Be Wary of Advice

The fallacy of giving advice is that what works for one person rarely works for another. Advice is unique and personal, a collection of the mistakes we make, synthesized and abridged for a recipient.

It’s worth giving and listening to advice but no two experiences will ever be the same.

It’s one of my theories that when people give you advice, they’re really just talking to themselves in the past.  

Steve Garguilo

The best advice we can give someone is to encourage them to come up with their own advice. Our words compel them to live and learn from their own aura of experience.
