Understanding the Nature of Sanity

by Dr. Rick Kirschner on September 16, 2011

Whatever you assume to be true, you’re going to act like it’s true.  You can’t help it.  And the way you act will influence people, places and things in such a way that you will find proof for whatever you assume to be true.  In this way, your assumptions can limit your effectiveness, tie you up, hold you back or trap you into self defeating counterproductive behavior.  Your assumptions can make a loser out of you.

Here’s a video clip from a live presentation I delivered to 1000 people 11 years ago about the relationship between what we assume, what we do, and what we get in life, using the vehicle of a metaphor about the door lock on a car.  It applied then, and it applies now. Only the car is no longer available.  Enjoy!
