One of the biggest mistakes we make is assuming everyone thinks like us or sees the world in the same way we do. This may sound obvious but this disconnect is often at the root of much of conflict and intolerance in the world.
The more you travel to different countries or read about different cultures and time periods, the more you realize that your way of thinking is just one of many. There are many assumptions about good and bad that are not universally held. That's the reason we have wars– because one person's idea of good is someone else's idea of bad.
For most of us, the belief systems we use to navigate our world are based on our culture, gender, economic group, assumptions, and time period into which we were born. But here's the kicker: most of these things are completely out of our control. We do not choose them, at least not initially.
This is great news! It means that we are not stuck with any particular set of beliefs or assumptions about the world. It means we can change them if we wish, and by doing so, change how we interact with others and the world. It also means we can work to understand other people's belief systems to cultivate more harmonious relationships.
