Increase Your Expectations in 4 Steps

We live in a society where we are being overwhelmed with so many different sets of expectations that are required of us in the various roles we have: as parents, co-workers, citizens, etc. The burden of living up to other people’s expectations can sometimes be unbearable mainly because as Jake points out “nobody likes to be told how to live their life”.  

Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

On a more personal note, Jake opens up about his own share of outside expectations put on him as a  child. His dad was into personal development and had quotes plastered all over the place.  Even when we can celebrate the positive influences in our lives, we should still do the work to set out our own expectations and live them out.  

As you prepare your way to success, make sure you clarify the expectations you want for yourself.  You can do this in 4 easy steps:

  1. Start having your own date night (journal about who you are, what you want and how you’re going to get to your objectives)
  2. Plan (define your method).   You can start by getting a hold of your morning and evening routine.  Find 3 books with different perspectives on your objective and method: one that is really popular, an old fashioned book and a purple-cow book.
  3. Bright-line rules (make sure you don’t cross the boundaries you’ve set during planning).   Do not get carried away by your emotions or feelings.  
  4. A new vision.  Find an object that reflects the type of person you want to become.   Having this object to which you feel connected you will be more encouraged on your journey to success.  

“Do the work for you”, set new expectations and prepare to celebrate your achievement.
