Have you ever faced a situation in which you assumed that something was going to happen….but it never did?
Have you ever looked at someone and assumed they weren’t worth the time to get to know…thus missing one of life’s greatest assets…Friends
Some assumptions keep us from growing and changing…because of the fear that doing something different
Assumptions can derail an opportunity…prevent us from branching out of our comfort zone. They cause some to view the glass as half empty…and before we know it…negativity seeps into our thoughts and we suddenly have become a pessimist….
You know that person or you may be that person…with a chip on your shoulder…believing that the world is against you…
So what is a person to do…when we see ourselves assuming the worst?
People aren’t against you
Just because something happened to you last year doesn’t mean bad luck is your lot in life!
Don’t be the victim…consider how you can turn things around…taking some action is better than doing nothing at all.
Post positive scriptures or affirmations on the bathroom mirror…kitchen refrigerator…office cork board. (A few of my favorites are below)
Failure helps us grow and I believe it enables us to make better decisions the next time …and hopefully make fewer assumptions.
Time is precious…don’t waste it on assumptions…look for the positive…if you must assume…ASSUME THE BEST.
