You work really hard.
And at some point that work stops becoming a process, a way of life, an approach.
Instead, it attaches itself to a goal.
A goal in your head, created by your expectations.
And then you don’t hit the goal.
Suddenly, while you should have met that moment with the reality of it, you end up meeting the moment with the expectation of how you would have liked it to be.
And at that moment, you fail yourself.
You let yourself down.
Reality generates action. Expectations generates reaction.
