Full Potential Blog #7- Open Minded
What's up my friends!? Hopefully the month of June has been awesome to you! Make sure to check out previous blogs if you haven't already. Also, don't be shy about spreading the word about Full Potential Blog with friends and on social media. This month's blog is about being Open Minded and how doing that will help you reach your Full Potential! Lets get started on taking another step closer to reaching your Full Potential!!!
Being open minded everyday is a hard thing to do. But it is probably one of the best ways to grow and learn to reach your FULL Potential!! A lot of people in today's world (including me) think they are experts on everything. They are "know it all's" (me) so they think their way is the only and best way to go. I'm going to tell you right now, nine times out of ten you aren't really right or there is a better way of doing something. Being open minded helps you learn and grow as a person. Being open minded doesn't mean listen and do everything you hear. It means consider things, think about how they can make you better and don't be so darn stubborn all the time.
People who are open minded are the people getting one step ahead every single day and learning something new everyday. They might do something they have done for years because it works well, but they might try another way that someone told them that could work even better and make them better. They don't get stuck in their ways. Growth is one of the best things you can do till you die. If you learn everyday you are growing. Who doesn't want to become better everyday?
One of the best ways for me to be open minded and grow is to be open to new experiences. When I was young, I used to not want to do things because I didn't want to get out of my comfort zone. Once I did, I had a blast, made some new friends and learned new things. Be open to do new things and get out of your comfort zone. One, you learn to do new things. Two, you're pushing your comfort zone bigger, also known as growing. And three, you just might do something that you will forever love. Be open to new experiences and traveling new places. I went on a trip with one of my good buddies over December. We hit like 10 national/state parks down south. It really opened my eyes to one, how lucky we are to have this beautiful world to live on, but two, how much I have to learn from this world. Just traveling showed how things are different and the culture is different in different states. It showed me how many things you can do in this world and so much more. I learned so much from the week and a half trip. I did the hardest 12 mile hike I've ever done! ( the only 12 mile hike I have done.) I loved it and would do it again. I wasn't big on traveling before this trip just because I hadn't really done much like that. Now I want to travel all the time because it opens me to new learning experiences.
Don't be stubborn and think you are always right. It won't make you grow and it will piss the people you are with off, haha. Be open minded to grow and learn everyday. Be open minded to new experiences. Be open minded to grow. Be Open Minded!!!!
