Friends, Family, and Seeking Advice: Better Conversations Podcast with Derek and Carrie Olsen. Ep. 008
Your friends and family don’t know everything, and that’s okay. (Tweet this)
The fact that your family and friends aren’t experts in every area of life is okay. However, taking advice as if they are experts could steer you in the wrong direction.
The places and people you look to for advice matters. If your cousin is not a lawyer, would you ask her for legal advice?
Would you be offended if your brother chose to not ask your advice about a subject that you know nothing about?
When considering asking family and friends for advice, consider this:
- Are they experts in this area? Do they get paid to do what you are asking them about?
- Are they achieving the kind of results that you are seeking for yourself?
- Do they have your best interest in mind? Are they a positive influence over your life?
Have you considered avoiding the influence of members of your family or circle of friends?
