No matter where we are in life, we are constantly confronted with the urge to ask for advice from a friend or mentor.
We seek a kind of external validation for whatever we're undertaking in the hopes that we'll gain the courage to continue on that particular path.
While seeking advice is helpful and shows a kind of inner humility required to grow, the greatest advice is no advice.
