“How to Rise up to the Expectations of Others?” – Professor M.S.Rao

“Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.” – Earl Nightingale

All over the world, the expectations and aspirations of the people are rising. Employees expect a lot from employers, customers expect a lot from companies, students expect a lot from teachers, children expect a lot from their parents and citizens expect a lot from their leaders. At times, it is tough to rise up to their expectations due to human limitations or lack of resources.  The solution for this is the empathy from all stakeholders. People must realize the fact that they must be reasonable in expecting from others. They must emphasize on excellence to grow constantly to rise up to others’ aspirations. They must learn, unlearn and relearn with the changing times and technologies to live up to the expectations of all stakeholders.

Conflicts arise when there is a gap between the expectations and the reality. In order to avert conflicts, it is essential not to have unrealistic and unreasonable expectations from others. Additionally, it is essential to empathize with others. At the same time, it is essential to be out of the comfort zone always to prove and excel in life. Dave Anderson rightly remarked, "Don't get complacent. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and set higher standards of achievement for yourself. Once you've achieved a standard of excellence, never let it rest--push yourself even higher."

This is a highly cutthroat competitive world where there are no excuses for lack of performance or failures. Hence, people must be careful with their commitments and constantly strive hard to prove themselves and excel in their lives.  

"Don't lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality." - Ralph Marston
