Assumption curbs our curious mind & ruins our ability to look for solutions & possibilities. Assumption creates barriers.
What if assumptions are replaced by facts?! Many a times, I hear people saying,"I didn't approach this person despite of really admiring him/her because I assumed that the person might not like me or may not be approachable." Here you have a lost opportunity to connect with someone because of your own limiting thoughts. Assumption is fear in different form, holding us back. ===================================
The only way to replace assumption is to have acceptance & empathy towards the other person and the other person's world. Listen, understand, empathize and drop the assumptions. You will create amazing relationships and new possibilities never imagined before. Are you assuming that this is not possible?! Think again, go for it.
