Everything that we have discussed thus far naturally influences our expectations of life, of others and of ourselves. What is especially relevant here are other people’s expectations of us; because we tend to live up to people’s expectations of us in various circumstances — for better or worse.
It is said that our expectations are self-fulfilling prophecies. Therefore what we expect out of life we tend to get back — creating our life experience as we know it.
One way to take control of our expectations and the methods of how we tend to evaluate the world around us is to begin consciously framing and reframing our reality.
Frames are simply mental structures used to help guide our actions, shape how we see the world and the meaning we ascribe to people and events. Reframing is a tool used to help us consciously transform the meaning given to events and circumstances.
