‘Expectations Are Just Leftover Praise’

“Expectations are just leftover praise. They are a blessing. If you didn’t have the capability to meet them, they wouldn’t exist.” ~ Chris Shiflett

We often look at our expectations as something we desperately need to meet — as a possibility for failure — but Chris Shiflett offers another way to look at them. When someone expects you to do something, it’s because they hold you to a certain standard. If that standard is high, it’s because they believe you’re capable, or should be capable, of meeting it. If you see your expectations as unreasonable, perhaps the problem isn’t that they actually are but that you need to believe in yourself as much as other people do.
