The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example.

Leading expert

You are the world’s leading expert when it comes to your own life. You know better than anyone else what you truly desire, what’s most important to you, and what you most enjoy doing.

It’s always helpful to consider the advice and opinions of others. Yet it’s rarely ever a good idea to let anyone else make your decisions for you.

A lifetime of experience has given you a unique and valuable perspective on what’s best for your life. When you’re seeking some good advice, be sure to listen to your own.

Yes, it’s easier to blindly follow someone else’s advice than it is to think for yourself. Plus, when things don’t work out you have someone to blame.

You’re far better off, however, following your own best instincts when it comes to the direction of your life. Sure, that means you must take full responsibility, and yet with that responsibility comes the possibility of real fulfillment.

Listen to others, learn from others, and let their positive examples inspire you. Then decide for yourself, move confidently forward and live the life you were truly meant to live.
