Everything that happened today is as it should be. Some people will tell you that you need to set lower expectations to avoid disappointment. Never give in to that kind of thinking. Everything that has made humanity great started with setting high standards and having high visions.  Have big dreams for yourself. Go for the gold. Anticipate hardships. Anticipate learning. Allow yourself to detach from negative emotions associated with “disappointment”.

Disappointment has nothing to do with your progress in life. You have to allow the universe to be what it is. You have to allow yourself to feel satisfaction.Look at your emotions and ask if they are negative and if they are recurring, if the answer is "yes" banish them. Stop pouring energy into things that are disappointing and focus on what has been learned by the experience. Be excited about the learning. Develop a learning mindset and never be  disappointed again.

There is a story about a king who traveled with a trusted servant who believed that everything happened for the good of all. As they passed through a foreign land, the inhabitants demanded a fee. The king sent his servant to negoitiate and the decision was that the king must chop off his little finger as payment. So the king's finger was cut off. Upon arriving home, the king threw the servant into prison. Soon after, the king was captured as he slept and the capturers prepared him as a sacrifice to their god; they discovered  that he had a finger missing  making him unsuitable as a sacrifice so he was set free. When the king returned home, he released his servant. The king asked the servant if you believe that everything happens for good, why was it good that you have been in prison. The servant answered, If I had been free, I would have been with you and I would have been the sacrifice since I have no fingers missing.
