Never Wrong

I have been encouraged to be an expert in all things. I often think I should know everything. I shouldn’t admit ignorance. That backing down is weakness. If I’m not first, I’m first loser.  

This creates some problems for me. I can’t admit to ignorance. I can’t learn anything new. I can’t listen to, or weigh the value of opinions other than my own, (unless they support my own). I have no flexibility. I live in fear of being proven wrong. 

Another option could be to acknowledge admitting to my ignorance is the strength I need. What would I really give up if I made that change? Who might model I could learn from? 

Success! You're on the list.
