How To Best Handle Advice For Personal Growth...

Everywhere we go, we see so many people offering advice on almost every topic: Do this! Don’t do that! Don’t do this! Don’t do that! Behave in this way or that way!

Whether at home or outdoors- including the workplace, entertainment kiosks, or institutions, such as schools, colleges and religious places that are built for this purpose alone- the constant bombardment of suggestions continue. Some people try to incorporate the advice given to them, but sometimes fail so completely that they begin to advise others. This triggers a chain reaction that grips every person instantly and insanely so. Ultimately, it resembles a contagious disease.

How Best To Utilize Experience

A person is supposed to follow traffic rules, guidelines for admission into institutions, and other similar rules for smooth functioning of day-to-day life. However, advice should not be followed like a rule. One learns through a combination of free will and experimentation. The joy of experiencing is broken if it is interrupted by what someone is saying we should be doing. For example, you may be enjoying a beautiful piece of music under the open skies when your parents ask you to come inside the house, lest you catch a cold, or ask you to stop wasting your time and focus on studying instead. Nothing would have been lost in those few months of ecstasy except the beauty of the experience, which has been halted.

It is this kind of unsolicited advice that irks the most. The view of the adviser, based on his personal experience, may subsequently cause a negative outlook. The advice is not as much responsible for creating a perception, than the adviser himself. The relevancy of any suggestion, based on experience, is dependent upon the similarity of circumstance.

Often, the ones doling out unsolicited suggestions are people who are actually seeking to improve their own lives; they have utterly failed in the areas on which they comment. For example, a person whose children are completely out of control will often give tips on good parenting; the most selfish and cruel people will talk about philanthropy, religion and compassion; an uneducated person will stress on the importance of higher education, and so on.

If a person missed a particular aspect in the phase of life, he or she can realize where they went wrong if they apply conscious, rational thinking. However, this is not the case for most people. They try to cover their faults instead, turning it into an ego-fulfilling exercise. So, when a thief extols the virtue of honesty, his advice cannot be trusted and assimilated. Rather, a person’s commentary will be taken more seriously if it is accompanied by conscious rational thinking. Depending from whom it is coming, unsolicited advice is not always bad. The subtlety of it needs to be understood.

Grasping Unsolicited Advice:

The mind grasps faster than the brain. Therefore, you learn more with your perception as the application of rationality comes later. This perception is extremely individualistic.................... READ MORE IN 'NUGGET ON WINGS' BOOK
