How to Stop Assuming The Worst

March 1, 2023

Most of the time, when our brain perceives uncertainty, it will automatically jump to the assumption that something negative has happened. It’s just the way we’ve been wired for thousands of years. The good news is, however, that can actually start to change that automatic programming, by putting our thoughts and our imagination to use for us in a way that serves us greater. In this podcast episode, Lorissa talks about how we can manage our thoughts in a way that shifts our thinking to a more positive light and can often times can lead to even greater positive results in our life.

Hello, my sisters in Christ. Welcome to this episode of Made for Greatness. I am your host today, Lorissa Horn. And I am gonna be talking about the topic of assuming today. This is a topic I feel like I know a lot about. I have struggled with this in my life in many ways for many years, and it is also something that I have been very intentional about, especially in the last few years when it comes to really focusing on managing my mind and managing my thoughts better. So I feel like I have grown a lot in this area, and I’ve learned some things that have helped me significantly, particularly to have more peace in this area and to really be able to manage my mind better. And so here we are, we’re gonna just dive right in. First of all, I wanna highlight the definition of assuming, basically when we assume something, the definition is to think or believe that something is true without having proof of it.
