Why is it that we have such a difficult time admitting we are wrong? I remember Carolyn Myss telling a story on one of her audio productions I was listening to. She tells about a friend of hers driving somewhere and Carolyn realized they were going the wrong way….in the wrong direction….away from where they were wanting to go….she pointed it out to the friend and the friend COULD NOT admit they were wrong and continued in the wrong direction!!Looking at things in a different way not only sheds new light, it gives us new perspective.

How can you ever get where you want to be if you can’t admit that you could be wrong? Looking at things in a different way not only sheds new light, it gives us the perspective that may reveal answers we have been looking for.
We Learn From Taking Action
We learn from taking action… using knowledge we gather along the way and that INCLUDES making decisions that may not be right. Yes that means that you are WRONG!!! That first admission of being wrong really hurts the ego but as you realize that it really does not hurt that much and see the respect others have for you… admission of being wrong is actually refreshing.
Admitting being wrong gives us the ‘real’ factor to others. Everyone DOES make mistakes… everyone IS wrong many times in their lives. So admitting it makes us more human… more approachable… more loveable!!
Wayne Dyer’s describes ego as Edging God Out. Interesting huh? Let’s practice letting that higher universal energy IN… practice being humble… admit that we are wrong… accept others thoughts in a loving manner.
Enjoy your life…one moment at a time.
Hugs and Love,
