The Stagnant Opinion, Have you been getting the wrong advice?
Updated: Aug 15, 2019
So I guess your wondering about the title a stagnant opinion. How can an opinion cause stagnation? Easy, ever recieved bad advice and had to pay the consequences? Exactly that! Consequences or should I say repercussions for taking bad advice. And sometimes it gets difficult because even the prayers you prayed doesn't give you peace or confirmation and you feel you need to ask for help. Well it's nothing wrong with acknowledging you need another person for help but bad good help can be hard to find and bad help easily accessible. Well Its like being excited that your friend who you thought was smart giving you all the right answers to a test and than "surprise" they just look smart and now you fail your finals and have to repeat.the semester because the finals were your last hope of passing. Do me a favor, take a breath I know that escalated quickly but that escalation is just a fragment of the impact the some opinions can cost you. But this doesn't mean you shouldn't take opinions, you should just qualifiy the source first.
If you are going to allow someone to be a competent mirror for you, here are a few factors I suggest considering. 1. Is this person someone whose life’s work you admire? Is this someone with a promising, positive vision of themselves in the world? Essentially, do you love what they are up to? 2. Do you love the way this individual sees you and who you aspire to be? Are they someone who supports you and inspires you to rise to every opportunity for personal growth? 3. If this person is commenting on style, image, or branding do they have good taste? Do they have taste you admire? Have they mastered aesthetics? According to Brené Brown, are they “in the arena”? Most importantly, trust most those people that hold you in a warm, accepting light, and have your best interests at heart.
In my closing some people have great opinions and while it maybe nice and may I add respectful to hear them out no matter how much you love and respect them you must take a impersonal approach in deciding If there advice is worth taking.
"Because, your life deserves real answers from a qualified source.🌼
