Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself; this was a famous quote from the famous “Roman” philosopher, politician, lawyer, orator, and so many other titles he held back in his times. What is fascinating today is that this mindset still prevails all you have to do is to be still and listen to your counseling.
The reality with this outlook is that when you have a real person to look and feed back your thoughts it makes it easier to heed your advice. Why can’t we just listen to our advice? We give out the most sincere advice, but we rarely take it ourselves. We happen to think far too often that we are immune to advice, and maybe we do not want to except that fact that we need it as well. Our advice is the advice we have to take, and the most valuable.
When you can look in the mirror and ask yourself what to do in any given situation, you are on your way to discovery and personal development. Once you begin to realize that the advice you give out to others should be what you would use yourself. Our advice might be the hardest pill to swallow, but at the end of the day you know what will work best for you, even thought you might find it difficult to take to heart.
Why is it that even the misers among us will be generous with one thing, and that is their advice. People love to give advice. What you have to do is to have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you ever. The question being what advice would give you? The takeaway is a meaning that people put a lot of weight on, the information they receive from other people, but they often forget to ask themselves for advice.
Advice is cheap, so it’s not surprising that people dispense it left and right. When you go about asking yourself for help, it will work well with your self-honesty approach. Being honest with yourself is one of the keys to becoming more productive in so many ways. Asking yourself for advice goes one step further than self-honesty.
When you open yourself up and give yourself advice this is what can happen:
You become accountable for what you need to change.
The chance to feel more productive happens when you are open to changes.
Happier and more confident, because you have control over the changes
When you are heard you gain confidence
You are more likely to follow your advice because it resonates from within
Practice, practice, practice, you have the answers within, and all you have to do is listen. Find yourself a great coach and have your insights fed back to you for the best means of productivity that works for your lifestyle, dreams, and goals. Begin!
Until the next time take good care, be and stay well.
