Whom To Seek Advice From

PS: Re-sharing past story.

Now I’m coming back from this trek. 

When I was going up, of course, this is a jungle trek. I’m alone. My mind was full of uncertainty. I had no idea what is there after next turn. 

But when I’m going down, I’m very comfortable. I’m very calm, composed. 

Why? 

And we all know the answer to this question because I am doing something which I’ve already done. I’ve already traveled on this path and I’m just doing it again. 

This is exactly what is required when you take advice in your life. 

If you want to take advice from anyone, make sure that person has made that journey, has traveled on that path, the path on which you want to travel. 

If you want to be a singer, take advice from the person who is a singer.

If you want to be a dancer, take advice from the person who is a dancer.

If you have done engineering and you want to be a wildlife photographer, take advice from the person who is an engineer and doing wildlife photography. 

Because these are the people who have already made the journey. 

They know what are the terms, they know what are the problems, they know what are the challenges there. 

And these are the people who can guide you. 

This is the thumb rule, which even I follow in my life, if I want to take advice, I take the advice from the person who has achieved what I want to achieve in my life. 

And the same thing I do. 

I give advice to people only on those things, which I have done in my life. 

I have no rights to give you advice, something on which I have not done if I have not made that journey.

    Very true. I have seen people giving advice without any experience. Advice is a great art, People seeking advice should know to whom they should get advice.

What is that special element in public speaking that makes people listen to you every time? and how to find out what people really want to listen to and how to take them in flow with you?
