Your parents often consider that they know what's best for you, and they push you to achieve certain results, and to aim for certain jobs, even if it's not what you really want.
You can never live your life for anyone else, and you will fail if you try, because you can never match someone's high expectations when they don't match the real you, and your real desires.
If you carry expectations with you they will only limit you, because you will be fixed with the details of 'how' things should happen, and any time you think you 'should' be doing anything - you need to let it go.
You are setting yourself up for disappointments if things don't work out exactly as they've been planned, and you can knock yourself completely off course, instead of being able to be relaxed, and know that being flexible is the surest way to success.
When you build up confidence in yourself, and your own capabilities, you will only expect the best for yourself. This means that you don't settle for second best, or make do, because you know your own worth and value. We have covered how you can learn to trust yourself in previous posts, which builds your self-esteem, and provides the grounding you need to expect the best from the life that you create.
The more you know yourself, the more you know exactly what you expect from life, and the more focused you will become on attracting that. Once you expect abundance - then it will appear. If you tell yourself that it isn't possible to reach your goal, and that you're not good enough, then you will never be able to achieve your dreams, and the only time you will see them is when you're asleep.
If you want to wake up full of excitement because you expect each day to bring you everything you're working towards - then you can! You can release the expectations of others, and liberate yourself to decide what suits you. Once you know what feels right, then you will expect everything to fall into place - and it will!
This is how the ZPoint Process can help you. You can be guided to lose any guilt you are holding on to - because you are not letting anyone down by choosing your own direction. Then you can experience how good it feels to step into your dream goal, and you will know how right it feels for you. This will give you the confidence that will carry you through whatever happens, and you won't give up at the first hurdle, because you will expect to find the solutions that will see you cross the finish line.
