Usually, you have clear expectations from your family, friends, and colleagues. But what about yourself?
So I decided to create a contract for myself. I listed all the things I expected from myself to live my life with dignity and love.
Setting Your Expectations Makes It Clear For You
When you know your expectations from yourself clearly, you can live your life aligned to your highest truth.
You will know your priorities in life and be able to spend your energy and time only on things that matter to you.
Find Power and Peace in Your Actions
When the motivation behind your actions is clear, you will find power in your actions. Every step you take will move you forward in life. You will know exactly why you are doing anything.
Ever since I wrote the my expectations down, I find myself living my life in a way that’s aligned to my love-fueled energy. For example: if something or a person does not serve its purpose in my life, then I find peace in letting it or them go.
Helps You Draw Boundaries
An important benefit is it helps you to draw boundaries in your professional and personal life. You know exactly how far you will go and even how far someone can cross their boundaries.
When you know your boundaries, you are also able to create your own value system. Creating one will help you live a life aligned to your values.
Are you honest about your expectations from yourself? Please share with me in the comments.
