Keeping an Open Mind

I think at some point we all probably feel a little challenged by the views of friends and family, we all see the world so differently and even those of us raised in the same household can have extremely different viewpoints in life. I realize that this can sometimes become frustrating but you have to first realize that you have no control over their thoughts or responses. However, the good news is that you can always change your own perspectives and keep an open mind in understanding the views of others.


Our open mind will not only allow us to be closer to those we love but it’s bigger than that. It can also allow us to grow in other ways.


Once you realize that an open mind isn’t ripping away your own perspective but growing it, you will begin to see the world so much differently. The goal is only to ensure that your perspective is open to all possibilities that can possibly bring countless good things your way – a whole new world of thoughts, experiences, and adventures. If you can train yourself to keep an open mind, you’ll find that new opportunities in your life open up as well.


When you open your mind you can gain new experiences, although your instincts may guide you to stick to the familiar, why not try something new instead. You never know what kind of possibilities will present themselves when you open your mind and try to learn something new, like walking in someone else’s shoes.

If you open your mind to expect the best, you’ll find that you often receive it. When you open your mind, you’ll see your best results happen when you have great expectations as well. Even though it might be difficult at first to incorporate new ideas into your life, persistence has its rewards.


When you open your mind to others’ perspectives, you get to truly know them. People like it when you take an honest interest in them! Discover the joys of having meaningful conversations instead of shallow chit-chat because you don’t always agree, listen to understand what their perspective is. You actually may learn something new.

Life becomes more exciting when you cultivate an open and accepting mind. Instead of the same old routine’s day after day, opening your mind will enable you to embrace life. When you can suspend your judgment of new ideas, each day can bring you something new.

I believe that by opening up your mind and considering all your options you will open your world up to so much more. Over the years, you may have become quite set in your ways. You found what you like and you’re sticking to it. But is this interfering with the flow of joy into your life?


Here’s a few affirmations for opening your mind up to new things:

I will keep my mind open to the idea that something great could come my way. I will no longer limit my thoughts to only things that make me comfortable. I am focused on seeing things from a new perspective of understanding. I will no longer allow fear to hold me in place from learning and listening. I will step into this week with an open mind for all things new.
