When people are closed minded they close themselves off from life, from progress and ultimately from the very knowledge that will help them to grow into a better person. Not only will you become more productive with an open mind, but you will also give yourself the opportunity to experience success.
When your mind is open and available to the frequency of possibilities you enhance your character and increase your mindset. It's like sitting in the school of the universe like an open vessel prepared to embrace the almighty unknown.
Open your mind, let the ego go, allow life to fuel you with emotional and mental intelligence!
