Why Limit Yourself With Assumptions?



Depending on how deep and far your assumptions go, they can be of great benefit to your life and can also become a strong bulwark between you and the endless possibilities life has to offer.

Therefore, challenging yourself to look beyond your assumptions and to find the realities which exist puts you right in the center of life: the truth.

Because many of us are scared to the face the truth, we prefer to live in a room of assumptions—mostly mischievous assumptions.

When you spend too much of your time assuming what things are, would be or could have been, you rob yourself of the reality—what things really are, what they were and the endless possibilities of the future being different from anything you can assume.

It’s when you embrace the reality of things that you can find within them the lessons, the hidden beauty, the certainty and the inconsistencies to be able to sharp the future ahead of you.

Of course life offers enough experience which can be put into good use in a way of assumptions but what’s the good in assuming when you could verify— find out the reality?

Many of us have caged ourselves in a tiny box of no possibilities, filled with same pattern of assumptions when reality is far from that.

The fact that your ex-partner cheated on you does not mean your assumptions about the new one doing the same or going to do the same is what reality has to offer. There is a clear distinction between assumptions and reality but for many, the lines are blurred.

If your last business failed, grab the needed lessons and find out what will happen to a new one—instead of spending a great deal of your time assuming.mark-twain-quote

It’s time to look beyond your assumptions by verifying the thoughts which randomly take a seat in your mind. Assuming too much can make you loose touch with reality—a situation may of us constantly find ourselves.

There exist new experiences, new ideas and valuable possibilities outside the scope of your assumptions, no matter how wide you open the net—therefore, everything is possible and reality wouldn’t necessary fall within your assumptions.

Don’t limit yourself with assumptions, jump into the pool of reality where infinite possibilities flourish—by acting and finding out.

No matter how enchanting your assumptions are, the real beauty of life hides in living it—the reality, so seek that!
