The Cost Of Being Right - A High Price To Pay (part two)

Published on 7/2/2019

J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince

We will never recognize where our next opportunity lies if we do not remain open to possibilities.

To remain receptive to what the world has to offer, we must keep an open mind and heart.

We must learn to listen to what others have to say.

We must be aware and conscious of what is being offered to us at any given moment.

We must realize that there is much to gain from listening and not speaking.

If I am too busy pushing my agenda, I cannot possibly hear what is being said and therefore I may miss out on what could be an opportunity to experience deep learning and personal growth.

Looking at the big picture versus the immediate helps put things in perspective.

If I don’t get my way, is it a matter of life and death?

Will I even remember this incident in ten years from now?

Some things are simply not worth the effort and being right all the time fits into that category.

Think of what it is like to be heard?

How do you regard someone who takes a sincere interest in you and what you have to say?

Those people who hold a genuine curiosity about others are magnets.

We are attracted to them because they make us feel good about ourselves.

They in turn are rewarded with deeper friendships, better working relationships, more meaningful and loving personal relationships and a universe that continually opens with more possibilities.

Start by simply noticing if you are overly invested in being right when you have a discussion with others, be it at work, at home, wherever.

Just notice how you are being and perhaps, why?

In the noticing you will become very aware of how you interact with others.

Imagine being in their shoes and seeing through their eyes.

What do you look like from their viewpoint?

Is it a picture you like? If not, how could you do things differently?

As you notice and do things differently you may start to see dramatic changes.

Or the changes may be subtler.

As you do things differently, people will start to react differently.

Your world will open up. You will start feeling more connected.

You will learn new things that had remained closed off to you before.

New possibilities for a life that is more meaningful and fulfilling will appear.

Being righteous and being self-righteous are at the opposite ends of the spectrum.

It’s the difference between people who are full of themselves versus people who do the right thing.

Who do you choose? How do you want to be perceived?

A life well lived is a life where being right is not the be-all end-all.

The be-all end-all is a life well lived.

Luckily, as human beings we were given free will and the ability to choose for ourselves.

It all comes down to choice.
