It’s easy to get stuck in the “I’m right” mindset. So much so that we argue our own rightness to the point of insanity. This is a form of motivational bias that compels us to find ways to land a debate in our favor, even if we’re wrong.
I urge you to ask yourself, “how do I know I’m right?” I’ve asked this in a previous post but I want to take this a step further and ask you to focus more on the greater good than on your own personal rightness.
I understand that’s a subconscious battle for most of us and that it can be very hard to admit when your wrong. But, if you are you are. Admit that your wrong and listen. You may learn something.
That’s the only way to propel yourself and those around you forward. Let’s NOT divide just because you want to be right. Let’s NOT ostracize just because you feel there is shame in being wrong. Instead, admit when you don’t have all the answers and then come together so that WE do.
Never let the I’m Right mindset come before relationship. It’s better to grow together than it is to grow apart.
