If you are trying to make any improvement in your life, you certainly have received many "pieces of advice" from friends, family and even from random people you don't know. And yes, most of those opinions are not helpful at all and you didn’t even ask for them. Let me know in the comments if you received those annoying advice.
This is what we have figured out:
Most people's opinions come from a place of fear
Yes, people have their own issues, their own experiences, their own set of beliefs and most of the advice you will get comes from mainly two fears. The fear that something terrible can happen to you. Or the fear of realizing that they were wrong.
Let me give you some examples.
My parents have always shared their opinions with me, and most of their thoughts are about what if… what if something bad happens to you? What if you lose all your...

Many people we know had tried to make a vision board, get magazines and put pictures of all the things they want but they are not attracting the life they really dream of. Why is that?
1. Have a clear purpose
2. Take actions that align with that purpose
A friend of mine was talking the other day about her vision board. She was saying that she bought the exact car that she visioned on her board.
