Our own advice is often good…for us.
Sometimes we’re asked for our opinions; other times we offer them unbidden. We speak from our own life experience and insight, which frequently may have value.
The merit of our advice may be clear to us. We may even be frustrated if others don’t follow it. Their lives would surely be better. we may feel, if they heeded what we have to say.
What we may fail to realize is that our advice is also good for us. When we give our recommendations, we may not consider that it would be helpful to make sure we’re following them as well.
Today’s message suggests that I pay attention when I extend advice. I want to ensure I’m applying my personal wisdom to my life too.
Please reflect and share. Do you take your own advice?
