“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.” – Terry Pratchett
Being open-minded can be really tough sometimes. Most of us are brought up with a set of beliefs and values and, throughout our lives, tend to surround ourselves with people who share the same values and beliefs. Therefore, it can be difficult when we’re faced with ideas that challenge our own and though we may wish to be open-minded, we may struggle with the act of it from time to time.
One of the scariest (and greatest) things about seeing the world through an open mind is making yourself vulnerable. In agreeing to have an open-minded view of the world, you’re admitting you don’t know everything and that there are possibilities you may not have considered. This is the perfect time to consider RETOOLING (equipping) YOURSELF. Be spontaneous, have new experiences challenge your beliefs to do something out of your norm. It can be very liberating to look at the world through an open mind. #ResetYourThinking #HaveAnOpenMind
