We all get advice, whether we want it or not… how many of us take that advice and put it into action is another story.

I have been lucky enough to get a few pearls of wisdom throughout my life, but the best advice I’ve ever taken was from people I viewed as a mentor.

It goes something like this: “If you believe you can you will, if you believe you can’t, then you won’t”.

It’s an inspirational phrase we may have heard before – yet simple and so true! If your attitude is negative and you tell yourself why something won’t work out… well guess what? It probably won’t!

Speak positivity into your world; truly believe in yourself and take daily action towards your goals. This is something I’ve tested and seen work time and again for myself and others, so it’s a piece of advice I take to heart.

Something else that I wouldn’t necessarily call advice per se, but more of a mantra I love to live by, comes from the late Steve Jobs: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.”

Life should be about pushing boundaries and thinking outside of the box – this is part of what drew me to Tircres!

We don’t mince words or sugarcoat the truth, it’s a platform that encourages directness and honesty. I’m constantly learning with Tircres and looking for ways to push myself further.

Lastly, my favorite piece of advice – which I’ve repeated so often that even my children know what’s coming next – is “what people say about you is none of your business”.

What other people think or say about you has no bearing on your life unless you let it. It’s irrelevant and really has nothing to do with you in the first place, right? So don’t waste time trying to change someone else’s opinion; just move on and stop giving a crap! Perhaps this should be my next tattoo…

So, those are the golden nuggets I live by – what advice do you live by?

Cheers! 🙂
