When Heeding Advice Consider the Source

Some people get off on telling other people what to do.

They are constantly giving advice – whether they are knowledgeable on the subject or not.

They just can’t help themselves.

They are so desperate to be heard that when they exhaust live listeners, they resort to sharing their 2 cents on social media.

Although their 2 cents isn’t even worth a penny, unsuspecting virtual strangers may not know any better.

Before heeding advice, scrutinize the source.

Make sure you are not taking medical advice from someone who has lost his medical license, legal advice from a criminal, or investment advice from someone who picks stocks by throwing darts – regardless of whether dart throwers have been known to outperform some analysts.

No enemy is worse than bad advice. Enemies may aggravate, but bad advice can annihilate.

But, seriously, don’t take my word for it.
