Stop Taking Advice From Everybody!
When it comes to life and business, you can’t get direction from just anyone. So please, if you are, stop asking any and everybody for directions. Not everyone is qualified enough to speak into your life. Be careful who you take direction from.
Some of these people you are asking direction from haven’t accomplished where you are asking them to get, themselves. If they have never been through it, please don’t take direction from them. If they don’t know where they are going in life and business, please don’t take any direction from them.
Even when the people your asking this advice don’t know, they will make up something. You have to realize when this happening. Instead of saying they don’t know or sending you to someone who does, they will make something up.
Another thing, some people intentionally give you bad advice. They will give you the bad information to trip you up. They have a motive, for some reason or another, behind why they are giving you this bad advice. Then you get mad at them for not giving you the right advice. You should really be mad at yourself for going to people that aren’t qualified to help you.
Oh and don’t think your family is exonerated. Your family won’t always give you the right advice either. You would think your family would want to send you in the right direction, that’s not always the case. They may have a motive, they maybe jealously. Family are just people that are relational to you. And even though they are family, don’t mean you owe them anything. They should have to pay just like everyone else. You are too talented to give your stuff away for free.
The next thing, does this person that your asking for help have a godly nature about them? I’m not saying they have to be a holy roller, I’m asking are they are a believer? Do they operate out of love? When people go out of their way to support you that is godly. Anyone can say they have your back but when the chips are down, are they there?
You also need to ask yourself, is this person that you are asking for direction, are they good people. Good people do things for you, they sincerely go out of their
way for you. Good people don’t have to tell the world when they are blessing someone. Find a few good people, you will know when you come across them.
Do these people you are asking advice from, do they care about you? Do they genuinely care where you go in life? Do they tell the truth or is there motives to their direction. Make sure there’s no possible motives behind the advice from this person.
Lastly, is this person qualified? A lot of people will go out and start a business and have no idea about it, do it to just to start a business. They aren’t qualified. There are people that specialize in the area you need help, go out there and invest in someone qualified.
Lastly, Are they walking the walk? Are they practicing what they preach? Do they show up everyday even when the chips are down? Are they telling you to work hard and they aren’t? We’ve got make sure the people we are asking direction from are who they say they are, that very important.
