Fight Like You’re Right. Listen Like You’re Wrong

Fight Like You’re Right

  • Martin Luther King
  • Winston Churchill
  • Oskar Schindler
  • Harriet Tubman
  • William Wilberforce
  • Martin Luther
  • George Washington and the Founding Fathers

What if we never knew these names because they never fought for what they thought was right?

Fighting for what you believe in is an essential part of being human. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." When we don't express what's inside, we begin the process of devaluing ourselves, and that’s not healthy.

Listen Like You’re Wrong

Fighting like you’re right, however, must be counterbalanced by humility and a willingness to sincerely hear out the other side. We can accomplish this when we listen like we’re wrong.

Listening like you’re wrong…

  • Demonstrates the value you place on the relationship
  • Gets the virtue of humility working in you
  • Provides the opportunity for you to rethink your thinking  

Don’t be afraid to fight for what you believe in. And, at the same time, be humble enough to listen with an open mind.
