It has been said that you tend to get in life not what you deserve but what you expect. Expect your best, give it your best, do whatever it takes to reach your best—and give thanks for the opportunity.

Define expectations for you and your brain. Base them on innate giftedness, what you are passionate about, your mission in life, and how to give back¾to leave your corner of the world a better place than you found it and people better off for having crossed paths with you.

People generally know themselves better than you do. Listen to what they tell you. Believe them. It is unhelpful to keep expecting them to be something other than they choose to be—no matter how much you would like that to happen.
