Keep your expectations low and motivation high and you will never be disappointed.
Expect the boss to give you a good word and you’re asking for disappointment, but that doesn’t mean work hard to excel with or without the recognition.
Stop thinking that special person for you is the next one you’re going to meet and make you that special person.
Throw the best party and have six people not even show up (or tell you they’re not coming) and no matter how many others have a great time, you are likely to be disappointed.
We can only be disappointed when we allow ourselves to expect more than we have a right to deserve.
