Ambitious hyper-achievers have high expectations, not only of themselves but also of others.

We think others should be aligned with our values and work ethic – we believe everyone wants the same level of power, wealth and independence.

I projected onto my first daughter. When she started skiing I told her she could be an olympian, when she started playing the guitar I told her she could be a rockstar.

Some people may say it’s inspiring and motivating to help people see their true potential, but in reality, we steal the playfulness away from the actual activity.

Let’s make sure that we set expectations for ourselves and not superimpose them onto others.

And we do set expectations on ourselves, let’s make sure we are doing things that make us happy in the long run. This is what creates true happiness.

Rather than setting expectations in ourselves or others just to make us look good.
