Guess you must have come across the cliché “make no assumptions?” yet still, many of us are quick to make assumptions even when we have no clear facts about the decisions we are about to take. But the truth is, making assumptions isn’t a bad thing entirely. In fact, it is part of our human survival instinct. Thing is, as humans we always have this knack to perceive energies and make immediate assumptions about all our surroundings.
Although we may not need this survival instinct as much as much as we did before, it is still important we don’t shove it to the back burner. Sometimes, a little assumption can save us a life of regret. Without mincing words, an assumption is one of the greatest arsenals gifted humanity. By making conscious assumptions we can help protect our lives and those of our loved ones.
Let me give you a clear picture of what I mean. Imagine walking down the street and then you suddenly notice someone behind you. Your instinct may arouse your sense of security to be sure you’re not being followed or in harms’ way. Although you may be wrong sometime, most times, assumptions may be the difference between life and death. Were assumptions usually go wrong is making a permanent judgment without verifying initial assumptions.
In a nutshell
Connecting to our animal instincts of survival is not only recommended; it is quite unavoidable. So instead of negating it, make the most of it. Note: Ensure you verify your assumptions before making any final judgment.
