Top 10 Expectation Quotes

"Expectation" is the belief or anticipation of future events, shaped by past experiences, current information, or desires. It influences behavior, decision-making, and emotions. Expectations can be positive or negative and apply to personal achievements, others' behavior, or specific events. In different contexts, it can mean:

  •     Psychological: Anticipating outcomes, affecting feelings and actions.
  •     Statistical: The expected value or mean of random variables.
  •     Economic: Predictions about economic variables like inflation.
  •     Social: Societal norms dictating behavior.

Expectations are powerful as they can create self-fulfilling prophecies, where belief in an outcome helps bring it about.
