- Tips to Improve People Skills
There are times when we like to think that we’re right and someone else is wrong. But there are never absolutes when people disagree. Sometimes, we like to convince ourselves there are, but that’s wrong in itself.
No viewpoint is without scrutiny, question, or challenge. In fact, all viewpoints are exactly that: a view of where someone sits in terms of life experiences, backgrounds and beliefs.
Holding to conclusion that your viewpoint is right and someone else’s is wrong is a missed opportunity to expand your horizons and see an issue from a different angle.
In short, it’s a missed opportunity to learn, and to understand, and a missed opportunity to find common ground.
So let go of stubborn hold you have of right and wrong viewpoints, and accept them for what they are – simply a perspective from which someone has traveled so far in life.
Holding to the conlcusion that your viewpoint is right and someone else’s is wrong is a missed opportunity to expand your horizons.
