Most people are not successful. And most of these same people are unsuccessful, in large part, because they hold on to a belief and refuse to surrender their belief, no matter what you say, no matter how many facts you have and no matter how convincing you may be. This rigid embrace of doctrine results in closed-mindedness. Being closed-minded inhibits growth, learning and intellectual evolution. It causes you to become “stuck” in life, limiting your ability to succeed.
The most successful people are the most open-minded types of people who refuse to walk lock-step in any ideology. 86% of millionaires in my study were dedicated to the open-minded pursuit of new ideas, facts and opinions of others. This open-mindedness enabled them learn, grow and evolve.
Ideology hampers success. An open-mind contributes to success. If you want to succeed you must have an open mind. That’s how you grow into the person you need to be in order for success to visit you.
