You may feel more receptive than usual to the suggestions others make today. And if you actively seek out advice, you may feel so beholden to the individuals willing to provide you with guidance that you are compelled to follow their counsel. But your open-minded and easygoing mood will not necessarily make you more vulnerable to certain forms of pressure. You can steer your own course today by interpreting the recommendations you are given as being nothing more than one choice in a larger series of possibilities. Carefully consider each piece of advice you receive, and you will likely find that you can easily determine which will have a positive impact on your experiences.
We are less apt to fall under the spell of individuals who do not have our best interests in mind when we are careful whose counsel we accept. When we are in need of guidance, many people will come forward with advice intended to influence our direction. The sheer volume of suggestions we receive can make choosing a path that much more difficult as we may be unsure of who we can trust. Mulling over recommendations before taking them to heart guarantees that we do not find ourselves mired in circumstances we did not intend to court. Then, whether we accept others’ counsel or choose to follow a more individualized course, we can be sure that we have made the correct decision and can move forward with confidence. When you curb your general receptivity to advice today, you will be better equipped to make good use of guidance.
