“Early in life, you may have been led to believe that it’s not good to change your mind. There are numerous words with negative connotations associated with those who do change their minds: fickle, indecisive, hesitant, unsure, wavering, erratic, or wishy-washy. You’d much prefer to be known as steadfast, decisive, confident and sure…right?
Skilled manipulators used this near-universal conditioning against you every day. For example, has a salesman ever asked you, “Are you in a position to make a decision today?” Once you agree to this proposition, you’ll feel pressure to “make a decision today,” and buy the product, even if you have reservations. After all, if you don’t buy, you’d likely be considered “indecisive” by either the salesman or yo own self-doubting ego.
But this is not what changing your mind is all about. Changing your mind means that after thinking about the subject or after gathering more complete information, you came to a different conclusion – a better and more informed decision. This is not being indecisive. It’s being logical, prudent and wise.”
Edwin Harkness Spina, in “Mystic Secrets Revealed”
