Advice and Suggestions

Have you ever given advice or a suggestion and someone responded with “You’re not my boss!” or “Who died and left you in charge?” Too often, we want to run our own lives according to our own plans, and we see help from others as interference. This is not good.

Some people are over confident even in their errors and refuse to accept the ideas of others. They defend their stand to the death. This is not a good thing. The ability to withhold judgment, consider differing views, assessing them and doing due diligence is the key towards arriving at truthful information that form the bases for one’s decision. This is a leadership skill that has to be trained and developed.

Successful people love to hear advice including things they do not want to hear but they need to hear. This is humility and they get to enjoy the benefits later on.
