The best piece of advice I’ve been given…

I’ve been talking a lot about advice today.  The greatest tips, the life changing conversations and the exposure to completely new views or life approaches that stay with you and shape your own decisions.  It’s quite incredible; once you start delving into the subject you realise just how many little rules or ideals you live by or aspire to – combine this with sharing and exchanging all these pearls of wisdom with other people and suddenly everyone is a patchwork of the people they’ve come into contact with.  Finding out one rule that someone else lives by can absolutely fill in your understanding of them as a person.

So I thought I would share some of the best pieces of advice I’ve been given… and some of the pieces of advice that were shared with me today…. and some that I wish someone had told me 10 years ago!
