Some Good Advice

From the Friendship Files

We're constantly getting advice from the people around us, regarding different things. But there'll always be one special piece of advice that we treasure above all the rest. Heartfelt words that someone has said to us which struck a note, inspired a dream or changed our lives for the better. Today, my friends and I share the best advice we've ever been given. 

What Is The Best Advice You've Ever Received?

*When ever I'm afraid to try something new, my best friend always says to me, "You have nothing to lose. Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

*Some opportunities only come around once, seize them so as to avoid a life of regret.

*Don't walk away from negative people - RUN!

*"No one can diminish you but yourself". A friend said this to me and it's my favourite advice.

*Forget all the negative comments people give you. Cherish the compliments.

*You're not always going to be the skinniest, smartest or prettiest girl in the room. But don't let that intimidate you. Take the best of what you have and learn to work with it.

*Chocolate is the cure to everything!

*Don't try so hard to fit in. Your differences make you stand out. How will you make your mark in the world if you're exactly like everyone else.

*My mother said to me, "Remember that one day may be hard but the next day gets better.' Those words have carried me through the toughest moments in my life. 

*Don't lose hope if you fail at something. Next time, just have more faith and work harder. But most importantly, make sure that there is a 'next time'.

*Listen to your parents, they always know best. (This was said to me by my parents, naturally).

*A lecturer once said to us in class, "Don't ever be afraid to ask questions. If you don't ask, you will never know. A curious mind is the key to a better education."

*If the shoe fits, buy two pairs!

*I was told: sometimes in difficult times or tasks you have moments when you think you can't do this, it's too much. Just hang on, those moments will pass and you will look back from a better place & think - lucky I didn't give up because its all ok now & so worth it...and it will be.

*Be thankful for all that you have because there's always someone out there who has less than you and who will give anything to be in your shoes.

*I've realised in life, that nothing worth anything is easy to come by...nothing. You have to work at it or for it.

*Don't sit around and wait for something great to happen to you. Get off that couch and make it happen yourself.

*Don't change for anyone, if they can't accept you for who you are then they certainly don't deserve you.

*The most important asset a girl has is her reputation. Its like having a flawless complexion - once its scarred it will always be there every time you look in the mirror.

*Be true to yourself, only then will you enjoy life.

*A work colleague told me, "Your career isn't everything. Make time for your family, friends & self. Because at the end of the day, if things get tough, who's more likely to be there for you?"

*Live each day like it was your last.

*If you don't believe in yourself no one else will, so stop feeling sorry for yourself, dream big and you will achieve much.

*Never judge others because you don't know when you will be in their shoes.

*Leave the past where it the past.

*The best advice I've ever received is from my friend, who told me, "Don't cut yourself short. If you don't have respect and appreciation for yourself, no one else will."

*"Everything you get out of life is what you've settled for." This taught me to not to settle for less than I deserve.

Thanks to all my friends for passing on their favourite bits of advice to us. 

Dear Lovely Reader, I would love for you to also share the best advice you've ever received.
