Have you noticed something lately? Have you noticed these days that everyone has something to critique without actually knowing any of the facts?!
I’m sure you have! Over the years, this has slowly become my pet-peeve – popular opinion based on what people want to hear and believe rather than actual factual information.
This week, the internet did not disappoint – Joel Osteen was dragged up and down my timeline. Now normally, I’m here for a good drag, especially when I believe it has some merit. But this time?! This time, the slander against Joel Osteen’s character, in my humble opinion, was unfounded.
In this week’s brand new episode of Take A Shot! With Emem Joy Emah, I share my appall at people’s readiness to annihilate this man’s character without evidence. In addition, I share the lessons I’ve learned to apply to my own life.
This week, I challenge you to go against the grain. Rather than accept popular opinion; do the work, do the research, hear ALL sides of an issue. Do not jump hastily to conclusions. Make your opinion an informed one rather than an ill-informed one. This might cause you to be apart from the crowd but hey, you were born to stand out anyway!
Thanks for taking a shot with me!
