Motivational Monday - Would You Rather Have a Piece of the Pie…
…or the Recipe?
Having an ‘old soul’ and old fashioned values, I feel that as I age, the changing world around us seems to be changing at an incredibly rapid pace - more so than ever before. No, my old soul and values are not in conflict or lagging behind - at all - but, I do notice that fewer people share my mindset on a lot of topics. I do more listening and when I sense that the other party in the conversation is not receptive to a different opinion, no response is really needed. Hey, different opinions make us think though - right?
Debating issues makes us think things through, dig a little deeper into topics. Hearing both sides allows us to create a more informed opinion.
You've probably noticed this more in the political realm. However, this extends well beyond politics - it’s in every facet of our lives. People simply aren’t as worried about standing by their beliefs or convictions, as they are about being right and being on the winning side of the controversy.
...And I'm okay with that!
Standing true to our convictions and understanding the ‘why’ in any situation, requires more effort on our part. The constant hustle-bustle in our lives has become the norm for nearly all of us. We simply don’t have time or don’t want to take the time to figure out the whys; we prefer taking the piece of pie and moving on. We have disengaged from research and taken to instant acceptance. Are you good with that? Am I being too old fashioned?
As our grandparents used to say, there are two sides to every story. I feel it is our mission to investigate both sides - no matter how busy our lives may be. Likely, what we find to be the truth will lie somewhere between the two sides…but, at least we’ve done the research. We’ve found out what the ingredients are in the pie rather than simply taken a slice and moved on.
As they say, trust but, verify!
Happy Motivational Monday Everyone!
