My father always uttered this famous quote to me as a young child: “wherever you go, there you are”. The older I became, the smarter my dad was. Funny how that works. With that, I would like to expound on his colloquialism and unpack what role expectations play in where you are headed and how that relates to where you are.
The expectations you set for your life is where you will be.
If you think you are a victim of circumstance, you are.
All things are possible.
The greatest things in life ARE possible. So are the terrible things. It is important to understand that anything is possible in any circumstance. The question remains, how will you expound on the fortunate events, and use the unfortunate events to equip yourself for uncertainty in the future to manipulate your environment for success? Our culture and society often teaches us that it is vain to expect great things and to reach for the “impossible”. Yet, the human mind is vastly powerful and able to create circumstances and environments conducive to what you expect. If you expect to work like a dog and live a mediocre existence, your fate will be such.
