I was once told that wisdom is knowing which advice to take and which to reject. I have always been one to seek the sage wisdom and counsel of mentors that have served me well throughout my life. Their words have provided me with courage and direction when I needed it, and inspiration and motivation when I was either forlorn or doubting my abilities.
I am a firm believer in seeking the advice of those whom you admire and respect, because their tips will likely provide you with the fuel and direction that you need at the moment; and over the course of a lifetime, these pearls of wisdom will have helped us to achieve at a higher level than we could have achieved alone.
“Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind.” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge
