"Don't get your hopes up!"

Were you warned of this as a child? What does this say? It says that life is bound to disappoint you. It says, don't aim high because you're not likely to get what you want. It says that we can't expect good things to happen to us.

As our thinking creates our reality, this kind of thinking dooms us to a mundane existence. It's time to change our stories. Why not focus the immense power of our hearts and minds on bringing to fruition the very best life has to offer? Allow yourself to hope and believe in all possibilities.

  • My Dad was like this. I know that it was just because he loved me and didn't want me to feel disappointed, but it was not much of an esteem booster!!

  • My dad was exactly the same Chataround. He was over-protective, never allowing either me or my sister to do anything that might be a risk. Consequently we both grew up over-anxious. As I've got older and have acquired more confidence I like to try most things as an antidote to becoming too much in a rut.
