We love giving others advice — often with a “take it or leave it” qualifier.
But when it comes to hearing and accepting advice from someone else? That’s not always so easy, is it?
Maybe I’m the only one with the virtual deflector shields of “I know what I’m doing” and “I can figure this out on my own.”
But then there’s the truth: Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed. (Proverbs 15:22 NIV)
Advice, a.k.a. counsel, can be a good thing. Our failures — and the wisdom we glean from them — can often lead to both our future success. And others’ success too.
