The Happiness Formula

Did you ever take a course that was so important that it changed your life?

May I share one of mine with you?

A general semantics class from a college professor who said this:

“…we ought to keep our expectations of achieving a goal low and our motivation for working to achieve it high”.

When we let our expectations go too high, we are disappointed when they are not fulfilled which is much more likely than the fulfillment of our expectations.

With high hopes you are prepared for BOTH success and failure.

But with high expectations, only success.

“Expect the worst and hope for the best” – the only happiness advice you will ever need.
