How Not To Expect Leads to Perfection

Sometimes we expect more from others because we are willing to do more for them. We demand more from others as we know we can do the same or even surpass what has been done for us. Motivated? Inspired? Well, partly yes but not entirely.


NLP aims to help minimize the frustration in the self by eliminating possible build up of negativity. The way he thinks, believes and act would be duly processed and thus perceptions and predisposed notions would be understood in a manner that would warrant less expectation and frustration at the same time. Being able to live a life of less negativity implies a life of change and one that is balanced both innately and externally – something that NLP aims to impart upon the self.

Life is but a give and take relationship; an exchange that enables the self to participate and contribute with others and vice versa. There is that need to be in the presence of another in order to appreciate the unwritten code of life.

They say never expect thus you have to expect the unexpected. I say, easier said than done as life is all about expecting and we are always expecting. To inhibit from such is attainable but is not sustainable. Admittedly, I would like to believe that I can withhold my yearning and not expect but, I am just creating a façade that would let others believe, and myself too, that I am not expecting. Nevertheless, in reality, I am. In short, deception enables the self to play around and thus end up even more frustrated than before.

With the help of Neuro Linguistic Programming, hereinafter referred to as NLP, the self is able to learn how to adapt in the ever-changing world and more so, learn to appreciate the beauty and tragedy of expecting the unexpected. Although personally difficult to let go and not expect, it is feasibly possible as it intends to control and discipline the self of the consequences of the unknown. Bear in mind that we have that certain knack for foreseeing the unseen and at that, we tend to expect more than the usual.

Through NLP, the self is able to share his life with others. May it be in the form of words, actions of gestures, the self is permitted to embark on an exchange spree still with limitation as to warrant sanity and logic in the self. It is of no contest that whenever we open ourselves to another or others, we tend to lose integral parts of ourselves and that is something that NLP wants to eliminate. NLP seeks to maintain the perfection and completeness of the self despite the many demands of the society.

Although considered normal, be not demanding of others as it just creates a buildup of frustration in the self. Do but do not demand, give without restrictions and most of all, love unconditionally — for you will never know when you will be rewarded more than that, you have ever imagined.
