Exceed Their Expectations | Queen of Your Own Life

by Cindy Ratzlaff

Nobody expected her to do much of anything. They didn’t encourage her to set goals or follow her heart. They thought that what they saw was all there was. They underestimated her. ~ Queenisms™The expectations others have of us can drive our actions. Some are reasonable. Our boss has the right to have the expectation that we’ll do the job we are paid to do. Our children have the right to expect that we’ll love and care for them. Our spouses have the right to expect honesty, love and a shared commitment to partnership and we have the right to expect the same in return.

But when it comes to the calling of your heart, the creative vision in your head or the longing in your spirit that guides you to “be” who you are meant to be, no one’s expectations can be ahead of our own. We need to heed that call. We get to choose. No parent thinks “Gee, I expect my child to write a book when she’s 55 that will  inspire thousands of people .” That was my expectation of myself and I didn’t even figure that out until I was, well, 55. So expectations can change. Nothing is set in stone. When you fee that tug on your heart that says, “I can do this.” Do it. Don’t let anyone’s vision of who you “are” stop you from being “who you can become.”

Do you have an emerging expectation of yourself that you haven’t even voiced yet? I’d love to hear about “her.” Sometimes all it takes is saying it aloud. I’m hear, listening.
