“Believe that you are what you want to be.”
The Law of Assumption states that we are what we believe we are, and our assumptions will inevitably become our reality, whether we take control of that or not. Therefore, your imagination has the power to change your reality. See how to use the law of assumption to live the life of your dreams.
What is the Law of Assumption
The Law of Assumption tells us that we get what we expect and believe will happen to us. In short, you get what you assume you’ll get. This means that you can change your life when you change your mind. Instead of getting stuck in a routine that will suffice, you need to teach yourself to expect the best out of every interaction you have in life. When you look forward to the future because you know you shape it through belief, it is easier to enjoy the steps along the way and fully immerse yourself in daily experiences.
How to Use the Law of Assumption
You are already using the law of Assumption, whether it’s conscious or not. However, consciously redirecting your assumptions impacts your life and can help you make positive changes and reach your dreams. The best way to use the Law of Assumption in your own favor is by adding brief, positive affirmations to your routine. Tell yourself things are how you want them to be and believe those things can be true for you with every fiber of your being. This isn’t ‘fake it till you make it.’ It’s more like creating a support structure to hold up those big dreams because you know they’ll need somewhere to land.
Law of Assumption Examples
Like the Law of Detachment, you can use the Law of Assumption in virtually every aspect of your life. Changing your perspective through positive self-affirmation can help you direct your assumptions and manifest the best possible life for you and your family. Below are three examples of how the Law of Assumption can help you live your best life.
Example 1- Law of Assumption in Love
Using the law of Assumption in love is unique. You must believe you deserve and will have the love that matters most. This means letting go of anything that isn’t the love you presume for yourself. Reminding yourself to stay flexible but not settle for less than you know you are worth can be a tricky balancing act. However, if you are willing to look honestly at what you believe you deserve, you can manifest a wonderful romance. Tell yourself daily, specifically, what you deserve and will have from your love life.
Example 2- Law of Assumption in Work
The Law of Assumption in work means always expecting your job to go well. Allowing yourself to succeed and reminding yourself that you deserve that success will take some work. Affirmations can help you stay on the right path. Take a few minutes every day to have a break and remind yourself that you are capable, worthy, and valuable at what you do for a living. Manifest your pay raises or other work-related achievements by telling yourself you can do it and you will.
Example 3- Law of Assumption in Parenting
Applying the Law of Assumption to parenting is a little tricky. The best way to do this is by using affirmations to manifest their good health, success, and even better family mediation. Tell yourself that your children are healthy, capable, intelligent, etc. Then use additional affirmations like, ‘my family can talk through any problem,’ or ‘I can always find a way to help my kids with their school work.’ Choose reminders that are specific to your goal and assumed outcome.
Law of Assumption Vs. Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction and the Law of Assumption are closely related. However, the Law of Attraction is more general. The basic concept behind The Law of Attraction is that you get back whatever you put out into the universe. A similar idea is taught in many cultures and belief systems. For example, the Law of Attraction is why we ‘do unto others’ because we are directing the universe and other people on how to interact with us as we put that behavior into the world. When we say ‘pay it forward,’ or smile, and someone smiles back, these are basic examples of the Law of Attraction at work.
The Law of Assumption is like the law of Attraction because you still get what you put into it, but the idea is more about manifesting the best possible outcomes because you believe in them, work for them, and genuinely deserve to have what you want. Using the Law of Assumption is more personal and goal-oriented. You can observe the law of Attraction when you start to work on applying the Law of Assumption to your life because you will have faith in your ability to realistically achieve your goals, so that is what you’ll attract. The more you work at it and watch the dynamic process in action, the easier it becomes to see both of these laws at work in your life.
Law of Assumption Affirmations
Law of Assumption affirmations all help you to remind yourself that you are in charge of your own path. Repeating these things to yourself often can help keep you in a positive mental frame so you can achieve your goals and dreams. You can guide your journey toward the desired results by assuming control over your destiny and direction. Below is a list of positive affirmations, but feel free to add your own as you go.

Don’t be afraid to state your exact intentions, and believe in yourself. If you are new to this technique, it may feel odd at first, but you’ll quickly get the hang of these brief, repeatable mantras that help you maintain your positive mind frame and work toward your self-betterment goals.
