Being well surrounded is indeed something truly valuable in life. If you are not yet convinced, read this guide.
FACT #1 PEOPLE THAT ARE CLOSED MINDED DO NOT MAKE GOOD COMPANY
- It is 4am and you want to go for this after-party but you actually work tomorrow ?
- You want to go on a trip without any plans.
- You want to try a new kinky stuff.
- You want to meet new people outside of your circle of friends.
- You start in a new business / want to set up a new project.
Everything that embodies true novelty or means going through a new path is a definite pain for them, with their state of mind any attempt to get out of the routine or extend the comfort zone will be doomed to failure (and they will actually judge you and try to make you pay for that). These people will restrain themselves and will bring you in their downward spiral.
FACT #2 : PEOPLE With OPEN MINDS ARE AWESOME
In which category would you put Da Vinci, Gandhi, Steve Jobs, David Bowie or Karl Lagerfeld ?
In which category would you put Donald Trump, , Donald Trump, Eric Zemmour ?
In an ideal world with whom would you prefer to spend an evening ?
FACT #3 : EVERYBODY SAY THAT THEY ARE OPEN-MINDED... ONLY PRACTICE MATTERS
For anyone born between 1980 to today, admitting to someone else that he or she is not open minded is a bats*** insane move, just for the social stigma and the reasons written above. So you understand that basically people always say that are they are open-minded, but being open is not to certfied by words, it has to be proved by acts.
"Are you open-minded ? "
"Oh yes, of course"
"What's the last crazy thing that you've done lately ? "
"I went to a concert of Demi Lovato / Tay Tay Swift, I drank a beer, it was AWESOME MAN "
When your life is similar to a routine or a patterned ritual, you cannot decently claim to be something out of the norm (nothing really wrong with that thaugh) and people that REALLY open despise the norm.
FACT #4 FIND OPEN-MINDED PEOPLE IN the CONVENTIONAL WAY CAN TAKE a LOT OF TIME.
Going to concerts / shops / bookstores / forums / clubs swingers takes commitment and time. You have to talk to people, see if you have common interests, exchange numbers, remember, see if these people are worth it.
If only there was a way to meet open-minded friends without the pain of doing it...
