Ep58: Expectations vs Standards – get clear on yours and transform your relationships! (episode from Sacred Leaders)

Episode Summary

Today’s episode was inspired by so many of you! I receive many questions regarding standards and expectations and how to truly get clear on the difference between those two; how to own them and how to best communicate them, so here it is!

In this conversation, we dive deep into:

  • The difference between standards and expectations.
  • How to know if your standards and expectations are coming from a space of love or one of lack, control and demand; from self honoring or from an unhealed wound or trauma.
  • Breakdown of a simple process you can use to get started with having more loving, fair and honouring standards.
  • Taking responsibility for your expectations.
