One’s expectations belong to no one else. It’s all about expectations.

Readers who have ever wondered how they can achieve their dreams – yes, even the ones they rarely share with others -- will discover in the Sigmons’ book that success is all about expectations. Readers can review guidelines and explanations using a “…Road Map…©” of fundamentals necessary to define and cope with their everyday expectations. The “clues” are:

- Improving relationships at work, at home, and at play

- Gaining the ability to deal with conflicting opinions in everyday life

- Harnessing the proper communication skills to achieve one’s expectations

- Creating awareness of the emotions and traits involved in the results of one’s expectations

- Discovering insight into one’s own spiritual needs

- Questioning one’s thoughts about the role of government

These tools will advance one’s entire life from childhood to adulthood; from student to workforce; from doubting to believing; and finally to trusting in oneself to meet and exceed one’s own expectations.

Included are anecdotes and illustrations to empower and to help one understand one’s own life expectations. The authors have developed and provided this vital information to show how to be more in touch with oneself and with others, how to reach the goals one dreams about, and how to become a connected part of society.
