Right

right

Do you feel the need to be right in a conversation?

 

Most people do feel that need.

 

Why do we need to be right when we talk with others?

 

We don’t listen to learn and understand. We only wait for our moment to reply.

 

“Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.”

Stephen Covey

 

When you choose to be right, you choose your ego instead of building your relation with that person.

 

“You can be right or you can be happy.”

Gerald Jampolsky

 

Before you do your best to be right, think a little more about that bad habit. Are you sure that what you’ll say will help in anyway. If so, find a way to say it without attacking and hurting.

About Serge ‘Mage’ Cote Why do I write? I believe in the butterfly effect. As small my influence may be on the planet, it is still influence. I want to orient it for better. I write my book with the idea of bringing something good into this world. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke I want my books to be a good place to be. A place that you visit often and feel good about it. I want my books to bring good energy, so the readers will take action to make this world a better place. I want my books to guide those who don’t know why they feel so bad about their life. I want my books to be there after I’ll be gone. I want people to come back to them and use them in a positive way. “The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.” – William James
