Do you seek advice from someone who is similar to you, or someone who is where you want to be?
If you listen to people from both examples, which advice have you been more likely to follow if you think back in your life and decisions you have made?
I think this applies to any and all things in life. Careers, raising children, relationships. I think maybe we are inclined to listen to the people who we identify most with, but probably it is best to take advice from the people who have acheived what we seek.
