Most people feel they know everything. The hard truth is that you only know what you know. (This is why people with mentors tend to swear by them, i.e. Oprah Winfrey).
When you don’t actually know something you then have to assume.
There is an old saying – when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.
Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want.
Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. When you do this, you get to find out who people really are. You can’t assume someone’s character, they have to show it to you. Clearly explain what you expect from someone and by when – then sit back and see what they do.
By not assuming when it comes to others you can completely transform your life.
Let people and things show you who they are – then believe them.
