Proverbs 9:12 and Expectations

by Tim Connor

tim connor 50If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit,

If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.”

-      Proverbs 9:12

Expectations -

One of the biggest causes of frustration and disappointment in life is the unrealized expectations we have of other people's behavior and things we can't control. 

Why won't my kids, spouse, employees, friends, and so on, act the way I think they should? 

They never will, so relax and let it go. 

You can never be happy, attached to the expectations or outcomes you have for other people or life, no matter who or what they are. 

The execution of all behavior by others and life are in life's hands, not yours. 

I am not implying here that you should never have expectations. I am only saying that if you want to spend a lot of time and energy being disappointed, expect others and life to do...whatever!!
