Good Advice From Bad People

Let me clarify what I mean by “bad people”, individuals that do not necessarily have their life on point. Like you look at that person and say, ‘who are you to tell me?’ You wouldn’t be standing in line to get advice from this person. That is pretty much what I mean by good advice from bad people.

I often take advice from individuals that aren’t ideal. I feel they are the best example because they know WHAT DOES NOT WORK. This is no shade at all. Listen, I am one of those bad individuals in some situations. However, I offer some raw and unfiltered advice. I like to believe that is why people come to me for my opinion.

God have a tendency to use people we would least expect to deliver a word. Honestly, I use to judge my associates and friends that tried to give me advice but was not in my situation. I had to let that go as I got older. When started to lend my ear to what they had to offer, I promise I was placed in a better position mentally.

Navigating through this adult life, we sometimes need daily reminders of how bad life really could be. Am I wrong? A glimpse of what I could be going through humbles me so quickly. I also am forever grateful for God’s grace and mercy. Everyday I get to start over and go harder at what I did not accomplish the day before.

All I’m saying is the next time someone offers their opinion that you do not feel is qualified, hear them out. You never know if God is using them to get through to you. You never want to miss your blessing because you think the message could never come from a “bad person”.

    This is pretty obvious, without Him in our life we are mess. Everyday, throughout the day, talk to him. Give thanks, give him praises, and just kick it with him. You have to make sure your relationship with Christ stays activate in order to live a dope life.

  3. Go For It!

    Whatever your “IT” is…do it NOW! Nothing is stopping you but YOU. Cliche’ right? But it is the truth. Everyone was born to do something impactful in this universe. Your passion is not only for you. Share it with the world. Start that business, go after that promotion, take that trip, quit your job, JUST DO IT!

  4. Do Not Forget to SMILE

Smiling is not to be confused with a fake smile. Nope, a genuine smile expressing your gratitude for being able to wake up. The fact you were given another day that was never promised to you. That type of smiling can kill any negative vibes INSTANTLY.
