Should we keep expectations?Whenever we do some task we always have some expectation about the result. Based on how we have done it we may expect a positive or negative result. We might have noticed that if we are having positive expectations for something and results come out negative than we feel sad and let down. On the other hand, if we are not expecting and the results come out positive it gives us a surprise and we feel overjoyed. Any positive thing coming unexpectedly always gives us a unique feeling and joy.
So doing the work and not keeping much expectation we can avoid miseries related to the failure to some extent. Simultaneously we can enhance our joy of getting success if we get a positive result. So does it mean that we should not keep positive expectations regarding any work we do just to avoid bad feelings we get if we fail? Sometimes expectations give us a reason to try further and do more so keeping no expectations can mean a pessimistic approach to life. Although this may be a coincidence but sometimes we see that when we expect something it does not happen but when we do not expect it happens.
