"You want to be right? Or do you want to be rich?"

I was pissed...I was fuming...I wanted to fight..I like to fight....and I don't mean fight like battles with words. I wanted to physically fight.  I'm an intense person. If you mess with my family or money, getting physical often crosses my mind....but in the grand scheme of things I have a lot to lose and remembering that slows me down most of the time. Thank God. 
In the interest of keeping what I've acquired, I bit my tongue and counseled with one of my mentors. After letting me vent he simply asked me one question and it literally shifted my paradigm on a lot of things.
Do you want to be right? or you want to be rich?
I stopped right in my tracks. Of course I wanted to be right. Everyone wants to be right. I was right. I knew I was right, he knew I was right! We were in agreement that I was right...
Then he went to explain "Everyone wants to be right...sometimes even if you are right you can let others win...let others save face...if it goes to the greater good."…
