Surprisingly many of us have been conditioned from a very young age to set out expectations really low to avoid disappointment and this is where the rich really stand out from everyone else – because they’re the ones that always expect the best results regardless of the circumstances.
Imagine a football coach constantly telling his players that they’re going to lose – chances are high that their morale will drop and that they’ll lose. It’s the exact same thing with everything in life – you get not what you want but what you expect and if you're constantly expecting failure – that’s what you’ll always get.
“High expectations are the key to everything.”– Sam Walton
If you're one of those people that always expects the best from themselves and everyone around them than you're already in a league of your own – and you deserve to be there! In addition to having high expectations rich people always have a plan – but not a typical life plan like find a good job, get married, save for retirement, have children and retire – their plans are more detailed and can change in an instant when a new opportunity presents itself. If you're not hung up on a schedule and always have a plan for what you're next move, goal or action is going to be than chances are high that you're on your way to becoming a very rich man.
Having high expectations means that to some degree you have to ignore what everyone else expects you to do or become and question the world around you relentlessly!
