25 Excellent Pieces of Advice That Most People Ignore

When you hear good advice, you should always do two things: Take it in and pass it on.

By Lolly Daskal

It's easy to find someone to tell you what you want to hear, but your true ally is one who tells you what you need to learn.

Give yourself an edge with these 25 gems of sage advice that most people ignore.

1. Take time to know yourself. "Know thyself" said Aristotle. When you know who you are, you can be wise about your goals, your dreams, your standards, your convictions. Knowing who you are allows you to live your life with purpose and meaning.

2. A narrow focus brings big results. The number one reason people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have come. But it's a series of small wins that can give us the most significant success.

Quote for a day

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less-than-perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful." - Mark Victor Hansen
