We Fire Up What We Wire Up: Free Yourself of Expectations

Life without expectation is a life filled with surprises!

Think about the last time you were upset  because a plan fell through or something did not go the way you wanted it to. That emotional feeling causes negativity and disappointment. People are wired to live with expectation, but if you can change this mindset, then do it because you’ll be much happier. 

Peace Begins When Expectations End

You see, the easy and negative way out is to play the blame game or sit back and suffer with one question: why? Forget about it and move forward because all of that is such a waste of time and energy.

Let’s really take a minute to think about this. Living with this mindset: “they were supposed to do this,” “she said she would be there,” “I thought we would have X amount of sales by this date,” “we were supposed to leave at,” “I thought he would at least put away the laundry.” Move forward. You can’t live with expectation, because life is not linear. You’re going to run into situations like this all the time, have some empathy and tap into deeper perspective. You will be a lot more positive and happy in going forward. You will also maintain stronger and more prosperous relationships with those who you surround yourself with. 

Perspective, it’s everything.

Freeing your mind and living life without expectation will transform every experience in a positive way. You have to focus on what’s going on because typically there is something much deeper there. If you feel let down, challenge yourself to think about what might be going on in that person’s life. There is a lot more to the circumstance, but the truth is you have to let go of what you cannot control and keep focusing on being the best version of you. So move forward, you do you and stay in your lane so that you can achieve your goals. 

How do you do this? When you feel let down, just move forward because there is no reason to get upset over something out of your control. Don’t put your happiness in the hands of someone else because happiness is an inside job.  Make the best of the situation at-hand and keep on keeping on. 


Living life without expectation positively transforms your life

Living life without expectations positively transforms your life. When this circumstance arises, if you figure out how to navigate the moment and move forward, you increase your self-awareness. 

Navigating the moment leads to a domino effect of positivity. But think about it, if you move forward without expectation and focus on empathy every time this happens, everything else is a surprise.


  • Independence
  • Gratitude
  • Greater level of potential
  • Strengthen relationships
  • Increase your leadership qualities
  • Focus on positivity
  • Experience sustained happiness
  • Stay on an action-oriented momentum 

Next time you experience let-down, hold yourself accountable and approach the circumstance with empathy. The reason why I wanted to share a little about this topic is because lately, I took note that most conflicts are the result of living with expectation. Especially in relationships and friendships.

It’s sad, too many people are experiencing unhappiness because they are living with expectation. If you really want to live your dream, strive to be the best version of you everyday. Whatever that might look like. Focus on happiness and gratitude for every moment, if things don’t go as planned adjust sails and move forward and if they do, enjoy the moment.  

I hope that reading this article inspires you to live life free of expectation.
