Advice on how to maintain business and personal relation with others, how to stay motivated, how to run business, and so on. However, many times, the advice conflicts with the real-world scenarios.

The person who gave you the advice- author, mentor, your family member or friend. Or is it you? The answer is it’s you who is at fault. The reason is that there is a certain method to take advice and if you follow that method then you can see more successful outcomes in decision making than usual.
