“Listening to good advice is worth much more than jewelry made of gold.”
You must determine what is good advice. There are those who love you so much and they only tell you what you want to hear. Even though they love you they may have their own interest in mind. They may look up to you and love you so much that no matter they will always agree with what you want. There are times when what you want is brought on by your emotional state at the time. Decisions should not be made by emotions.
There are also others whose best interest is for you to succeed. They think about things before they give you advice. These are the kind of people who are not influence by jealousy or greed. They just like being around you. They will tell you that you are being a horse’s rear when you are. They don’t want to see you get beat up by someone else so they tell you to stop what you are doing.
