Expectations are troublesome products of the mind. To go into something with expectations is to set myself up for disappointment. Disappointment cannot exist without prior expectation.

It is important to check for expectations. Everything I undertake is accompanied by expectations. At this stage it is not necessary to eliminate them altogether. For the moment it is sufficient to recognise them and be aware of their existence. Do this and they are less likely to cause disappointment.
