When is the last time you said, “They were wrong!”? When is the last time you knew someone was giving you bad information? Today’s Daily Quote made me chuckle. It’s from the American engineer and inventor, Elisha Gray. He was born on August 2, 1835. He said the following:
As to Bell’s talking telegraph, it only creates interest in scientific circles…its commercial value will be limited.
He couldn’t have been more wrong! However, I am sure he really did believe that was true. For today, let’s look at the people in our lives. Were people saying or thinking something about you and they were wrong? Did someone give you bad information? Was it on purpose? Remember, like Elisha Gray, sometimes people really do believe what they are telling you is true when you can see clearly that it is not. Sometimes, on the other hand, people just flat out lie or are misinformed.
So many times when someone is wrong, we want to correct them. We want to tell them where they are wrong and give them the right information. We want them to learn from their mistake. If someone has the wrong idea of who or what we are, we have this need to go set them straight. Let’s work on letting all that go today. I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of important stuff on my To Do list. I don’t really have time to dwell on whether they were wrong or right or just flat-out crazy.
Join in me doing the shoulder shrug, it doesn’t matter thing today. It doesn’t matter if someone is right or wrong today. Try that on for size. See how it feels as you wear it around during the day.
