Some Good Advice on Good Advice

Think carefully about what advice you adhere to.

Realise advice is only generated from one person and conveyed in a way that aligns with their interests.

Advice from a parent may be their lost dreams disguised as good advice.

What is good advice and what is bad advice? That’s for you to decide.

How many pieces of advice have you accumulated over the years and are still holding onto without reason? What is still relevant?

You’ve grown, you’ve changed, you’re capable of creating your own path in life.

I’m sure all of the advice you’ve received has been in good nature but realise it’s always from the other person’s point of view. It is based on their perspectives and their experiences.

The same is true with the advice you give. The advice you give someone else will always be biased towards your perspective, your virtues and your experiences.

When someone doesn’t take your advice, don’t be offended. They’re simply defining their own journey.

So instead of taking someone else’s advice as gospel, take the time to remember that their advice is theirs, not yours.

Treat it like an experiment. If you feel someone has given you good advice, trial it for a couple of weeks.

If after this time you feel it doesn’t suit, move on.
