20 THOUGHT OF THE DAY–ADVICE

Advice, counsel, guidance, inevitable at some point in your life people will come to you for it whether it be friends, family, colleagues or complete strangers. When that moment comes there are just a few things you need to consider.
 
When giving advice it is always wise to remember that the person receiving your counsel has the inherent right to choose whether or not your recommendations is applicable to their circumstance, life, and experience.

IN OTHER WORDS...
When all is said and done, in spite of your time, effort, compassion, empathy, sympathy and guidance people will decide what is best for their selves and apply it accordingly.
 
SIMPLY PUT...
You cannot insist to whom you are giving the advice that they must do as you say, when you say, how you say. It’s not about you; it’s about them and what they feel is relevant and what will work or will not work.
 
MY POINT…
Keep your ego in check; leave it out of it equation. If your ego is too fragile to handle the truth of individual choice, then you need not be giving advice; frankly you would be better off keeping your opinions to yourself.
