How To Overcome Close Mindedness To Make Money On The Internet

Jun 8, 2008
Being open-minded means that you're receptive to new ideas and willing to consider other perspectives to see if they hold any value. An interesting fact is, the more you can openly consider others' ideas, the faster you grow as a human being.

This all sounds very logical so why are we not all engaged in this practice? Perhaps we feel that we deal with people who are close minded, totally stubborn in their beliefs and unreceptive to new ideas? Well, don't we? So how can we handle this problem?

Yes, indeed this is a problem, however, it belongs mostly to you. You need to ask yourself why do I feel such resistance towards this type of person, or need to convince them or even have a strong need to be right when I'm around them?

As you look deeper, you'll begin to uncover the part of yourself that is resisting what the other person represents to you. Then you can consciously decide if you wish to hold onto that resistance or let it go. The more you resist, the more you will defend your position.

Resistance comes from our egos. When our egos take over our ideas, they treat everything personal, thus the attack begins. If you separate your ego from you ideas you'll feel no surge of defensiveness because there will not be any attachment.

There are four respectful words that have been given to the world by Dr. Wayne Dryer, "you could be right". These four words keep all of us open to hearing constructive criticism. And they can be used sincerely at anytime.

If you need to work with someone in your field on the Internet you will find some people like to bait others into an argument. By replying with these words you let them know you allow them their position, but you do not take ownership of it yourself.

Each time you deal with such a person, you will learn that resistance is always a lesson in disguise. And you will also learn how to overcome close mindedness to make money on the Internet.

The more you develop the ability to separate your ego and your ideas, the more open-minded you become in other areas also. You begin to compassionately accept people more, and judge them less because you are aware that you are not seeing the full picture.

There will always be those who choose to harm and hold no value for anyone, so be aware of your good intentions. For they prefer to keep their close mindedness over growth.
