Be selective about who you listen to. In a bad relationship? Don’t get advice from your friend who’s boyfriend is abusive. Want to make money? Probably a good idea to seek out someone who runs a successful business instead of your brother whose been at a job he hates for the past 10 years.
Seek out those who can actually help you attain your goals. Whatever it is you want to achieve there is someone who’s already done it. Take advice from THAT person.
