So what does it take to admit you’re wrong? And how often do you do that?
As I look back on my life thus far, I notice an interesting scenario. I used to be NEVER wrong. And I could win every argument to justify why I was right. (Of course that may come from the fact that I am a great debater and think well on my feet.) Coincidentally, I was very insecure and had very low self-esteem.
A funny thing happened…
As I grew my self-esteem, I noticed that I sometimes was wrong. And had no trouble admitting to it, and apologizing when appropriate. What a coincidence!
Any lessons there for you?
