The expectations we set in our lives comes hand in hand with potential consequences. Personal or professional, it is important to evaluate whether they are realistic and achievable in the context you are in, otherwise it makes it impossible to reach. Disappointments are sometimes inevitable in a working environment, considering the competitive society we live in; however, the complexity of personal relationships are likely to cause the same effect.
They say, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”, thus becoming a firm believer of this statement brings you one step closer to the realization of the situation. Understanding that the outcome isn’t a setback, but instead, an important idea to engrave in your mind. Not only this is an opportunity for growth, but it allows you to sit back and reflect on what went wrong. People often view disappointments as a step back from where they want to be, however, this is not the case as it is part of the process.
Trying a different approach to achieving your goals may mean stepping out of your comfort zone. Being open to exploring new options and ideas increases your chances of an accomplishment, therefore taking risks may give you the result you aspire. In personal relationships, it is vital to abolish any expectations you have of the other person, as it is that exact expectation which leads to disappointment.
Keeping a healthy mindset comes with accepting the loss, being aware of the situation, and be willing to move forward. Once you start training your brain to live consciously and spontaneously instead of being limited to peripheral outcomes, then a whole new game of life awaits.
