A different angle

You can learn many things from those who agree with you. You can often learn even more from those with whom you disagree.

Your own perspective is important, for it enables you to make sense of the world. Always keep in mind, though, that yours is not the only perspective.

You can listen to others, learn from them, and successfully work with them even though you may not agree with them on all issues. If everyone held the exact same opinion on every subject, then knowledge and wisdom would become stagnant and outdated.

Your own perspective will grow stronger and more useful when you regularly allow it to be challenged. When people respectfully agree to disagree, everyone benefits from the diversity of opinion.

Living a life of success and fulfillment does not depend on always proving that you're right and that others are wrong. To make real progress you must let go of the assumption that you already have all the answers.

Stay true to the values you treasure, while thoughtfully considering the different perspectives of others. Look at life from a different angle, and you'll always find new richness.

True! Can't agree more. Although I work a bit against it but I know I'm wrong and that listening to others and agreeing to their perspective, which is also right at times (:-P), is very important...

No one is really a victim of circumstance. But many are victims of the way they interpret and relate to their circumstances.

Choose to dwell on the positive possibilities. And you'll see abundant opportunities for bringing those possibilities to life.
