False Expectations Are Your Mind´s Lockdown.
More than often we fall into the trap where we value the expectations that others have of us more than we value and focus on the expectations we have of ourselves. That naturally lowers the expectations we have of ourselves and so we remain mediocre.
We keep our brain in lockdown. 😒
No one knows you better than you.
So no one should have higher standards and expectations of you than yourself.
Also, your set of expectations of yourself should always stand above all the expectations that others have of you. 💪🏽
You need to take back that focus from other people and put it back onto you and evaluate what you expect from yourself daily. 😎
This is when you really hit the sweet spot to achieve your goals since you will give the best, and put yourself to the test of your own expectations.
Comparing yourself to others will tune out from your brain completely and you will not hear that noise anymore!
What an amazing kind of silence that is!
Does it really get the best out of you?
Are you destined for more (or something different) than what your parents (or the society) expect from you?
And if you were to tell me that they expect more from you than you can handle, then the reason is that they expect the wrong things from you.
They see you with their parental (societal) filter and they are unable to see your deepest desires and HOW you want to express those desires — what medium so to speak you will choose to express yourself with to fulfill your dreams.
Let´s forgive them, they are only human. 😇 Take responsibility for your life and be the conductor, not the flute player, nor the violinist, nor the cello player.
None of the players. You need to be the conductor. 😎
And the instrumentalists in your life are your heart, your mind, and your hands that take action on what you tell them to do.
You tell them to play it safe, or you tell them to play it out loud, depending on what is needed in your current situation. Conduct your life in every aspect. I can tell you it is the MOST AMAZING feeling. 🥰💪🏽🎉✨
Try it today and let me know in the comments what area of your life you are going to conduct today with full responsibility. ✍
In case you need more help on how to overcome that trap stay tuned for the next story tomorrow ✨
Much LOVE + SUCCESS 💕
