While being confident in your own values and beliefs, thinking critically about them helps to ensure that they continue to serve you.
Therefore, try and cultivate new perspectives each day.
Other peoples beliefs and ideas are a great source of inspiration, even if their beliefs vary widely from your own. Therefore, its important to mix with a wide variety of people.
There are many opportunities to learn when
confronted with new ideas.
Examining fresh perspectives can bring new nuggets of wisdom which enrich life. So it is always a good idea to be open minded and look at new ideas as possibilities.
If you realise that your own perspective is better for you than the one portrayed by a discussion partner, you can still be polite and considerate anyway.
Having differences of opinion is part of our life experiences as unique individuals.
Entertain all new perspectives, however briefly, so you know that your decisions are sound for you.
Intentionally seek out opportunities today to learn about new perspectives. Be thankful for each new idea that comes along, since each one helps reinforce or reshape your own views so that they are always in keeping with your highest good.
Ask Yourself These Questions:
- What new perspectives have I been exposed to lately?
- How can I approach new ideas so that I am more receptive to them internally, even if I disagree with them?
- How does a cultivating new perspective benefit me?
