Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Advice is a Double Edged Sword

Advice is a Double Edged Sword


Motivational Power Quote


Advice is a Double Edged Sword     

“Advice is seldom welcomed

and those who want it the most always like it the least.”

Lord Chesterfield, 1694 -1773 British Statesman       


As I see it . . . . . . .


Advice is a double edged sword


Being involved in sports for a good part of my life it’s a proven fact that a good coach that gives sincere advice to their players will make the player better. 


When the player is receptive a coach’s advice they can move a player from being good to exception. The same can be said for teams a good coach can take a good team and create the environment to move the team to play at a championship level.


Advice is a very interesting thing a person receiving good advice with a closed mind will not benefit from the advice. The opposite will occur when advice is offered to a person with an open mind; they will take the advice build on it and take their career to the next level.


Listen to the person who that has your best interest in their heart and offers you sincere advice. They see the best in you and want you to being the best that’s in you to the surface.


Advice is a double edge sword for those with an open mind it’s a gate way to a brighter future. For those with a closed mind it’s an annoyance that’s they bush off.
