Mind over matter.

"Before you start assuming, there's this crazy thing called ASKING."
That's the first quote I read on facebook this morning and somewhere down the line we all know it makes perfect sense. We as human beings tend to make assumptions all the time, it's like a bad habit our parents never told us to get rid of. Before assuming we don't even give a minute to analyse or think about the what's and the why's of the situation. We just love jumping onto conclusions, don't we?

But have you ever thought why it is easier to just assume and skip the communication part? Mind over matter. We let our minds take complete control of a situation but the mind is a wanderer. We need to channelize our minds and think before we take a stupid step. We make assumptions all the time because we don't have the courage to ask questions. Think about it, is a wrong assumption really worth spoiling the bond you have with another person? Get your facts straight then you can happily jump to a conclusion.

We have no clue what someone else is thinking unless you ask them. You're not a mind reader. Basically, if you don't have first hand information about something and your thoughts are running wild, you're on an assumption spree. We love filling in the gaps with our assumptions.

Communication is the key. It is the problem solver. It helps you think straight and always gives you the right answer. The truth might be harsh but the only way to deal with it is to accept it. We usually assume the things we WANT to hear. It doesn't work that way. It's either black or white, no grey. And in the end its only your decision that matters. No one can control your mind, it's only you.

Challenge your assumptions and jump onto reality instead :)

See you on Friday!
