This is Dr. Fab Mancini and in this show I want to talk to you about being open minded. Sometimes we get stuck on things and that becomes our way of life and we are not open minded enough. In this show, I wanted to show you how open mindedness is really what opens up the world to you to achieve your destiny, to achieve your potential, and there were three things that I’ve discovered over the time that allows me to have an open mind. Are you ready for that?
1. Listen before you react.
2. Experience new things.
3. Surround yourself with different types of people.
I recently had an experience in which I was in this wonderful steakhouse, a Brazilian steakhouse, and they were bringing…
I don’t know if you’re familiar with this, but they were bringing the beef and the different cuts and they give you a parade and you have to turn the thing from red to green, and when it’s green they’re going to come in.
When it’s red, they’re going to stop.
Mine was green and I usually don’t eat a lot of red meat throughout the week or the month, but in this time, I was really loving it.
If I’m going to eat some meat, I’m going to have the best quality of meat that I can possibly have.
For all my life, I’ll always have beef well done.
I don’t know.
Don’t ask me why.
It’s something that I’ve always done, but then, every time I go to these fancy restaurants, the chefs a lot of times come out and tell me, “Dr. Mancini, are you sure you want that Kobe beef well done? Don’t you realize that’s one of the best meats in the world?”
I always have said yes, until recently.
This is Dr. Fab Mancini and in this show I want to talk to you about being open minded.
For the first time in my life when it came to my beef, I was open minded and guess what I said – “All right. I’ll take it medium.”
You know what?
I loved it.
It was so much tastier.
It was less crunchier and everything that everybody’s told me about, I was able to enjoy it.
But sometimes we get stuck on things and that becomes our way of life and we are not open minded enough.
In this show, I wanted to show you how open mindedness is really what opens up the world to you to achieve your destiny, to achieve your potential, and there were three things that I’ve discovered over the time that allows me to have an open mind.
Are you ready for that?
The first one is listen before you react.
Most of us, when we’re presented with a new idea, with a new opportunity, with a new experience, we typically react to it the same way we’ve done it in the past.
I want you to stop.
Take a deep breath, and out, and I want you to listen why you should do that.
Listen to somebody else’s experience.
Find out what is it that they’re thinking or what they’re hoping for that maybe will keep you to have a better experience.
That way you can be more open minded.
The second thing is that I want you to give yourself permission to experience new things.
You have to experience new things, because you know what?
Being open minded means that you want to explore everything that life has to offer out there, and of course, if you’re afraid of jumping out of a plane, maybe give yourself permission to jump out of a plane.
Make sure that you do it safely, but do something like that.
If it’s to try a new food, right?
Sometimes, when we get invited.
For so many years, I say no to sushi until one of my best friends said, “It’s my favorite restaurant. Would you give me an opportunity to show you how sushi tastes?”
And I love it now.
Give yourself permission to experience.
In fact, I want you to tell me right now in the comments, what is one experience you haven’t given yourself permission, that you’re now going to reconsider.
I want to know what that is.
Lastly, the third thing on how to have open mindedness is that I want you to surround yourself with different types of people.
Our network of people, pretty much determines who we are, and then sometimes, if you’re a vegetarian, you surround yourself with vegetarian.
If you’re a business person, you surround yourself with business people.
If you’re an artist, you surround yourself with artists.
I want you to be open minded and change some of those people with a whole different type of people so that way they can show you different experiences.
Keep an open mind about not only the people, but the experiences that you can have in life.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this episode.
I know right now that you’re going to be more open minded and please put right now on the comments below how you plan to be open minded and don’t forget to like it.
I want to make sure that I stay connected with you through this Dr. Fab Show.
