One of the most important decisions of my life was when I chose to focus my energy on my aspirations instead of my expectations.
Expectations are dangerous. Life doesn’t owe you anything. To expect something is the quickest way to be disappointed. With expectations, you can only control your reaction, but not the outcome.
Aspirations, on the other hand, are a different ball game. When you aspire to do something great, you are coming from a different mindset. You are focused, driven, and have no sense of entitlement about the outcome.
Aspire: do the work.
