How often, when you have a big decision to make, do you ask others for their advice?
How do you decide whom to ask?
Here's my advice, if you care: stop asking so much for advice
In a recent mental edge session with a client we were discussing her desires-- a dream she's had to follow a passion. She asked the advice of someone close to her and she walked away with significant doubts.
Not doubt about the advice, but doubts about HERSELF!
Perhaps this doesn't surprise you.
But all I could think was that with her level of intelligence, passion, positive attitude, work ethic, amount of information gathering she'd done, and the foundation to give it her all, the advice was only a REFLECTION OF THE ADVICE GIVER'S INTERNAL STORIES, BELIEFS, BIASES, EXPERIENCES, FEARS, AND ACCUMULATED TRIALS.
Guys, YOU have to be the author's of your life! You must pen the story where you are the hero if you want to live authentically!
Ask those who have experience in your field or in the area that you are perhaps pursuing, but don't leave your soul and your will out of that conversation!
Have you ever accepted and believed the advice you've been given and allowed it to crush your dreams?
