We love listening to ourselves talk. Even if we tell other people how much we don’t like our voice, most of us want to take the spotlight when it comes to conversations.
“I could speak better than that.“
But is it always about speaking better?
In reality, it’s not just about our voice that we want to hear; we want to hear our thoughts. And often than not, we think that our own thoughts are superior to others.
Suppose you find yourself zoning out whenever someone speaks about a topic. One reason could be that you think your ideas are superior to theirs. If that is the case, then you may be giving yourself too much importance. And do you know what comes after that? Your ruin.
Pride leads to destruction;
a proud attitude brings ruin.
Proverbs 16:18 NCV
Only when you acknowledge that people speak differently because they think differently will you begin to learn ideas you’d never think of alone. If they are good ideas, then keep them. If not, then you need to throw them away. This is, in a way, a learning process. And do you know what happens when you keep on learning? You grow.
Let’s keep growing for the better.
