It’s quite ironic that we are statistically far less likely to follow the advice of our friends and family than we are to follow advice received from people that barely know us at all.
Researchers hypothesised that this was due to the advice recipients assuming their closer relations were biased by their personal interests, which was rarely true.
It can sometimes be hard to accept good advice, but good advice is usually quite good advice!
So the next time you hear wise words, ask yourself not only if it could help you live a happier life; also question the validity of any resistance that may arise against following it.
As always, may you be well and be happy 🙂
