Assumption is The First Step to Failure
Most of the time assumptions are what we hear from a person and do not know if it's true, but choose for whatever reason to believe it anyway. Assumptions are something that is accepted as true or as certain to have happen, without any proof.
Many assumptions are actually learned behaviour. They come from our culture, families, from what we were taught, or what we have experienced in the past. Assumptions tend to involve such forms of negative thought such as doubts or black and white thinking.
Example of a Assumption
- Most people are bad at heart, so don’t trust anyone you meet now. Because of past experiences.
- People assume you are arrogant when actually you are just confident about the person you have worked so hard to be.
Why you Don't Assume
Number one reason is assumptions are not confirmed truths. Assumptions damage our capacity to relate to others socially and build successful relationships with people. When it comes to your moods, assumptions also create spirals of negative thinking.
If you are always assuming you know how others think and feel, you stop listening and communicating with people. Which of course will cause you social problems and nobody wants or needs more problems. Life gives us enough already to worry about especially in 2020 with this virus.
When you make assumptions about others, you leave someone feeling trapped, misunderstood, and sometimes very hurt. People who overly assume things usually have trouble in relationships, friendships, and with people in general.
Wither at work, being out, or at home assuming can lead to low self-esteem and depression in people. You sadly will probably miss out on meeting many great people in your life, because you assume for whatever reason the person is something they are not in a negative way.
So everyone let's not assume because Assumption is The First Step to Failure. Assumptions are not facts they are Assumptions. So, next time before you assume something try this crazy thing called asking. It actually works very well.
