There is a danger in life when expectations become beliefs. Especially when those things that we expect are out of our control to deliver.
When expectations become beliefs bad things occur. Our thinking becomes too rigid and we begin to delude ourselves by acting in ways driven by our warped point of view. We lose sight of the fact that we aren’t in control of the outcome we expect.
Our belief demands our attention as if it was a truth. When this happens we have no patience to wait to see what will come next. We lunge at what we believe is true.
There is no explanation for this happening other than being human. How easily we get detoured. How fragile our points of view can be. There is always a need for us to seek out different points of view to make sure that the detours we face are truly the right ones.
