LETTING GO OF THE OLD TAPES IN OUR HEADS"
June is here and summer has begun but before we all head out on vacations I wanted to share with you a quote I came across while reading some of the latest graduation speeches. This quote was said urging the graduates to broaden their horizons and not get caught up with ONLY being "right"; to hear what is really said and respect others' opinions.
"WE CLING TO OUR OWN POINT OF VIEW,
AS THOUGH EVERYTHING DEPENDED UPON IT.
YET OUR OPINIONS HAVE NO PERMANENCE;
LIKE AUTUMN AND WINTER,
THEY GRADUALLY PASS AWAY."
I wondered, how do some get so stuck in this mode. Why must they always want to cling to their opinions and be so very unwilling to hear the other story? Is it through the fear of change or could it be through the fear of the unknown? Is staying where they are in their thoughts and opinions so familiar to them that it just feels safer? What risk does one have to take to remove this "clinging to our own point of view?"
Here are my thoughts. TIPS if you find yourself in this position:
- Stop to listen to others...really listen.
- Don't judge them before, during or even after they have spoken.
- Don't interrupt. You might find you agree with some but not quite all of them. That's OK. It's OK to disagree!
- Take a minute to notice if any hot buttons were triggered within your body. Did anything shift, move, twitch?
- Why? Write down on a piece of paper or in your journal, "What did that opinion MEAN to me?" Not what did it say, but what was it that caused you to jump and irritate you?
- REFLECT. Then read it again and reflect on what you wrote.
- And lastly, how could you have heard it differently?
- What was your assumption, right or wrong?
- And more importantly, what would you need to change in yourself?
Food for thought...
