So I woke up today and thought about writing this post. Where are you getting your advice from? Most of us get our advice from the wrong sources and we are very surprised when the results do not measure up to expectations. Do you ever ask yourself why this is so? It is because the people we turn to for advice are themselves not knowleadgeable in what we are asking them about. So how do you know the best person from whom to seek advice?
It depends on what you want to do. If you want to cook a meal and you do not know how to go about it then you have to ask it from somebody who has cooked that meal before and who has done his own mistakes so that you can avoid making the same mistakes and find the most efficient way to do that thing you are about to do. If you have problem in your finances and you want to put then in order then see your banker and talk with him or her. Don’t seek for advice from your friend who cannot even manage his own finances. I am amazed to see the places and people we usually turn to for advice. If you are in ministry and your ministry is experiencing problems, then go see a friend who’s ministry is working well and find out how he is doing to manage his ministry. You cannot seek this type of advice from a lawyer. He would give you the wrong type of advice.
