Your expectations are your strong hopes or beliefs that something will happen or that you will get something that you want. Last month I read Jack Canfield’s book, The Success Principles for Teens. He talked about expectations, he mentioned about scientists that researched the brain. In the past, scientists believed that the brain responded to information that it received from the outside world. In fact, new research has shown that the brain is reacting to what it “expects to happen next.”
In other words, our expectations are what the brain is reacting to, not what is actually happening around us. So, when we have expectations such as, “I can’t do this.” Or “I don’t have enough skill” then this is what our brain expects to happen, so the chances are high that we will not succeed.
Changing our expectations is the first step in being more successful – especially with English. If you are in a situation where you need to use English, have a positive expectation, and remind yourself, “I can do this!” and “I am good enough.”
