It’s A Trap!!
You do it. I do it. We all do it.
It’s a set-up, and when you fall for it, you run the risk of frustration, disappoint, anger, and resentment.
What is this trap, you may be wondering? The “Expectation” trap. Yes, I’ve talked about and written about this subject before, but it’s worth the reminder, especially as I found myself in the expectation trap again. (You can watch the Facebook Live video below where I talk about this!)
Going down the road of expectation is a one-way road to despair. Whether it’s an expectation you have of another person, or something you expect to gain or lose from doing something, having an expectation sucks the power away from you. It disempowers you.
So, what are you to do? Instead, set an intention. By setting an intention, you are in control of your feelings, actions, and responses, which thereby EMPOWERS you. Expectation sucks the power away and having an intention gives you the power.
Don’t fall into the trap of expectation. Set an intention, which puts you in the driver seat, and you get to choose the road.
Heading into the weekend, and the first week of June, set an intention now for how you are going to enjoy it!
