So many people have a different perspective, or a totally different opinion. Are you willing to say “Okay, I’ll listen” or, are you ready to dismiss it entirely?
It is a choice.
You don’t have to…
- be open minded,
- willing to hear someone else’s thoughts,
- or, hear what they have to say.
But, it might be good to understand that while we are experienced, educated, and exposed to many (many) things in our lives, we don’t get to be a part of everything that happens. So, let’s be open minded and be willing to hear from someone else. It could be all the difference in the world to a friend, your kids, your colleagues or your neighbors. Saying “Okay, I’ll listen” might be the very best thing you can say (and do.)
