It is far easier to give advice than take it.
When it’s not our dream, budget, or livelihood on the line, it’s not too difficult to be optimistic and forward thinking on behalf of someone else.
“You can do it!”
“Go for it!”
What happens when the table turns and others give us advice? It suddenly becomes a little bit more difficult to move forward (even when the advice is good!).
“Here’s the problem…”
A lot of this hesitation is rooted in our insecurities, fears, and irrational thinking. Like many others we give advice to, we spend too much time stressing over hypothetical scenarios that ultimately stay fictional. What are you waiting for?
Jot down some of the advice you give others and try applying them into your own life. You’ll be surprised to see (1) how much good advice you give to others and (2) how much stuff you can get done if you implement those ideas.
Take your own advice in idea-making.
