Optimist Has Expectations?

I have wanted to be an optimist, and also tried to expect something constantly despite inevitable disappointments. Are there any connection between two? I hope some because it's a little easier to understand these two ideas if so. I looked up the words.

Optimistic
hopeful and confident about the future
Expectation
a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in thefuture 
(New Oxford American Dictionary)

Hmm, it sounds like they have some connections, but I can't explain it well yet. So, I asked my English teacher. She said, "Not necessarily." In her opinion, to be an optimist, it's not necessary to have ambitions or expectations.

Okay, I'll take her words so far.
