We all come across advice from experts in our lives. Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or a photographer, you probably heard people around you or online figures talk about advice from experts and what you should be doing with your aspirations and goals. Unfortunately, all of the advice we receive sometimes confuses us.
That is why you should try doing this the next time you receive feedback or advice from someone. You should try questioning the advice and trying what seems to work for you. Remember no master chef follows someone else’s recipe. If you want to be the best at what you do, if you want to be the next Elon Musk or Leonardo da Vinci. Learn how to question advice.
There is nothing wrong with taking some of the advice you receive and implementing it in your own life, however, if you do that with every piece of advice you will lose your authenticity and you will become another person following the proven path. Humans find new ways for doing things by not listening to all of the advice given to them.
If you read the stories of successful people like Elon Musk or Leonardo da Vinci, you will quickly see how they took different paths while still listening to some advice from others. If you can find the balance between listening to advice and taking your own path, you will be able to attain your aspirations and goals.
Remember no master chef follows someone else’s recipe.
