High expectations can be either motivating or discouraging, depending on your mental wiring. Expectations are based on what we believe or predict will happen. Unfortunately, life is anything but predictable so expectations often bring pain and suffering. Acceptance is something completely different. When we accept something, we deem it to be adequate or allowable. When we choose to have high standards, and not high expectations, we are better positioned to motivate ourselves and also we have much more control of the outcome. "It's a very funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it." William Somerset Maugham
