We have already discussed that a lot of what we think we know is actually just our expectations being met.
We should all be aware that we can be so focused on building a solid foundation for ourselves that we forget the very foundations of our own lives. This isn’t to say that we can’t still have great expectations for ourselves. We just need to have a little more awareness than just being able to take our expectations and turn them into reality.
We all have expectations for ourselves, but we also have to have a level of awareness that’s not just keeping an eye on what the other guy is doing. In other words, we should be aware of what he’s doing when he is doing it, but also aware of what he’s doing when he isn’t doing it. This is something that many of us lack.
I think a lot of us would agree that our expectations are a lot higher than they should be. We expect that everything we think, do, and buy is going to be perfect, when in reality we are pretty much left to our own devices. It’s hard to control these expectations because they are created by our own thoughts and actions. We are not just playing a game, waiting for the other guy to win.
The biggest challenge with our expectations is that we often set ourselves unrealistic goals. We want things to be perfect right away, and while they can be, the reality is, they can also be. I have a friend that recently broke up with his girlfriend because he couldn’t wait for her to be a perfect date. I wish I could say that was the last I’ve had with someone, but I can’t.
While we need to be realistic with our expectations, we should also be realistic with our expectations based on our own thoughts. We should set them higher while we’re thinking about them. For example, if someone asks you for money right away then you could say, “I think I want $10.00.” When you get the money, you can either spend it or donate it to the homeless, or the homeless can spend the money.
You can set your own expectations here. If someone asks you for 10 bucks, you can say, I want 10.00. When you get the money, you can either spend it or donate it to the homeless, or the homeless can spend it.
The only negative expectation is that people might ask for money too quickly. But that’s okay because you don’t have to ask for money for too long. If you say, I’ll ask you for 10, but I’ll tell you to wait a while, you don’t have to wait long either if you do.
I think we can all agree that the only legitimate expectations we have of others here on Earth are to receive money very quickly and to be told to wait, if you dont want to wait, then shut the fuck up or go somewhere else for a while. I think that if you have a real expectation of another person, and that other person acts on that expectation, you have a good chance of having a happy, healthy and productive relationship.
Here’s the thing though. We generally expect that someone will act on our expectation, but it’s actually an expectation. We expect that another person will do something that we, ourselves, would not do. That expectation can be very, very specific. If you see that someone has a lot of money and they’re not going to change their behavior, you can go look at their bank account and be a bit more skeptical. This is also true of other people’s expectations about you.
