I like to find the middle ground.
In most cases I’m unwilling to take extreme positions.
I’m turned off by people who can only see it one way – who are unwilling to see the other point of view.
Comments, likes, and views are the new popularity contest. You are rewarded for being extreme, flamboyant and loud.
I’m not saying that I won’t take tough positions in life or live on the edge. I’ve just noticed that I rarely agree with radical or dogmatic views.
I like to think outside the box and look for new and better ways of doing things. But I also like to find common ground and solutions.
The media we consume often shows us the worst in humanity – constant division, controversy, conspiracy, hatred and anger.
Let’s focus on where we can agree and build from our common ground.
There’s stability in avoiding the extremes.
Taking the middle ground approach works in all aspects of life:
In personal finance.
You gain empathy for others by trying to see their perspective.
You make better decisions when you open your mind to new ideas.
You feel better inside when you seek peace not war.
You can live a happier and more fulfilling life when you find the middle ground.
