#8 Advice

"Develop a defense against people who want to convince you that you can't do it. Accept negative advice only as a challenge to prove that you can do it." - The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz 

A friend (@chipster_wes) posted that on Instagram and it got me thinking. 

In our lives, there are countless of people that speak to us trying to give us good advice. And they do it with no ill intent. But sometimes, their words, due to their seniority and life experiences could convince us to not do the things we want to do the most. And we could believe their words enough that we forgo our dreams if we are not careful. 

But that is not to say that the fault lies in others. Do I know exactly what I want? Is my inner voice louder than theirs? Is my inner critic so harsh that it dissuades me from pursuing my dreams?

That's all for today, see you tomorrow!
