When we search for answers, we commonly use methods that distinguish “right” from “wrong.” This helps qualify the pathways we follow and adds confidence to our decision making. What many of us don’t realize is that it also blinds us from seeing additional alternative pathways that may better suit our needs to achieving successful outcomes.
The concept of “Right” or “Wrong” makes life SIMPLER. It doesn’t, however, make life EASIER. What is right for one person is wrong for another.
We need to begin understanding the term “right” differently. We need to redefine it as:
“an individual decision that best suits the individual’s personality, needs and behavior that achieves the desired results.”
This definition better explains why multiple “right” answers exist and the potential benefits in accepting these various TRUTHS.
We are a stubborn society. We emphatically believe we know “right” from “wrong.”
Our inability to see beyond our own visual field, however, limits our ability to see the various “right” choices that truly exist.
What is the “right” answer to address disease?
What is the “right” answer to address long term weight loss?
If we continue to allow those in positions of power to limit our perspectives by only revealing that which they want us to see, we will never be able to discover the:
Multiple “right” answers that already exist.
Maybe it’s time to abandon this limited view to problem solving and begin viewing the ENTIRE PICTURE before us.
Rather than arguing whether this picture represents a DUCK or a RABBIT, why can’t we agree both answers offer legitimate “RIGHT” choices. When it comes to our health problems including our weight issues, we must be willing to look beyond doctors and diets as the only “right” sources to achieving results. We must be willing to view the ENTIRE PICTURE of potential options that ultimately may better align with our individual personalities and needs to achieve the “RIGHT” results desired.
The “RIGHT” option is the one you research and decide for yourself; not the one the advocate or professional imposes upon you!
