Opinions Are Like… – 2 Tips for Making the Most of Advice

The Best Life Advice You Would Give:

“Be yourself.”

You are not your job or your family. You are not your education or your social status. Your life is yours to live how you want it to be. If you feel like you have been living too much, then stop doing so and go back to being yourself. That’s all there is to it!

“Don’t worry about other people’s opinions.”

It is true that others may think differently than you do. However, they don’t really know anything about you and probably won’t ever understand your situation. They will just make assumptions based on their own experiences and beliefs. People tend to judge others harshly because they believe these judgments are correct. Don’t listen to them!

Just be yourself and let the world decide if it likes what it sees!

“If something doesn’t work out, try again.”

Try things until you succeed. Try new things and see which ones you enjoy most. If something isn’t working out, then change it up! Try a different approach to something. For example, instead of trying to get someone to like you, try getting them interested in something else.

Then after some time they might start liking you even more!

“Never criticize another person’s appearance or behavior. There are no ugly or stupid people in this world. Any person can become anything, given the right place and time. This world has its own way of judging people. What may seen as ugly or stupid to you, may be perfectly acceptable in another place.”

Why Does A Person Give Advice?

“An expert doesn’t give tips on how to do something. Instead, he tells you why something can’t be done. And then he finds someone who can do it. An expert is someone who has succeeded where everyone else has failed. He succeeds not by being better, but by being alone. The expert makes the impossible possible because he is the only one who was willing to try. The expert stands alone.

There are two types of people in this world: the achievers, and the talkers. The achievers do what they set out to accomplish. They move towards their goals steadily, sometimes slowly, but never quit. The talkers talk about what they are going to do, but they always come up with an excuse not to do it.

Give your life direction. Determine what you want to accomplish, and then set out to do it. If you find that you don’t like where you’re going, change direction. Just keep moving. The achiever is a person who knows where they are going in life and does everything in his power to get there.

The achiever is a person worth knowing.”

What Makes a Good Question?

“A good question has several qualities. First, it’s answerable. Second, it’s answerable with a simple yes or no. Third, it’s answerable with an example from your own life. Finally, it helps you to understand yourself and the world.”

The Two Best Types of Questions:

The first type of question is one that has plagued mankind since the beginning of time: why? As in, ‘Why does this keep happening to me?’

Or, ‘Why is this the way it is?
