Some advice for advisors

People who have had a great impact in my life weren’t the ones telling me what I needed to hear, but the ones who drove me to where I’d tell to myself what I needed to hear. Big difference.
That’s the way you want to think while giving advice—if giving any. Don’t give a step-by-step of what they should do, instead, ask more questions and listen to the answers. (Ironically this is me telling you what to do.)
People often/rarely believe what they hear from others, but always believe what they themselves. Want to make a impact on someone? Guide them to the conclusion you want them to find.
Change is hard, but it is possible when people tell themselves the story of that change.
