Having high expectations isn’t a bad thing, until they no longer are achievable and as a result, debilitate you. Tune in to hear my story of how I dealt with the reality of not being able to live the life I once had and adjusted my mindset and action steps to reach new heights in a more manageable way under those new circumstances.
- I am going to treat myself better and give myself space to be imperfect.
- I take my worst attribute and do what I can to avoid it coming to the surface and in doing so that behavior becomes my best attribute.
- High expectations are great but when they don’t match and take into consideration the circumstances of the moment, they are dead expectations.
- It’s not that I am LESS THAN, I just have a different set of circumstances that alter my expectations.
- I came into this moment of clarity on a pity party and left on a party bus.
- I am not incapable of doing what I have done before. I just have to do it differently.
- The best thing you can do is be real about what you’re facing.
- I am not a lesser version of me, I am the best version of me in this circumstance.
