In this episode, Dan is finally going to tell you the secret to always getting what you want, when you want it. And the secret is…
Let go of the idea that you should always get what you want when you want it.
Instead, spend some time thinking about your expectations. Start, perhaps, with expectations you have of your partner. Are they fair? Are they unfair?
More importantly, have you communicated your expectations? Have your expectations been negotiated and agreed upon by your partner?
When we fail to consider our expectations and to talk about them with others, we are setting ourselves up for resentment. Listen on for tips from Dan on how to get clear about what you expect from others and how to manage disappointment when you don’t get it. You’ll be amazed by how much a shift in your expectations, and a shift in how you approach them with your partner, can improve your relationship.
