Keep an Open Mind!

Last Update: May 04, 2015

I'm sure most of you have heard the saying, "The Mind is Like a Parachute, it works best when it's open." Well, this is so true. You just have to be open to new ideas and new ways of doing things. You have to be willing to listen to others and keep an open mind about what they are saying. You may think that your way is the correct or perfect way, but someone else may have different ideas that might make things just a little bit easier or just a little bit better. But you won't know unless you listen and give it a try. I know a few "close-minded" people and usually things have to be done their way or no way at all. Sometimes they will bad-mouth others if they don't agree with them. They don't want to listen to new ideas or try new ways of doing things. Those people don't know what they are missing!

I have learned so much since joining Wealthy Affiliates. Every time I get on this site, I learn from everything here. I learn from the training sites, the blogs I read, the webinars, the discussions in chat, and the questions and answers at the end of each lesson. I also learn a lot when I just sit down to write content, whether it's from the research I've done or from trying to wrestle the ideas that are stored up there in my head down onto paper or onto the computer screen. If you keep an open mind, there are so many ways you can benefit from being here at WA, which may include helping others, obtaining help for yourself, and also learning as much as you can from all the different avenues found here.

There is also much to learn in your everyday life. Slow down, stop rushing through life, try to listen to others, pay attention to what is going on wherever you are, help when you can, and ask for help if you need it. There is much to learn from life itself if you give yourself a chance. Just remember to always keep an open mind and absorb just as much information as you can no matter where your life may lead you!

Having spent much of my life in male dominated areas I finally convinced them that women do think differently and when we all listen to each other what we produce ends up as a holistic, well balanced view whatever you are doing. Your blog is very true and I agree with it whole heartedly.
