The thing that came to the forefront of my mind is: assumptions.
Let me frame this for you. Think of the last time you felt disappointed. Now, think of the last time you felt discouraged. Lastly, think of the last time you felt like you weren’t good enough (at anything.)
What do each of these scenarios have in common? ASSUMPTIONS!!
You were disappointed because you assumed your significant other knew what you wanted, and they did the opposite. You were left discouraged because you assumed that you were going to hear back about that opportunity right away and you didn’t (but then you did a week later.) You felt like you didn’t measure up when you entered the room and assumed that everyone else was more experienced than you (they weren’t.)
I can’t count the number of times I made an assumption, and I was wrong.
Next time you make an assumption- or in other words jump to a conclusion, misjudge someone, or make something mean something that has zero meaning- consider that you might be wrong. So when the feelings of discouragement, disappointment, and unworthiness arise ask yourself: “what if I am wrong, what would be possible?”
Allow this new perspective shift (also known as a miracle) elevate your energy, your attitude, and motivation.
I’ve tested it.
My clients have tested it.
Now it’s your turn to test it.
I’ll leave you with this:
If we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that sometimes our assumptions and preconceived notions are wrong, and therefore, our interpretation of events is incorrect. This causes us to overreact, to take things personally, or to judge people unfairly. – Elizabeth Thornton
