The funny thing about the success is that you need to listen to people to achieve it, and yet you should not listen to people, or you will never reach it. It is like “listen to no one” and “listening is most important” at the same time. It is the matter of choosing the right people to listen to I guess. As well as understanding that there are times not to listen even to those folks you are typically listening to.
The opinion said aloud becomes advice.
