EXPECTATIONS
Vinod Anand | 09 Jul 2011

Every one expects from oneself something or other in time to come, but quite often whatever one expects does not happen. Expost (desired) do not become exante (what happens in reality). If that is so, then why should we expect something from others?

EVERY ONE expects from oneself something or other in time to come, but quite often whatever one expects does not happen. Expost (desired) do not become exante (what happens in reality). If that is so, then why should we expect something from others? There are some important quotes in this context: "Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail"; "High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation"; "Problems are the price of progress"; "Don't bring me anything but trouble. Good news weakens me"; "Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny"; "Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for."; "I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be."; "I have no regrets in my life. I think that everything happens to you for a reason. The hard times that you go through build character, making you a much stronger person".

There is no end to such quotes. The best thing is that when someone comes in this world, he or she should worship The Almighty, who sent us to this world, the parents, through whom one is born, and non-toxic friends and relations. This will make life happy and peaceful. I wish all the best to everyone. I am sure you will like this brief write-up, and follow the prescriptions.
