018 – Does your expectation bring happiness
In this week’s episode, we talk about one of the things that may or may not pose as a challenge in our daily lives; our own expectations. More often than not, we are motivated to do things, big or small, by the common expectation that we’ve already formulated in our brain. We are already anticipating an outcome from everything that we do. Sometimes, the actual result of our actions may or may not be to our liking, or at par with our expectations, which makes us feel different from what we expected.
At the same time, Nadia speaks about the expectation of our surroundings towards us. This expectation sometimes dictate the way we present ourselves to the world, thinking that this would conform to others’ expectation of us. May it be our friends, our spouse, or simply other people that we deal with in life, they would have expectations of us, and it is up to us if we would conform to these expectations or not.
Wrapping this episode up, Nadia leaves with us the idea that whether or not things align or not with our expectations, we have the full freedom to act upon it and decide how the actual outcome affects us. Good or bad, we decide for ourselves whether the expected outcome makes us happy, or challenges us to become better people and tell ourselves that even the worst outcomes yield good in them.
