Challenge Your Assumptions

Remember, life is messy. Believe that you matter.

Sharks are enormously powerful and wild creatures, but you’re more likely to be killed by your kitchen toaster than a shark!” (Ted Danson)

Your daily dose of sanity

It’s time for each of us to challenge our assumptions.

Day #15 of Sanity

Too often we have misunderstandings at work and/or at home because of assumptions we make. Many people get stuck in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. Often, we want to feel safe so we stick to what we know. It makes us comfortable to follow what we know; what is proven.

You don’t have to experience the world in any specific way that someone else dictates. It all comes down to how you define success and failure. If your success is determined simply by numbers, you will always be a slave to the numbers; they will be the clock that keeps score of how you are doing, compared to everyone else or the norm. We learn to be safe but safe can also be risky.

We can stay safe or we can blow things up and get rid of barriers. Whatever path you choose, do it mindfully. And know that no one has the answer for you, unless they spend time understanding you. You can decide whether you want to follow the Dummies Manual or create a personalized  plan for yourself. And you also have the ability to choose simplicity over complexity. Remember, life is messy. Believe that you matter.

Ask yourself:

  • What is your biggest fear?
  • What assumptions are you making that get you into hot water?
  • How do you challenge yourself?
  • Who can you ask for help? And why are they the best person for you to reach out to?
