Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote:
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius.
Mr. Eric Handler’s prompt:
What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?
[Let’s see…a million people….I would tell everyone to click on my ads….Wait, just kidding. . . Dear Google, I was only trying to be funny. . . It was a joke! Don’t banish me! Aaaaagggghhhh!]
The real message: Just because someone tells you it’s true, doesn’t mean it is. Be skeptical when you talk to people who are completely convinced, without any doubts, that they have the right answers—even if you agree with them. There is a lot more gray in this world than many are willing to admit.
Never lose your ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. You might find that your adversary has a good point, if you are willing to actually listen to what he or she is saying.
