Taking action from assumptions ain’t smart.
Have you made an assumption today that influenced you to think negative, unkind, or limiting thoughts about yourself or others? What action/s did your assumption prompt you to take?
Are you now experiencing pain or conflict because of the action set in motion by your assumption?
> Did you say something unkind or sarcastic to someone, because you decided that person was being rude or hurtful to you first?
> Did you misread a situation and take an action that has sabotaged the trust or comfort others had for you?
It can FEEL EMPOWERING IN THE MOMENT to act from our assumption … until we realize that we’ve created unnecessary drama, distance, and pain.
Now we have to try to fix the mess — which can feel really hard if we struggle to get humble and apologize. Many of us would rather play the victim or blame game.
Life daily sends us to Growth Boot Camp to push us toward excellence. Our pain is often the necessary catalyst that leads to growth. But we learn a huge lesson when we recognize that we often create unnecessary pain through our assumptions.
We focus on winning the battle — not realizing that we’re creating a war.
ACTION: Today, analyze where your assumption/s have brought conflict, pain, and drama into your life.
Q: What triggers tend to cause you to make negative assumptions?
Q: Can you recall old wounds, hurts, and negative thinking that powers your assumptions? What can you do to remove this hurt from your mind and body?
Q: What is one bad habit you can replace with a healthy habit that will help you to see where you are making an assumption?
Q: What small issues are in your life today, that you can address so they don’t fuel a war tomorrow?
Our success — defined not as our job title, wealth, or social clout, but the depth of our joy and satisfaction — is greatly influenced by our thoughts. When our thinking is fueled by assumption, rather than reality, we can make mistakes and errors that invite unnecessary stress and drama into our lives.

This is so true. I screw up every single time I make assumptions about why someone is acting the way they are.
