When you look for advice, always check a source. How much is the information reliable? From where this information came? It this opinion came from independent sources? Is it subjective or the objective opinion?
What kind of source it is, depends on our actions and sometimes future. If we do not consider our source, we can stay in the dark, surrounded by the false and harmful information.
Do Friends Want to Protect You?
How often did you hear, that something is too complicated, too expensive, that it is not for us and so on? Friends, relatives, parents want us just the best. Of course, if your friends are right. I mean these friends, who do not let you alone in the difficult situations. Kings had many friendly satellites when they were at the peak of their reign. Just something changed, somebody as a mighty king took over, and all friends of the first king turned their backs to him.
Be thankful for friends
Good friends are our stable haven and comfort. But in areas, where your future, goals, and business considered, you need to choose the reliable source to look for advice. Our friends want to us the best. They want to protect us from the pain, failures, and disappointment. What is the most important thing, that they want to keep us in their company? Sometimes they object our growth. They prefer for us to stay in the same level of evolution as they are.
Check the reliability of source
Check the qualification of people, from whom you get recommendations. Who are these people? What they achieved in their lives? What credentials do they have? If you have questions regarding your health, see the doctor instead of looking for advice from friends.
It is best not to talk about your dreams. Keep it for yourself and reach for it, until everything achieved. If you fail, you will get up, shake up and go forward.
If you look for advice, consider people, who already achieved in their lives results, which are the example for you. The best source already did action, which is visible through achievements and outcome.
Decide what you want to achieve
It is important to have a starting point, where you know what kind of your goal is.
Do you need to buy a car or computer? Do you want to start the business online? Would you like have the freedom do what you want to do? Do you want to learn how to speak against big auditorium?
When you know what you want, you can start to look for a reliable source. For example, the information about cars found in websites with customers feedback, in the Wikipedia, manuals with advice from mechanics, who repair these cars.
For starting the business online, you need to know what kind of company is, does it offer you knowledge from the beginning to end? Is this company trustworthy? Do you need to pay for the service ahead? Do they let you try things by yourself and let you decide if it is right for you or not?
Feedback from happy costumers and word of mouth helps decide us if these services are good or not.
Choose best information sources
Magazines such as Forbes, Bloomberg News recognized sources to these people who interested in the financial success. Magazine Nature is an interdisciplinary scientific reference for scientists and individuals, who want to educate themselves. Now there are online versions of these magazines. You need to pay a subscription fee, but it is nothing to compare with the expertise and advice, what you got from them.
If you have your favorite person, which is an example and a role model for you, you can subscribe to their newsletter. I have newsletters from Robin Sharma, Dr. Carolyn Dean, and Timothy Ferriss. These titans offer the free invaluable information in their presented fields.
Think about an area where you would like to be successful. Following steps of people, who are the beacons for you, you will open more doors to the sources, which were unknown to you.
