"Today, I will set my expectations at a reasonable, realistic, and attainable level."
Sometimes it is not our capability, it is our expectation. Many of us may be overachievers, and as a result, we tend to set expectations a little to high. This leads to disappointment and self condemnation when we don't meet the expectations.
In reality, it is the expectation that is unreasonable or unrealistic. So, there is nothing wrong with you, there is something wrong with your expectations.
Try bringing it down a notch and set expectations that are both realistic and attainable. In this way, you will meet what you set out to do and be encouraged by doing so. Once the expectation is met, then set another one.
Also, be careful of your expectations of others. Is what you are asking reasonable? attainable? realistic? Contemplate this. Maybe what you are asking of others, they just cannot meet. And how fair is that?
Consider all the facts surrounding what you are asking. And set expectations accordingly. The more realistic and reasonable your expectations, the less you will be disappointed when they higher expectations are not met.
So, for today, set expectations at a reasonable, realistic, and attainable level, and then work toward them. You will find much more success, and thus, be more encouraged to continue setting reasonable expectations.
