Day 22: Open Your Mind…

Spirit of the Earth
The biggest mistake that many of us make is in believing that our way is the only way to get something done.

Sure, it’s wholly possible that you have devised the most efficient, effective, and effortless way to do a particular thing, but that doesn’t mean that is the best way for everyone else.

Each of us makes our own way in this world via a path that we set, using the method that’s most comfortable for us.

We might take cues from different schools of thought on how we might best accomplish our desired goal but, in the end, we still have to make our own way—and we do.

That said, you have to be willing to allow others to do the same.

Don’t force your views, beliefs, or philosophy on another just because you feel they are incapable of being successful without the,—that’s not only arrogant, but short-sighted on your part. Be respectful of the process each person needs in order to reach their maximum potential—not yours.

In the end, I’m simply advocating acceptance.

Accept the fact that your way isn’t the only way. Allow yourself the opportunity to see things from another perspective, and allow that perspective to be an additional feather in your cap as you continue to evolve, learn, and grow.
