I have heard that putting expectations on things only will lead to discouragement.  And even with that, I have put expectations on everything from competition placings to trips to parties.  Ever gone to a New Year's Eve Party and had the expectation that it was going to be this amazing time where you are having a blast and meet that special someone enjoying the farewell to one year and welcoming the new year with that new hottie?  And then it doesn't happen!  How do you feel?  You usually feel let down.  But what if you went to the party without a thought-up plan about what you were wanting to happen other than you were going to enjoy the ride of the night?  Then no matter what the adventure, it's fun!  I don't think expectations are bad though.  But I think it's a matter of defining those expectations.  If you go to a competition and are bummed at how you did, what were you expecting?  Were you expecting to win?  Were you expecting to beat someone?  Were you expecting to do this much or that much?  If you were able to define the exact expectation, then was it a realistic expectation?  You can't expect to have a result of something that is nowhere close to what you have normally done.  But you can change the expectation.  What if you change it to "I'm expecting to do my best, to keep pushing even when I don't want to do another rep, to not talk any negative talk during the event no matter how good or bad it's going"?  These are things that you will be able to do.  These are things that are all within your control and from here the results will be what they will be.  And you will be happy because you wouldn't have failed your expectations. :)
