Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect.

Following your advice

If you knew someone in your own situation, what advice would you give that person? What course of action, what priorities, what strategies would you suggest?

Think about that, and then think about this. Are you, right now, following your own advice?

It’s easy to know what to do when you’re not the person who has to do it. When you actually have to implement the advice, things get complicated and uncomfortable.

Yet good advice is good advice. And you are well positioned to give yourself good advice.

Yes, it will involve some real work to do what you know must be done. Fortunately, as difficult as it may be, you can absolutely do that work and follow the advice you yourself would offer.

So go ahead, be brutally honest and give yourself the advice you need to hear. Then take it to heart, put it into action, and make the progress you know you can make.

— Ralph Marston
