A Master is never defensive

A master is never defensive. Instead, a master actually likes the learning that comes from being challenged and it’s actually an enjoyable, educational process. See, mastery means turning down the defensiveness that comes naturally to all of us. Defensiveness looks like when someone challenges us, trying to take the stand of being right. But we can be happy, or we can be right. We can’t be both. So, the next time someone challenges you, it’s a great opportunity for you to learn through humility by saying, “Tell me more about that, I want to understand.” As opposed to taking the stand that you’re right.

    This is a great lesson! It can be a difficult for everyone at times, but it can come easier with practice.
    I have actually been working on this in my life. Through practice I can now notice when I’m becoming defensive. So now I have a chance to correct the action and learn. Thank you!
