Be your own advisor
Giving somebody else advice is easy, because it isn't us that has to follow it through, but advising ourselves is harder, because we don't always want to follow our own advice.
Being our own advisor starts with knowing who we really are, our strengths and weaknesses. Our hopes and fears.
Although we may have many problems in our lives, our lives are not the sum of those problems.
We all have within us the ability to see clearly what we should do to solve these problems.
But first we must listen and be honest with what we need to do.
It is easy to advise ourselves, to take the easy way, but that is not always the best way to solve things.
We should rise above the temptation of the easy route and advise ourselves in a clear and objective way.
By doing this we are much more likely to overcome and learn from our problems.
Be strong, be clear, be your own advisor and thrive.
