In this podcast Shann asks if you are setting super high expectations for yourself and increasing your own stress and anxiety levels.
Shann: Recently I've been thinking about the difference between expectations and invitations. We touched on this in last week's podcast: Expectation or Invitation? How Your Choice Affects the Quality of Your Life. This week, I want to take this idea a bit further.
The definition of an expectation is: the strong belief that something will happen in the future. The definition of an invitation is: the action of inviting someone to go somewhere, or do something.
This someone can be related to self!
When you combine the to you can see that you now have the action of inviting someone to go somewhere, or do something, that will happen in the future.
You are now inviting someone to support you in the pursuit of whatever you are creating, with the understanding that when there is an agreement, they will show up to the best f their ability at that time.
For tips on working with your expectations in a way that can help you feel less stressed and more supported, please listen to the full podcast below:
