Diverse viewpoints

Those who are weak and insecure jump at every chance to take offense. Those who are strong and confident seize every opportunity to give love and create understanding.

Don’t waste your life seeking opportunities to be outraged. Fulfill your purpose by enacting positive solutions to troubling situations.

If you won’t even listen to a differing perspective, then your own perspective is not worth much. If you think the only way to win is to force your opinion on others, you’ve already lost.

Use your energy to build bridges, not fences. There’s much more to be gained by respecting those you disagree with than by shutting them out.

Attempting to prove you’re right mainly creates resentment. Instead, work to find common ground and discover how much more can be achieved with cooperation than with antagonism.

The world is filled with good people, each with a unique and worthy perspective. Make your own perspective even more valuable by respecting, understanding and positively connecting with the diverse viewpoints of others.
