WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT ADVICE TODAY. WHEN SHOULD WE TAKE ADVICE FROM SOMEONE ELSE? WHEN SHOULD WE LISTEN TO OURSELVES INSTEAD? WE ALL HAVE ISSUES, AND IT IS SOMETIMES AN EXCELLENT IDEA TO GET ADVICE FROM A FRIEND YOU TRUST, A FAMILY MEMBER WHO LOVES YOU, OR A COUNSELOR.
IT IS EASY TO SHRUG OFF THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OTHERS WHEN WE HAVE AN IMPORTANT DECISION TO MAKE. WHY? FIRST OF ALL, IF THE ADVICE THE OTHER PARTY GIVES, IS NOT THE CORRECT ADVICE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE DECISION. IT IS GOOD AND POSITIVE WHEN YOU HAVE ENOUGH “FAITH AND TRUST”, (READ THOSE WORDS AGAIN), “FAITH AND TRUST IN OURSELVES”. HOWEVER, SOMETIMES OUR EGO IS TOO BIG TO LISTEN TO SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS FAIR AND BALANCED, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE ADVICE THEY WOULD SHARE WITH US WOULD TRULY HELP US.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BECOME OVERLY CONFIDENT IN OURSELVES? THE ANSWER IS YES. THE POINT WHICH YOU CAN TRUST YOUR OWN INSTINCT AND INTUITION WHEN MAKING A DECISION IS WHEN WE FEEL COMFORTABLE AND SECURE WE HAVE ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE THE DECISION. LET’S PRETEND YOU POUR CONCRETE FOR A LIVING. THE TIME HAS COME TO INVEST IN THE COMPANIES 401K PROGRAM. YOU, HOWEVER DO NOT HAVDE THE KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE THIS KIND OF DECISION. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR PROFESSION AND YOU’VE NEVER TAKEN AN INTEREST IN STOCKS AND BONDS OR THE BROKERAGE ACCOUNTS THAT MANAGE THEM. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? SHOULD YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION? IS IT THE WISEST OPTION FOR YOU TO DO SO? THE ANSWER IS CLEAR HERE. IT IS NOT, AS YOU KNOW BASICALLY NOTHING TO BASE YOUR DECISION ON AND YOU’VE NEVER HAD AN INTEREST IN LEARNING ABOUT STOCKS AND BONDS. YOU PUT EGO AND PRIDE IN THE BACKSEAT, AND CALL THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY WHO IS HANDLING “YOUR COMPANIES” ACCOUNT, THIS IS FREE ADVICE, OR YOU TALK WITH A PARTY FROM PERHAPS YOUR BANK WHO IS KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT STOCKS AND BONDS.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE STUPID OR IGNORANT. IT ACTUALLY SHOWS YOU ARE SMART, AND HUMBLE. IT IS WISE, FOR EXAMPLE TO LISTEN TO A FINANCIAL ANALYST, BECAUSE OUR MONEY WILL BE INVESTED IN THE BEST ACCOUNTS FOR OUR OWN BENEFIT AND FINANCIAL SITUATION. WE HAVE EXERCISED WISDOM INSTEAD OF IGNORANCE. LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF ADVICE IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY: 1. GUIDANCE OR RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING PRUDENT FUTURE ACTION, TYPICALLY GIVEN BY SOMEONE REGARDED AS KNOWLEDGEABLE OR AUTHORITATIVE. 2. INFORMATION; NEWS. DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION OF ADVICE-SMART AND EDUCATED WISDOM GIVEN WHEN ASKED BY ANOTHER FOR AN OPINION ON SOMETHING WE ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE WITH.
SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO ASK FOR ADVICE FROM ANOTHER. FOR EXAMPLE, YOU ARE A NEW MOTHER. YOUR BABY HAS BEEN CRYING DAY AND NIGHT. YOUR MOTHER-IN -LAW SHOWS UP TO SEE HER GRANDSON. SHE IS CONCERNED BECAUSE SHE NOTICES HE FEELS WARM TO HER TOUCH. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD HAVE NOTICED, BUT HAVE BEEN RATTLED BY ALL THE NOISE OF YOUR BABY CRYING. YOU’RE A NEW MOTHER, EXPERIENCING A SITUATION LIKE THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME. AS MUCH AS YOU HATE LOOKING LIKE THE NEW MOTHER YOU ARE TO YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW, YOU PROBABLY, FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CHILD LISTEN TO HER. AFTERALL, SHE HAS RAISED FOUR CHILDREN ON HER OWN! I DIDN’T SAY IT WAS ALWAYS EASY TAKING ANOTHER PARTIES ADVICE. MY POINT IS IN THE END, YOU WIN. YOUR CHILD MAY BE SICK, NEEDING AN ANTIBIOTIC. YOUR MOTHER- IN-LAW IS HAPPY TO TAKE HER NEW LITTLE GRANDSON TO THE PEDIATRICIAN AND THE BEST PART OF THIS IS YOU GET A BREAK FROM A SITUATION THAT IS OVERWHELMING YOU AND A CHANCE TO CATCH A SHOWER AND NAP.
WISDOM AND LAYING YOUR PRIDE ASIDE FOR HUMILITY IS WHAT LETS YOU KNOW YOU ARE GROWING AS AN INDIVIDUAL. YOU ARE MAKING THE SMART CHOICE RATHER THAN THE WRONG ONE. “YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEST ABOUT SUBJECTS NEW TO YOU, OR HAVEN’T INTERESTED YOU IN THE PAST”. BE PROUD OF YOURSELF. IN THE END, IT IS YOU THAT WINS. HAS THERE BEEN A POINT IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU HAVE HAD TO TAKE ADVICE FROM A PERSON WHO DID HAVE A BIG EGO AND WAS OVERLY PROUD OF THE KNOWLEDGE THEY HAD?
