Eat Your Words. They’re Good for You.

“If you never change your mind, why have one?” Edward De Bono

It happens. You support a candidate and they turn out to be a crook. You wear a belief on your chest only to have it ripped away by undeniable evidence. Your big idea turns out to be not so big and pretty terrible.

You have two choices.

You can close your eyes, plant your feet, and stick your chest out, or you can do what you know you need to do: eat your words. The sooner you do, the faster you’ll grow. It’s okay to be wrong, but it’s stupid to stay wrong as a matter of principle.

Do you have some words you need to eat? Why not swallow them now and get on with it?
