Our expectations can be so inflexible that even one small event can ruin the day for you. By maintaining an openness to changes in your plans and having back up strategies you will feel great every day.

A wise teacher once said, ” No appointments, no disappointments.”

We experience these somewhat similar emotions when we have created expectations concerning what we will receive from others, God, life or even from ourselves. We might also feel such emotions concerning our own abilities or efforts when we are unable to achieve the goals we desire.

We feel this way when things do not happen the way we expected, or more often, when others are not who we expected them to be. We develop expectations, and then feel cheated when we they are not fulfilled.

Also, when we do not achieve the results we desire, we feel disappointed and disillusioned in ourselves, others or God.

When we succumb to such feelings, we often give up making any further effort, which in turn obstructs our growth.

Positive alternatives to disappointment and disillusionment could be:

1. Understand that we are all in a process of evolution and that no one is perfect.It is unreasonable to expect of demand perfection from ourselves or others. We would not be here in this evolutionary process if we did not have much to improve.

2. Faith in the flow of life.There is a wisdom greater than ours. We usually want to get our desired results immediately if not “yesterday”. We need to learn that change, manifestation and creation are usually slow organic processes like a plant growing. There are, however, moments of quantum leaps.

3. Confidence that with patience, practice and perseverance, we can manifest the changes we seek.We can develop greater trust in our ability to manifest our goals and life purpose with or without the help of specific person.

4. Greater self-sufficiency will allow us to need less from the other and thus not be so dependent on them, expecting so much from them.When we feel secure, worthy and fulfilled within our selves we need much less from others and experience disappointment less frequently.

5. A larger sense of time, in which we realize that, any efforts made for less than fifty years, are actually small in relationship to the immensity of our being.

Take a look at your To Do list. If you had to categorize each task or project into work or fun, which way would the scale tip?

HA201 How to Let Go: The Principle of “witnessing”, self help article by Bill Harris
Everyday we communicate with dozens of people using the Centerpointe program, some of whom are having a hard time with the program. Sometimes these people are angry, depressed, fearful, anxious, or confused — or are creating any number of other responses.

One of the main instructions we give these people is to “watch what is happening — watch with curiosity.”

HA206 Pain and Suffering: The Principle of Good and Bad Generalizations self help article by Bill Harris
By now, most of you know that I am of the opinion that it is not necessary to live a life that contains suffering, and that there are definite ways to change your life from one containing suffering to one where you are happy and peaceful all the time.

Most of you also know that, in my opinion, the way to do this is to cultivate the ability to let whatever happens be okay and to not resist “what is.”

This doesn’t mean you’re okay with injustice and suffering or don’t do anything about them. It means you emotionally accept things the way they are and do not resist what is.

HA207 Secrets of Success; How to Be a Perfect Failure, self help article by Bill Harris
In my opinion, one of the greatest highs in life is creating something and watching it work once it has been created.

Humans were meant to be creative creatures and evolution has rewarded creativity and achievement with wonderful and pleasurable bursts of neurochemicals our brains create whenever we do something creative — not to mention possible financial rewards and the satisfaction and increased confidence that comes of having done something well.

But many people never (or rarely) experience this high. Why is this? Why do people not use this creative equipment they were born with and make their life an orgy of fun and creating?
