Contrary to popular belief it is not your reality that affects your happiness but the expectations you have of your reality that does. Happiness at some point alludes us all, we try to achieve happiness through external sources but we never feel fulfilled. In this podcast I talk about how your expectations can be keeping you farther away from genuine happiness in your life.
What did you think about the podcast? In the comments let me know how your expectations are creating unhappiness for you. Where do you feel stuck because of your expectations? Have you recognized expectations as a barrier to your happiness? And what do you wish you could do to bring your expectations to a place where you still felt motivated by them but not dominated by them.
