“I expect great things from you, Katherine.”
-HMJ

It’s good to have great expectations for ourselves. Whether it’s academics, career, fitness, spirituality, or in any other aspect of self-improvement, we should hold ourselves to a high standard. Gordon B Hinckley (former prophet/ president of TCOJCOLDS) exhorted us, “Don’t be a scrub! Rise to the ground of excellence.”

But sometimes, unfortunately, raising the bar can mean that we are TOO hard on ourselves, especially when we make mistakes. As important as it is to have high goals, it’s even more important to practice self-compassion and self-forgiveness when we fall short.

How do you have high expectations

but avoid self-frustration?
