Jean-Paul Sartre said that we always seek out the advisors who will tell us what we want to hear. It's true that when we give advice to people that they don't want, they never come to us for advice again. A lady once went to the doctor who told her she had appendicitis. She went to another doctor for second opinion. The second doctor said she had heart trouble. The woman started to leave. "Where are you going?" the doctor asked. "I'm going back to the first doctor— I'd rather have appendicitis." At times we all need advice, and we need to get the best advice we can. At times we even need to seek out and receive encouraging advice from those we know who will affirm us and encourage us in the direction in which we are moving. But there are also times when we need to turn within ourselves and listen to our own intuition, our innermost self, for guidance and direction. While outer advice is good and useful in its time, the best advice we can receive, many times, comes from deep within our own hearts.
