Someone has the answer: The question is do you want it?

Group of people talkingOr would you rather keep searching yourself?

It’s tempting to say “Of course we want the answer if someone else has it”?

But do we really?

Sometimes the loss of face, the embarrassment, or the hurt to our ego is too much to bear, and we avoid seeing what’s offered.

Of course it’s good to look for our own answers.

Sometimes though…

We’ll get a better outcome if we put our pride to one side and accept someone else’s wisdom.

That’s a kind of personal mastery, and an act of an inspirational leader.
