How Expectations Affect Your Life Outcomes -TPS238

Have you ever heard the expression, you get what you expect? In this episode I examine whether this is true or not and why it’s necessary to have realistic rather than fantasy expectations.


  • Your subconscious is your autopilot.
  • Your expectations have to be congruent with your habitual thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.

  • If you go into business with a history of business failures, you may have a subconscious expectation of failure.

  • When you make positive changes, those who know you might push back.
  • So many people who expect the best get it, but that isn’t true for everyone.

  • I look at the difference between fantasy expectations and realistic expectations.
  • Along with what you expect, you also have to understand the marketplace.
