Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Letting Go Of “Being Right” When You Care
When you care about something or someone, letting go of “being right” is one of the biggest things you’ll face over and over again as you pursue inner growth and work towards inspiring your highest potential.
The beauty of an inner growth mindset and the pursuit of “higher heights” with the potential you know you are, is that thanks to your inner focus and learning predisposition, you will uncover lots about you and the different ways you can let go of “being right” in the moment. This practice is what will help you stay at your best in the situation you are facing or help you be of even greater support to the person or people you are helping.
Here are some ways to let go of “being right” when you care.
- Every time you notice yourself arguing with someone to “be right”, take a step back and ask yourself how this is exactly helping you express the best of you or bring positivity to the situation. Next, decide on what you’re going to do (in the moment) to move forward in a way that is effective and open to learning and listening.
- Make a list of five ways someone has tried to “be right” because they care about you and next to each write how you felt about the situation and what the person was doing. Next, think of the times you’ve done the exact same thing to someone else. Keep this in mind every time you notice yourself trying to “be right” in that same way and decide to take a different approach that doesn’t involve “being right”.
- Once a year take a look at all the times you were able to let go of “being right” and write about one thing that helped you do this (let go) and about what you learned about yourself in each situation.
