Welcome some contradiction into life…

“Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It always amazes me how much personal worth people stake on “being right” instead of “doing right.” No one has 100% perfect information, and by gaining insight from different perspectives, you have a much better chance of arriving at a more accurate answer.  

If you aren’t worried about being right, then those who offer a contrary opinion won’t be seen as attacking you.  

There is nothing wrong with being wrong, as long as you learn from your change in perspective. Welcome some contradiction into your life; you just might learn something…
