On The Key to the Window page, I explained that the only things this work requires are a sincere respect for the effort you’re making and a complete lack of expectation about the result you’ll receive. My right brain continues to try to point out to me how I often set myself up, that expectations are disappointments waiting to happen. Here’s a sample that helped me see it from a different angle:
Right Hand: Why do I have trouble celebrating my success?
Left Hand: don’t’ see it as success
RH: Why not?
LH: expectations not met
RH: Should I lower my expectations?
LH: doesn’t seem possible but sure would help
RH: I know. Even though I try not to have them, I always do.
LH: yes. don’t like surprises/too many ‘bad’ ones/ones that made you unhappy
RH: I wish I could trust in good surprises & be less defensive.
LH: always protecting yourself/us. we’re stronger than you think. others have told you how strong you are.
SECRETS: How your right brain responds to you only when you're ready to hear and only truthfully.
ENCOURAGEMENT: Understanding the nature of your work.
