Expectation For Your Life (By Age)

Five Years Old: "I'm going to be rich and famous."

Fifteen Years Old: "Maybe I won't be rich and famous, but I'm going to make a difference in the world."

Twenty Years Old: "Maybe I won't make a difference in the world, but surely I'm going to be successful."

Forty Years Old: "Maybe I wasn't a huge success, but my kids will be."

Sixty Years Old: "Maybe my kids weren't all that successful, but at least my best years are still ahead of me."

Seventy Years Old: "Maybe they weren't the best years, but nevertheless, I'm going to live happily in this house for the rest of my life."

Eighty Years Old: "Maybe I was forced into an old folk's home, but my grand kids will come visit me here all the time."
