If you occasionally feel challenged by the views of friends and family, you know how frustrating it can feel to realize that you have no control over their thoughts or responses. The good news is that you can always change your own perspectives.

Developing a Sense of Open-Mindedness

If you can train yourself to keep an open mind, you will find that new opportunities in your life open up. Ensuring that your perspective is open to ALL possibilities will bring a multitude of good things your way – a whole new world of thoughts, experiences, and adventures.

There are many advantages to developing open-mindedness:

 

1. Gain new experiences.

Although your instincts may guide you to stick to the familiar, why not try something new instead? Adaptation is one of the hallmarks of humanity. You never know what kind of possibilities will present themselves when you open your mind and try something new, like walking in someone else’s shoes.

2. Expect the best and you will often receive it.

When you open your mind, you will see your best results when you have great expectations as well. Even though it might be difficult, initially, to incorporate new ideas into your life, persistence has its rewards.

  • Keep your mind open to the idea that something great could come your way, just because you kept at something that was difficult.

3. Meet more people and make new friends.

When you open your mind to others’ perspectives, you get to truly know them. People love it when you take an honest interest in them!! Discover the joys of having meaningful conversations instead of superficial chit-chat.

  • We have all met people who don’t seem particularly interested in making our acquaintance, or in getting to know anyone else. Maybe you are like this sometimes. Do you see yourself as too busy to take the time to truly get to know people?

4. Bring more adventure into your life.

Life becomes more exciting when you cultivate an open and accepting mind. Instead of the same old routine day after day, opening your mind will enable you to embrace life fully and “go for the gold.” When you can suspend your judgment of new ideas, each day can bring you a new adventure.

  • Opening your mind and considering all your options makes the world a pretty fascinating place. New sights, sounds, thrills, and even spills can lead you to discover new passions in life that re-invigorate you like nothing ever has before!!

Over the years, you may have become quite set in your ways. You found what you like, and you are sticking to it. But is this interfering with the flow of joy into your life?

Maybe you limit the scope of activities and the people you hang out with. If you make an effort to open your mind to the advantages of meeting new people and trying new things, you reintroduce the unknown into your life. While this can feel a little nerve-racking at first, it certainly gives you more options! Make the most of your life by working on open-mindedness today.
