Positive assumptions

Assume the best, and then work to make your assumption true. Assume you can do it, and then go about finding a way to get it done.

Your assumptions exert a powerful influence on your thoughts, actions and perceptions. To make your life more fulfilling, make your assumptions more positive.

At any point in time, life has so many pathways to choose from that you cannot possibly perceive them all. What you will see are the possibilities you assume to be there.

That doesn’t mean those possibilities are imaginary. What it means is that those very real possibilities are discernible and available to you because of the assumptions you’ve made.

Negative, disabling assumptions lead you in the direction of a very dismal reality. Positive, empowering assumptions give you every opportunity to live a rich, fulfilling life.

Though assumptions don’t make your wishes come true, they can give you the perspective necessary for bringing your dreams to life. Assume the best, and you’ll encounter plenty of opportunities to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
