You need to have an open mind in today's world. You want to remain curious about things that may catch your attention, however do not be quick to judge others based on false assumptions.
People see the world in different ways, and I guess you do not have to accept their beliefs, but you need to respect them. Politics, finances, religion or WHATEVER it is. Face the facts that we are not all the same.
When you accept that fact that you cannot change everything going on around you... you will find you can change yourself. Be your own inspiration and motivation. Wonder about things, keep an open mind and realize that although people may see things differently, its okay.
Don't be afraid or ashamed of what sparks your curiosity, it's you.
