“The fact of the matter, is that it’s just my opinion.” Benjamin Franklin
Have you ever caught yourself saying, “Well the fact of the matter is…”?
Sometimes we can be so sure of something, that we forget that it’s actually not a fact. And that it’s truthfully just our opinion.
We are a proud, dedicated group. With strong, passionate beliefs. That is an amazing quality, and on the character level, one we do want to cultivate. Yet, there is a tipping point here.
We can hold such strong thoughts about something, that we can literally blind ourselves to another perspective. Another way of doing things. To continue to grow into the next best version of ourselves, Franklin’s quote brings us back to a core focus of ours, humility. To always have an open mind, and to always be a student.
