One’s perception of the world is a reflection of one’s beliefs. What a person believes to be true is sometimes discovered not to be.

Harboring the belief “I could be wrong” is not only the sign of an open mind, it’s far more conducive to triggering personal growth than “I’m right.” or “This is the one and only way.”

Rather than close the door to additional information, it keeps one’s mind open to additional knowledge and experiences that could impact one’s belief system.

One’s mind is rarely receptive to things it thinks it already knows the answer to.

“I could be wrong” is far more beneficial to one’s belief system than “I’m absolutely right without question.”

Remaining open to new information, new experiences, and new beliefs is essential to personal growth.

You don’t grow in response to what you already know.

The moment you are certain that you know the one and only way is the moment you leave no room to learn that you’re wrong (even if you’re right).

Keep an open mind.

“It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.” — Claude Bernard
