Replace your expectations for appreciation, it will change your life!
“Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.” ~ Tony Robbins
If you want to have fulfillment, I am not talking about achievement, I understand achievement is a set of other principles, but to be fulfilled, trade your expectation for what? … for Appreciation, it changes your whole life.
Expectation is just like an opinion — everyone has one — and they don’t always match up to the other person’s thoughts. Bickering can be born of of this which is a problem.
Fortunately, there is a solution! When our focus is squared center on our differences in expectations, rather than our appreciation for the things the other person does “right,” conflict is always inevitable. The way any two people decide to fold the towels, for instance, will probably differ… but does that make one of the ways wrong? Of course not. Expectations with no appreciation leads to nagging, which leads to frustration, which leads to…you guessed it, bickering.
That sentiment can apply to anything in life, but if we apply that same thought to our relationships, appreciation can be the trigger that puts an end to your relationship bickering for good.
