Are You Sure?

Some have the overwhelming desire to always be right. Their opinions are offered with great assertion to overcome any opposing perspectives from another. Objections aren’t to be considered, their opinions are firm. Obscure references have been compiled together to build a facade around their “always be right” opinions. Their mind has closed around their self-assured beliefs so that no other opinions should be considered.

To profess to be right, rather than to remain open to discover the right things, is a detriment to continuous learning. It is a detriment to the collective insights and depth of intelligence that might be gained. It is a detriment to relationships and the capacity to engage with others to resolve shared issues. It must be lonely to always be right.

Continue to learn and be open to the insights of others. See the perspectives of others as invaluable to the eventual discovery of the right things to do, alone or together. Be most cautious when you are the most sure that you are absolutely right. Are we still learning?

“What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.” — Bertrand Russell —
