WHAT TO DO WHEN WE DO NOT REALIZE OUR EXPECTATIONS
by Wangari Murathe

"Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. (Proverbs 24:14 NIV)

Maybe you know the theory on the best way to set goals. They should be SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time bound). The problem is that this does not guarantee success.

What do you do when you are overwhelmed by disappointment because your expected success at something is not realized? Instead of focusing on what to do, where to go, and how you are going to accomplish everything, how about learning to judge yourself less harshly, releasing the expectations you have about it, and exploring new possibilities?

Be willing to go with the flow, trusting more in God and his purpose for you and maybe even greater things than the ones you were working towards might come your way.

"Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, and fresh hope. And out of hope, progress." ~Bruce Barton
