Out-Perform the Competition and Stand Out from the Crowd by Balancing Expectations, Says Author Connie Podesta
Expectations are what we think will happen. Reality is what actually happens. There’s a big discrepancy between the two because we usually expect too MUCH or too LITTLE. Either one causes big-time problems. And that’s why we must be reasonable, fair, and balanced when setting expectations, says author Connie Podesta in “10 Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd”.
Dallas, TX – (via PressReleaseNation.com) — Expectations drive most of our decisions and actions. They’re the key power source that pushes us to a future in which we out-think and out-perform our competition. Problem is, hardly anyone strikes the right balance with expectations. We shoot too high, we aim too low. The good news is: it doesn’t have to be that way, says award-winning author Connie Podesta in her new book, 10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd
“Meeting expectations makes a huge difference in your level of satisfaction and feelings of success,” says Podesta ( http://www.ConniePodesta.com/booking/ ). “And that is exactly why understanding, managing, and creating realistic expectations are vital to stand out success.”
Take a closer look at the three vital steps of expectations – Understanding, Managing, and Creating:
* Understanding: Do not base expectations on feelings, desires, thoughts, beliefs, attitudes or wishful thinking. Instead, think in terms of rational thought. Facts and figures. What works and what doesn’t.
* Managing: In order to stand out from the crowd in a positive way, it’s vital to manage expectations in a way that emits the following elements, says Podesta, who offers more STAND OUT STRATEGIES at ( http://1clik2.com/10Ways2StandOut ):
o Confident communication
o Willingness to pay dues and update skills
o Doing things before asked
o And making the best use of time at work
* Creation: Never forget that whatever we believe, think, feel or expect will happen… often comes true. That’s how powerful thoughts are when creating expectations. If one believes the worst is going to happen, it probably will. So even in the middle of crisis, the best bet is to aim for the best possible results.
“You can achieve balanced expectations with determination, hard work, concentrated effort, and a strong belief in your ability to change results for the better,” says Podesta. (More of her strategies for improving business and personal relationships can be found on YouTube – Re-Define Your Relationships, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mIxMh9fTXg ).
“Remember,” says Podesta, “the place you land between expecting the worst and expecting the best will change how you feel and act from that moment on. It’s crucial to make the right choice.”
