What Is The Best Advice You Ever Received?

October 16, 2012 | 7 Comments » | Topics: Life

best advice ever given

Here is a collection of the best advice passed off to various individuals. If you want to contribute to the list, feel free to add it to the comment section and I will promptly add it to the list below:

You can be whatever you want to be. If you dont make it, your effort probably stopped with just wanting.

Always leave a place a little nicer than you found it.. 

At 20, my friend encouraged me to go back to college. I was working full time and a single parent. I told her “going part time, it will take me ten years!”. She said, “So, what will you be doing in 10 years?”. At age 30, I got my bachelor’s degree. At 33, I finished my MBA. I’m 55 now and doing well. Thanks for the kick in the pants Shari.


Be careful to whom you give advise; the wise don’t need it and the foolish don’t listen

If it looks like a duck & smells like a duck, it probably is a duck!!!

Your rent or house payment should never be more than 25% of your take home pay…

When you don’t have a choice on something, you can still choose you attitude.

If you lay down with the dogs, youll get thier fleas

Listen to your mother.

My father, when he was teaching me to drive, emphasized to me to not trust a driver stopped at an intersection, until you can see the whites of his eyes. It has kept me accident free, (except for once when I failed to do this), for 45 years of driving.

Don’t spend more than you earn, And try to earn at least your age in thousands

To listne twice as much as you speak.

It takes twice as many muscles to frown than it does to smile so you should smile more.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!

To “Pay Yourself 1st!” out of your paycheck…which means tuck some away in Savings! It’s worked out great for me!

Don’t focus on the destination, enjoy the journey.

Everything about life if a choice. Make good choices.

Don’t stay in a bad marriage “for the children”. All it does is teaches the children how to have a bad marriage.

Just because you make mistakes, doesn’t mean you are one.

    “earn at least your age in thousands”

    Thousand of what?

    Even 100 thousands of zimbabwean dollars wont buy a single meal.

    And is this amount earned per day, per week, per month, per year?

    Very sloppy work

    “- Don’t talk about magic. Live magic.”

    WTF does that mean?

    Should be “Don’t talk bullshit.”

    “God gave us brains”? No, our brains are the result of evolution, and to use them to believe in a great pixie in the sky shows you’re not using yours.
