Quick lesson today.
We live in a world of people who are full of advice. They know this and that. They will tell you how to make money, how to run relationships and how to get saved. They will tell you how to get 10 000 fans on Facebook. They will tell you how to be happy and how to travel to faraway places. They will tell you how to quit your job and how to start a business.
Most of the time I don’t give a shit about what they say. Especially about, how to get saved and how to get 10 000 fans on Facebook.
Even when they prove to me that they really did what they are teaching me, I will still have my guards up. Because often they did something, but not exactly the way they are teaching.
This brings me to a point. You have to have an internal crap-o-meter.
Proof is not enough. A good proof is when there is an exact cause-effect relationship established. What causes what?
So next time, when someone tells you that you need to smile a lot and that will cause success in your life, investigate their advice little further.
I once tested this advice. I looked like an idiot.
Test everything. Including what I just said.
And be careful with your own advice to people. If you think you know, but don’t do it, you don’t really know.
So, yes you need advice. But you need the best advice you can find. Not just any advice. There is a difference between an “expert” and an expert.
Go For Your Goals.
