Professionals from LinkedIn share the best advice they received in life
During the Golden Globe Awards, after coming up to accept their award, many used the opportunity the thank the people that helped them along and inspired their careers. It well illustrates the fact that all of us in one way or another are a product of the time, sacrifice and loving advice we received from friends, family, teachers, mentors and the like.
I asked inspiring professionals on LinkedIn to share with me the best piece of advice they ever received. Here is what they had to say!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him [God] and He will direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
"The best advice I ever received was this: When you make a decision, stick to it."
"The memory you have of your past is not as accurate as you think. Let stuff go. It is over and done with."
"Give yourself time to succeed!!!"
"To be true to oneself, be humble and don´t judge the book by it´s cover." "Always try to put yourself in others shoes if they appear to have less than you do and never look down to other people".
"The truth needs no rehearsal."
"My 5th-grade teacher told us to give everyone the benefit of the doubt."
"Take a look from outside yourself, and see how people actually view you."
"My mom once told me that hey Son, don't worry because a BIG NO on your job application is an additional reason to work hard and harder."
