The Law of Assumption and Real-Life Balance

the law of assumption

The Law of Assumption Explained

The law of assumption is a metaphysical principle that states our beliefs and assumptions shape our reality. It involves consciously choosing and embodying positive beliefs, assuming our desired outcomes are already true. This process influences our experiences and manifestations, though it also acknowledges that unconscious or negative assumptions can impact our reality similarly, often without our awareness

Now let’s talk about how the Law of Assumption plays out in real like. The concept of the Law of Assumption is a popularized by Neville Goddard, which revolves around reframing your outlook to believe that what you assume to be true will manifest in your reality. Imagine having this unshakable confidence that what you visualize is already yours. The law of assumption states that, by believing the thing you want already exists in your life, you’ll manifest it into existence.

Think of it like you’re starring in a movie where you’re playing the role of someone who has everything you want. You embody that character completely—their confidence, their feelings, their life. You assume the identity of someone who has already achieved your desires. By aligning your thoughts and feelings with that reality, it becomes more likely to manifest your dream.

For example, if you want to land your dream job, you start by assuming you’re already that successful professional. You think, feel, and act as if it’s already true. This mindset shifts your behavior and energy, attracting opportunities and circumstances that resonate with your assumption - hence the Law of Assumption.

Everyday Assumptions

Now, let’s talk about everyday assumptions. These are conclusions people often make without checking the facts. For instance, you might assume someone didn’t text you back because they are mad, but in reality, they just got busy. These assumptions are usually based on fears or insecurities rather than solid evidence.

Think about a time when you assumed something and it backfired. Maybe you thought your friend was ignoring you, and you got all worked up, only to find out they were just having a bad day. These kinds of assumptions can lead to misunderstandings, unnecessary stress, and disappointment because they are not grounded in reality.

The Key Differences

Here’s where the Law of Assumption and everyday assumptions diverge:

Positive Intent vs. Fear-Based Conclusions:

By deliberately choosing positive beliefs to shape your reality you’re consciously deciding to assume the best, as if your desires are already fulfilled. Everyday assumptions, however, often come from a place of fear or insecurity, jumping to negative conclusions without real evidence.

Empowerment vs. Reactivity:

With the Law of Assumption, you can empower yourself by taking control of your thoughts and feelings to create a desired outcome. In contrast, everyday assumptions can make you reactive, leading to unnecessary emotional turmoil and conflict because you’re not dealing with the facts.

Deliberate Practice vs. Unconscious Habit:

Practicing the Law of Assumption requires being mindful with intentionality. You’re choosing to adopt a mindset that supports your goals. Everyday assumptions, on the other hand, are usually unconscious habits—quick judgments your mind makes without careful consideration.

Bringing It Together

To avoid the pitfalls of everyday assumptions while leveraging the Law of Assumption, start with mindfulness. Be conscious of your thoughts and the assumptions you're making, ensuring they are empowering and positive rather than fear-based and reactive. Always check the facts before jumping to conclusions—gather evidence, ask questions, and communicate openly to clarify uncertainties.

Aligning with the Law of Assumption means assuming the best-case scenario, like believing a friend's delayed reply is due to busyness rather than anger. However, it’s necessary to stay grounded by balancing these positive assumptions with reality.

Set your intentions and mindset with the Law of Assumption, but also stay connected to the real world by fact-checking and remaining open to feedback. This balanced approach helps you harness the power of positive thinking without losing touch with practical realities.

Balancing Positive Assumptions with Practical Steps:

Now, let’s talk about everyday assumptions again. Sometimes, we assume the best-case scenario because it aligns with our desires, like thinking you’ve got a job because the manager verbally offered it to you.

Here’s the tricky part: How do you balance the Law of Assumption with protecting yourself from potential disappointments?

1. Acting 'As If' with Practical Steps:

The Law of Assumption encourages you to believe and act as if your desired outcome is already true. This positive mindset influences your actions and interactions. For instance, assuming the job is yours helps you behave confidently. But you should also secure your position by getting confirmation in writing. It’s not about doubting your assumption; it’s about reinforcing it with concrete actions.

2. Faith with Due Diligence:

Think of it as having faith while doing your homework. The Law of Assumption says that you can assume you have the job and start planning your life around that assumption, but also follow up with an email summarizing the conversation and asking for a formal offer or contract. This ensures you have a record and can prompt the employer to provide a clear commitment.

3. Mindset vs. Actions:

The Law of Assumption is primarily about mindset. It means carrying the belief that you are already successful, that you love yourself first, and that you are deserving of all the good things life has to offer—like a fulfilling career or a loving relationship. This mindset influences your actions, but it doesn’t mean skipping necessary steps like confirming details in writing or following up regularly. If not followed through on, it can lead to missed opportunities or misunderstandings from "just assuming."

4. Balancing Belief and Evidence:

Based on the Law of assumption you maintain your positive belief (the job is yours) while looking for evidence to support that belief. If there’s a delay or lack of formal confirmation, it’s a signal to take further steps to protect your interests. This way, you align with your goal but remain aware of the reality, both in business and in relationships.

5. Set Clear Expectations:

If there’s a delay or uncertainty, set clear expectations with the other party. Ask specific questions like, “When can I expect to receive the contract?” or “What are the next steps in the hiring process?” This helps clarify the situation and sets a timeline for follow-up. If you don’t receive a clear and timely answer, such as a contract within a week to give notice to your current employer, express your boundary and needs to avoid any misunderstandings.

Practical Integration

Here’s how you can integrate both approaches: the Law of Assumption and positive assumption seamlessly.

Visualize and Feel:

Visualize yourself in the job, feel the emotions of success, and act with the confidence that it’s already yours. This aligns with the Law of Assumption and helps you maintain a positive outlook.

Communicate and Confirm:

Simultaneously, take proactive steps such as sending follow-up emails, requesting written confirmation, and staying in regular contact with the employer. These actions ensure you’re not assuming blindly but verifying your assumptions with concrete actions.

Prepare for Alternatives:

While holding the assumption that the job is yours, also prepare for other possibilities. This doesn’t mean doubting your assumption; it’s about being prepared and resilient. If the job falls through, have other options lined up, maintaining your overall positive momentum.

As a career coach, here is an example of how I would guide a client in this scenario:

Imagine you get a verbal job offer. You visualize yourself in the role, feel excited, and tell yourself the job is yours. This boosts your confidence and positivity.

At the same time, send an email to the manager:

Hi [Manager’s Name],

Thank you for the job offer. I’m thrilled about the opportunity to join your team. Could you please provide the formal contract and details about my start date?

Best regards,

If there’s a delay, follow up politely but persistently. Meanwhile, continue networking and applying for other roles, ensuring you’re not left stranded.
