Acts 12:11 says "And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews."
Own your expectations! So often we find ourselves concerned with what others think about us that we spend very little time with what we expect from ourselves. Expectation is a very powerful word. According to the Oxford dictionary it means "to have a strong belief that something will happen." People spend millions of taxpayers dollars to give you an expectation of you. From how long you will live to the quality of your life. Whether or not you will graduate from college to how much money you will earn in your lifetime. But, your expectation is as individual as your fingerprint. Stop allowing others to manage your expectation. Peter when he had come to himself was not only delivered from the prison but from the expectations of all the people. So whatever you do OWN your expectations!
