Without an open mind, you can never be a great success. (Paraphrase of Martha Stewart, businesswoman)
When we’ve made up our minds about something, many of us are so determined that we can’t—or won’t—accept anybody else’s suggestions. We’re so sure we’re right that we plunge ahead even against the advice of friends and colleagues. Suppose Thomas Edison had refused to learn from others. None of us knows it all, so let’s open our minds to helpful counsel.
Plans succeed through good counsel. The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong. (Proverbs 20:18; 37:30)
