Assumed to be inadequate


Assumptions are those things that eventually appear as facts because we’ve been making those assumptions for so long that we don’t see reason to question it any longer.

It’s a theme that sets in over a long period of time, and becomes the lens through which we see the world.

More importantly, it becomes the lens through which we see ourselves.

When we lose sight of these assumptions, we either become delusional about our success, or self-deprecating about our inadequacy.

Either way, it denies us a harmonious and fulfilled life.

As we respond to the demands of life, we slowly grow convinced that we were compelled to do much of what has contributed towards the quality of our life.

For example, it’s the avoidance of homelessness that drives many to seek employment, or the need to pay debts that convince us to spend wisely, or the need to hold on to our jobs that drive us to improve our knowledge and skills.

Each of those are driven by fear, even though we may find some joy or accomplishment in them.

When fear is the underlying motivator that drives us to accomplish big goals, we soon find ourselves wondering once more, “OK. What’s next?”

We end up chasing life and slowly getting worn down when we lose sight of the fact that regardless of the reason why we HAD TO DO something, our ability to do it was a true reflection of our capability.

That’s the part that we should focus on. Our capability, not the fear that drove us to be capable.

Take away the fear, and suddenly you’ll realise that you don’t need an external motivator to accomplish goals in life.

You just need to recognise your own abilities, and develop your own vision for the life that you want.

It’s really that simple.

It always starts with you.
