It’s a great feeling when people seek out our advice.
It’s affirming because people recognise our value and feel that we might be able to help them.
The challenge then is how best to help others:
- Should we Just Listen?
- What shall we advise them?
- Do they want advice or someone to bounce ideas off?
The important thing to remind ourselves is that people have come to us for our wisdom. We must strive to help them the best we can without an agenda.
But the affirmation that someone comes to us is a reminder that we matter and that we are important in the lives of others.
When was a time someone sought out your advice? Who do you turn to for advice?
