Be Careful Who You’re Accepting Advice From!

Three years ago and in my attempt to challenge my own belief system which was not serving me well, I had a profound insight on taking advice from others.

So I decided to stop taking financial advice from people that were broke. I stopped  listening to health tips from unhealthy people. I stopped hearing diet stories from “struggling to lose weight” people. I stopped taking relationship advice from people with toxic, unfulfilled and unhappy relationships and I stopped looking for spiritual guidance from people who are not practicing and manifesting spirituality in their lives. I also stopped listening to people who used to tell me how they are “loving” and” non-judgmental” individuals; while analyzing all their comments; I was surprised to find it full of judgment and destructive criticism.

Seriously, take a look at how often you accept, take and apply advice from people who have not manifested what they are advising? Go figure yourself! Think about the difference between “opinion” and “advice”? Someone’s opinion is not advice, it is just his opinion about a certain subject where you can agree or disagree with, and his advice is his recommendation and the “how to” he/she tells you “to do” and “follow” in order: to achieve something or manifest something you want in your life. So how can you judge if he or she is qualified to give you this advice and for you to apply it and follow it or not?

Therefore, I now apply the rule of  “If they don’t HAVE it, they don’t KNOW It” and I make sure I stay away from these people when it comes to advice I need.

The Way I See It:

So if you want money advice take it from rich people, if you want career advice take it from successful professional and highly paid people, if you want health tips take it from healthy people and if you want relationship advice take it from happy, fulfilled, successful in a relationship people and if you want spiritual advice take it from people who are truly showing and living spirituality in their lives. You will be amazed how these people when you ask them will be more than willing to give you and share with you their tips and journey of how they did it assisting you in your own quest without any expectation from their side.

It is simple, really it is! …don’t accept from anyone to pour into your mind ideas; shaping your belief system by “how” to see and “deal” with things, that they themselves don’t show and practice in their own lives ….

PS: Staying away from these people doesn’t mean stop being their friend of course not but they can still be your friends where you listen to their “Opinion” but not their “Advice”

PPS: I am sharing this experience and this advice because I did it personally in my own life and I was so surprised to see always the right people to ask them the right advice and it always brought a different perspective to my thinking and how to do things. The result: I manifested things I wanted…and enjoy the company of many friends  just not everyone I accept advice from..because I decided that my mind will not be other people’s garbage where they throw away things they can’t do themselves, their broken dreams, unachieved results, slogans and ideas they don’t really believe in themselves….I am filtering anything before it goes to my mind…happy filtering!

Love & Light
