2021/05/06 Many people adhere to the belief that setting low expectations is essential if disappointment is to be avoided. Yet, even the most pessimistic person aims high or at least invests a bit more faith than they would normally in a plan they can practically feel will exceed expectations.

If you want it, you can have it.
