We are drawn towards people that have the same points of view as us.
They make us feel comfortable.
They make us feel safe.
Our worldviews, our belief systems, our values are held intact.
However, they don’t make us grow.
They simply validate our existing cocoon of beliefs.
If you truly want to grow, surround yourself with people who are totally unlike you, looking at whom you feel, “Iske saath toh hangout nahi ho paayega bhai. Yeh kaise ghus gaye?”
Those are the people you must spend your time with.
The next time you see someone and your response is, “They’re not my type,” ask yourself, “What is it that they know that I don’t?”
And then spend your time knowing them.
You’ll know more about the world than you did before.
