Why is it that some people seem to make constant progress in their lives, while others appear to repeat the same mistakes over and over? Often, it is the way that they approach obstacles and challenges. It's the difference between being close-minded or open-minded.
Here's How To Tell Which You Are:
If you find that you are close-minded, know that it is a mindset that can be changed. This blind spot can be eliminated by consistently slowing down your response to always saying what is on your mind, stopping your need to be right, and hearing only your thoughts. Replace these behaviors with curiosity, an openness to others' opinions and perspectives, and reflection.
“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” - George Bernard Shaw
