On “Being Right.” Ryan says:
“It’s very difficult to have a strong relationship and be right. We have a strong relationship with our opinion and we want to be so RIGHT but this will cause us to lose relationships.
So you’re smart, so you’re a great debater – and now you’ve pushed away all the people you love.
Part of sitting down with people and building bridges is laying down our RIGHTNESS. Our RIGHTNESS can block us from building better relationships.”
If all we are doing is focusing on being right then we will not be good listeners or good friend – we won’t build bridges or be vulnerable. You can’t be vulnerable while focusing on being right.
