“Expectation Therapy has put a whole new meaning to what EXPECTATIONS mean in my life. My expectations set the stage for my entire life. Reading this book changed my whole outlook and taught me how to achieve personal growth, in my personal life and business. Most importantly, this book has set me up with the mental tools in order to push forward in my business, prosper in my passion and be able to provide a company culture where my team can flourish!”

Bryan Dulaney

Founder & CEO of the Perfect Funnel System

“I’ve never thought about expectations from the perspective that Art gives in his book. Immediately I thought about my expectations for myself and for the people who are in my life. Let’s just say light bulbs went off in my mind and the stories in Expectation Therapy have impacted me to think differently. It’s a super fast read that you will enjoy and all you have to do is pay shipping and handling. It’s one of those books you want all of your friends to read too!”


Author & Conscious Comedian

“Wow! Where to begin? The more I read, the more expectations framed my future in all the ideal ways. Most significantly, my relationship with Self and my children has become one of authentic and jovial dialogue. My professional life has evolved into one of purpose and passion where I am simply rewarded for expression.
I am so grateful for Art’s expression and generous sharing of what this work has done for him and those of us who have applied his concepts to our lives. What a remarkable read. So simple. So profound. It exceeded my initial EXPECTATIONS and has transformed my way of living forever!”


COO of the Perfect Funnel System

“Expectation Therapy has completely transformed my life. I thought I knew what it meant to have expectations, but after reading Art’s book… my thoughts have changed. My relationships are being enhanced with all those around me.
I feel like I was looking at expectations wrong my entire life. I always quoted “No expectations, No disappointment”. I felt as if I didn’t have an expectation then I wouldn’t be disappointed. I now know that I should be expecting things in every area of life.
I approach life differently since reading ‘Expectation Therapy’, even my fiancé noticed the change in me. So blessed to have found this book.”


“Expectation Therapy is a short volume filled a lot of wisdom. At the heart of Art Costello’s book is a simple but powerful idea: we must set high expectations for ourselves if we are to achieve our potential. Costello discusses how faith – belief in a higher power, in our friends and family or the goodness of life – helps give us the confidence to achieve our goals.
I believe there is a lot of good practical advice and insight in Costello’s book. I find him to be a humane and thoughtful guide in his subject matter, which is the art the art of living. I think Expectation Therapy will help a lot of people, and I highly recommend it.”


“A great book…I thoroughly enjoyed it and read it in 2 reading sessions. For me, it was a page turner. I consider myself a very positive, “look for the silver lining,” kind of person, and Art Costello’s writing took me way beyond that. So simple yet so practical for small, as well as large, life events. Thank you, Art, for showing me new dimensions to achieving my goals!”


“I was very impressed with this book. I love self-help books – this ranks at one of my top favorites. Well written. Thank you for the great inspiration and motivation!”
