You must stick to your convictions, but be ready to abandon your assumptions. – Denis Waitley
As a leader your convictions will serve you well when they are clear to you. But make sure that your assumptions don’t cloud your way of thinking. Assumptions can change with circumstances and are not always accurate. Convictions are core beliefs that remain steady regardless of circumstances. Inaccurate assumptions can restrict your growth and cause you to hold onto beliefs that may not reflect current realities. Convictions give you direction and a way to move forward. While your assumptions are not always reliable your convictions give you stability. Be willing to stick to your convictions and let go of the rest.
