Tuesday, September 3

We hear a lot about our online bubbles on social media in the news these days. These platforms are set up to deliver information they think you want to see. But the problem is we never get exposed to other ideas and the other side of certain arguments. And this can lead to a very narrow window to view the world through. But it’s not just online, we can easily fall into our bubble in the real world too. I know I have to constantly remind myself that not everyone is into fitness and nutrition the way you all at the gym are.

The video below from Jason Khalipa discusses how we can learn something from everyone. He points out that feedback can sometimes be off putting, but if we really take the time to listen, we may find real value in it.

As he says, we tend not to engage. And when we don’t really listen or move into a deeper conversation, we never get to learn what that person truly has to offer.

Hopefully we can all be open to learning from those around us, and hopefully we’re meeting new people are really listening to what they have to say. Great information and feedback doesn’t always have to come from some authority figure, so be open to what people are telling you and use it to your advantage.
