Avoid the ‘hangover letdown’ from failed expectations. When we things don’t happen according to the planned expectations we create, we may experience what Christine Hassler has coined an “expectation hangover”. Instead, develop a curious non-attachment around future plans to allow them to flow the way they were intended. Focus on cultivating a positive mindset with quality thoughts and you will soon discover how to maintain and strengthen this curious non-attachment to guide you in life.
