Episode 44 highlights the importance of being openminded and dives deep into the benefits of this critical thinking skill along with some ways to improve yours. The reason for me talking about this subject is because of the level of censorship that is taking place in this country today. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, censorship is a problem for everyone. Just because your side isn’t being silenced and censored right now doesn’t mean it won’t be tomorrow.

So the goal of this episode is to show you the importance of having an open mind and how practicing personal development helps you to do this.

Being openminded opens doors for you. Doors of new ideas, new perspectives and new voices. It allows you to be less judgmental of others and situations. The definition of openminded is it means one is willing to consider new ideas, be unprejudiced, unbiased. It means one has a willingness to search actively for evidence against one’s favored beliefs, plans or goals and to weigh such evidence fairly when it is available. Make sure to keep that definition in mind not only while listening to this podcast but also as you go throughout your day.

“If you don’t go through life with an open mind you will find a lot of closed doors.”

— Mark W Perrett

We will talk about :

  • The problem of censorship
  • The different doors that being openminded opens up for you
  • How when you are openminded you are not driven by the burden of fear
  • A few more benefits of being openminded
  • A few ways for you to improve your open-mindedness

 

Being openminded has really made a difference for me in most aspects of my life. This has been especially true when meeting new people and in every job that I have ever had. It definitely adds to my happiness in life because I recognize the benefits of listening to many different voices and points of view. Never be afraid of growing and expanding your own point of view and resist the need to silence others who disagree with you.
