For me this quote is about opening up your mind to accept different perspectives, but also being confident in your own. There will always be people with different opinions than you, but there’s not always a right or wrong answer. Be open to thinking in a different way and allowing your opinion to change, but also be confident in what you believe. Don’t take someone else’s opinion as fact just because of their position.
Game Plan: When you read something in a book or someone tells you something about the world or yourself, think critically about where it’s coming from and whether it aligns with what you believe. Critical thinking isn’t about being argumentative or critical of other people, but challenging ideas to improve the world and form our own beliefs.
