You ought to expect better of people. It encourages you to be a better person yourself.

What did you expect?

I am not in this world to live up to other people’s expectations, nor do I feel that the world must live up to mine.

Being remarkable

Don’t live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable.

Wendy Wasserstein

Try this: Watch yourself, watch your behaviour, your actions, your habits, and ask yourself -Why am I doing this? Am I doing this because I really want to or because everybody is doing it, because I feel this expectation that I should be and act conformable.

In most cases this questioning won’t lead to a change. You wont start reinventing your life, but as soon as questioning the purpose of everything becomes a reflex, you’ll recognize instantly when you drift from living your own life to living some different expectations. And nothing holds you back from being and acting remarkable…
