Hidden possibilities

Just because an experience has gone a particular way a thousand times is no reason it will go that way again. Every situation is a new opportunity.

Life is incomprehensibly dynamic. Everything is in motion all at once.

Yet all too often you rely on a static, unchanging map to navigate through it all. That leads you to make assumptions that have very little basis in current reality.

Of course you don’t have time to think all the way through every decision, so you must make certain assumptions. Yet you must also keep in mind that some assumptions could be holding you back.

Humility can be very useful in addressing the issue. Remind yourself that you don’t know it all, and that helps you avoid getting stuck in debilitating assumptions.

Don’t keep telling yourself you can’t when in fact you can. Look closely and see all the possibilities you’ve been hiding behind your assumptions.

— Ralph Marston
