Step 1

Hey there!

Were you able to watch one of the movies yesterday? If so, what movie did you see?

If not, try as best you can to watch one of the films in the next 24 hours. If that's not possible, continue on to Step 4.

We understand that sometimes people have constraints they can't get around. Do the best you can. Continue on with the steps, beginning with step 4.

Step 2

Describe what you thought was happening at the beginning of the film versus the reality that was later revealed.

What was true? What was false?

Step 3

Does the film make you want to be certain that you have factual information before coming to any conclusions about an important matter?

Step 4

Really think about how life looks through the lens of pain and/or disappointment.

What we experienced early in life can distort reality. Since most of us experience things we'd rather not, there's a lot of potential for distortion.

The goal of this course is to challenge your assumptions, so that you'll find out what's really going on in a situation before you act on impulse.

How are you doing so far?

Step 5

Rate the frequency of arguments and/or hurt feelings since you starting doing the 'Perception vs. Reality' navitents.

Step 6

Here's an adage to live by: Look carefully at the word 'assume'.

Break it down. When we assume, we make an Ass out of U and Me.

Both people feel humiliated. Not fun.

Jump up to the video icon for a visual about assumptions.

Are you catching yourself more and more and keeping yourself from assuming that your eyes are telling you the truth?

Step 7

Go do something nice for a stranger today.

No particular reason. Just try it and post what happened to your JP Next Step Camps or to the Publisher below.

Step 8

See ya back here tomorrow!
