133: How to Manage Expectations
If you find yourself easily disappointed or frustrated by relationships and/or situations in your life, it’s time to take some #radicalresponsibility, friends.
You create your own experiences, for better or worse. You have more power than you think. Cause, let’s be honest, you’re a badass.
But even the baddest of asses hits a rough spot every now & then, right??
Here are a few tips to help you manage expectations:
- Assume nothing
- Create win/wins
- Communicate, communicate, communicate, and then communicate some more
- Be assertive (not aggressive)
- Set boundaries
- Expect hiccups
When you put these practices in place, you will be able to much more accurately create the exact experiences you desire. You will also open the door for the people around you to do the same. Win/Win!!!
