Seek counsel from the wise

Do you know anyone that has their shit together? Maybe your father or mother, someone you work with, or a friend. We all want to be so very self sufficient that we ignore the wise people around us. Instead we prefer to step in the shit ourselves instead of seeking advice from someone more mature and wiser.

It’s not just a matter of seeking out advice, in fact it is often easier just to observe the behavior of those people we consider wise. What habits have they adopted? How do they behave? What types of relationships do the seem to possess?

Don’t be afraid to ask for advice and emulate the people that you consider to have their shit together. Just be sure you are wise enough yourself to emulate the right ones.
