The Secret to Making Better Decisions

10 Feb 2023

Taking advice from others is a natural part of life, but not all advice is created equal. I want to tell you about a powerful lesson that I've learned in life, a lesson that has helped me make better decisions and live a happier life: Never take advice from anyone you can't switch lives with.

We are often bombarded with advice from family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers. But how do we know if this advice is truly good for us? How do we know if it aligns with our values and goals?

That's where this rule comes in. If you can't imagine switching lives with the person giving you advice, then their advice might not be right for you. Because, let's face it, if someone is living a life that you wouldn't want for yourself, then why would you want to follow their advice?

Consider this scenario: you're trying to make a major life decision, such as switching careers or starting a family. You turn to a friend for advice, but she's always unhappy in her job and constantly complains about her personal life. Would you want to follow her advice and risk ending up in a similar situation? Probably not.

Think about it, would you take fashion advice from someone who's never stepped foot outside of their comfort zone? Would you take financial advice from someone who's constantly struggling to make ends meet? No, of course not! So why would you take life advice from someone who's not living the life you aspirate to?

Now, this doesn't mean that you should dismiss all advice that doesn't come from someone you admire. There is value in hearing different perspectives and gaining new insights. However, when it comes to making important decisions, it's essential to seek out advice from people who are living lives that align with your values and goals.

So, how do you find these people? They could be friends, mentors, or role models who inspire you with their lives. They are the individuals who make you believe that anything is possible and who encourage you to chase your dreams. These are the people whose advice you should trust and seek out.

In conclusion, always remember this simple rule: never take advice from anyone you can't switch lives with. By doing this, you'll surround yourself with positivity, inspiration, and guidance that will help you live your best life.
