In order to be open minded, you will need to go against traditions, especially those from your upbringing. You will have to escape the comfort of your comfort zone and step out and learn new ways on how you can become the new and improved you.
Highly successful people are not only open minded, but are great problem solvers. They are able to evolve from old principles and are able to get on a shared journey building and working with others. Open minded people are also able to keep themselves in a favored position.
In the end, you will learn a lot when your mind is open to receive.
