What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? I can honestly say that I am thankful for advice given to me from those wanting to help me grow and learn over the years. I am, also, thankful for those that realized that rather than advice, what I really needed was a chance to rant, release and move on. Having people in your life that are willing and able to let you do just that when necessary is fantastic.
The times I have been given the best advice it was given honestly, straight-forward and with love. I did not feel as though I was being chastised or judged. It was from the heart and it was genuine.
When receiving advice and trying to determine if it is best for me or not, I typically consider:
- the source – is this someone who is trustworthy and reliable?
- the intentions – is this advice with a catch or is it genuine?
- my gut instinct – do I feel hesitant when acting on the advice or does it feel right?
When have you been most thankful for advice?
Each Thursday on Divas With A Purpose, we pause to reflect on what we’re thankful for. Gratitude is a huge part of my life. A few years ago I made a conscious decision to reflect more on what I had versus what I did not have – since then I have seen a considerable positive change in my attitude and demeanor even in stressful situations. I encourage my supporters to take a moment to think about what they have to be thankful for. Feel free to share below in the comments – you never know how you’ll inspire and motivate someone else.
Many thanks to everyone that joined us for last week’s Facebook Thankful Thursday event!
