Question Your Assumptions

What assumptions have you already made about today, and why? Consider that some of those assumptions may no longer be accurate, and may very well be holding you back.

It's comfortable and convenient to assume you can't do something. Yet such an assumption quickly turns into a continuing limitation that you place on yourself.

Things that were true for you many years ago may no longer have any validity. By holding on to those old assumptions, you prevent yourself from making the most of the new opportunities that come your way.

Think of how dramatically the world has changed in the last ten or twenty years. Have your assumptions about your own possibilities kept pace?

You may be carrying assumptions that were placed in your mind by people who no longer play a role in your life. Take a close look at the choices and decisions you make, at the goals and aspirations you hold, and examine the assumptions behind them.

Make it a point to regularly question your assumptions. By so doing, you're sure to find much value that you've been hiding from yourself.

By maintaining a positive attitude I find windows of opportunity that I never knew existed. I have learned that dreams can come true if I dare to dream and "believe" that I can do it. I have learned how to make life worth living again and am more confident and adventuresome today than I was 30 years ago.

Just for today I will allow my dreams to unfold, I will step beyond what is simply comfortable and dare into uncharted waters of my life. Just for today I will live my life in the best way I know how, with courage and faith.
