Keeping an Open Mind to Opportunities

Talking to some people can be really exasperating. When one explains a sure-win strategy to make money to them with absolutely zero risk and no commission earned whatsoever, they will first ask, sure or not. They will then close their minds and the idea is dismissed. To be fair, i agree that when things are too good to be true, they probably are, BUT , i still stick to the philosophy that NOTHING OR NO IDEA should be dismissed without exploring or investigating first. Taking a phrase from the bible( Dont mistake me for a holy cow cos i am definitely not, neither am i evangelising, its just something which has been sticking in my head recently, dont know why....)
" A farmer went to sow his seed, some fell along the path;it was trampled on and the birds ate it up. Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seeds fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown." - Luke 8, verse 5-8

There is no objective or this article, really. Just thinking about the opportunities that one finds in their everyday life which one should really listen to and keep an open mind. Think about the trading courses from T3B or Mirriam, hmm, honestly, do they work? Maybe they do, maybe not? Maybe its just a situation where good ideas were sowed but but it fell on rocks where some people do not take action, maybe, rules were not followed and the "birds ate them up"...hmm.


  1. Actually I kind of think that having a closed mind is a defensive mechanism set up by our brain to prevent information overload. It's a shortcut to making fast decisions. Imagine without this mechanism (some pple really have no such mechanism), we would have to seriously evaluate through all the bullshit that surrounds us. Really a chore.

    I'll say keeping an open mind really depends on experience. When time is precious, keeping a closed mind is really not such a bad idea :) Not to say i'm close minded (of cos I'm not, haha!) but to present another viewpoint.

    Hmm, come to think of it, this is a step-on-your-own-feet kind of post. If someone prefers to be close minded for whatever reasons, are you open minded enough to accept it?

    Just screwing your mind :)

  2. I really admire this, I mean it really looks interesting!
