People say you should be open-minded, should be updated with the world and accept how the world is doing like accepting of people from diverse backgrounds and listening without judging. Even though that’s sensible in theory, some people find it difficult in practice. That’s troubling because having an open mind is not only the right thing to do, it’s beneficial in ways you’ve never imagined.
Open your eyes. There are many shades of color other than black and white. Being open-minded inspires you to:
Expand your horizons. Challenge yourself and your thinking by having and facing different viewpoints daily in your life rather than being in just one corner of the room.
Enhance your decision making. Improve your way to make the decisions as you have to take wise decisions and it can only be happen when you enhance your decision making.
Expand your relationships. Prefer to work in team rather than working individually to make more contacts and enhance relationships.
Challenge the status quo. Advance positive change by encouraging debate and buy-in rather than leading by command and control.
Build trust. You have to be fair and truthful rather than being biased on one side.
Enrich your personal growth. Remain open-minded to personal feedback rather than repeating mistakes because you failed to learn from them.
Obtain the truth. Obtain truth from your opposing parties and try to nurture it in your way as you have to maintain it for yourself not for others.
Keep your eyes open for the world around you, may be you just got to learn something. This will make your decisions better and make your relationships grow more stronger. Being open-minded doesn’t demand a major investment of your time but rather, a fresh new way of thinking. It just requires your faith and hard work.
Learn to be open minded to people’s opinions, even when you don’t agree !
