We all struggle to admit fault. It’s easier to defend ourselves, talk more than listen, or find flaws in the messenger to dismiss the message. These habits build walls between ourselves and others and leave us estranged and disconnected.
We don’t always have to be right. We don’t need to be the star that shines the brightest. Letting Go of the Need to Be Right is an invitation to recognize issues that impede personal growth and hinder relationships. Learn to
- pursue what is right, not who is right.
- be mindful of your motives and avoid the traps of power.
- create a culture of creativity and collaboration.
- celebrate your team rather than steal the spotlight.
Jesus calls us to be lifelong learners and servants. When you change your view of success, the pressure to know it all, have it all, and be it all lose their power over you. You are then free to let go of the need to be right and fulfill your calling in God.
