I was always the type of person that my friends would run to about there problems. I never pryed into there business but for some reason they liked to vent to me.
I guess it’s because I know how to stay calm in chaos or I was just a good listener who knows. When they would come to me I would try to give them the best advice I could think of.
To my surprise I was really good at giving out advice but my problem was I wasn’t good at taking my own advice. It’s easier to tell someone else to do something than it is for you to actually do it. I was a hypocrite and I had to stop doing that.
Now I make sure to only give advice that I know I’ve done in the past. I’m practicing what I preach and it makes me more confident when someone asks for my opinion.
If I feel like I can’t give the right advice because I’ve never been in that situation I say that. People like honesty rather than you tell them a bullshit story and then they take your advice and fail.
Are you someone that practices what you preach? Let me know in the comments.
