"Brother Faiket, I think I need some advice on money matters" was the message of one of my friends. The reason he contacted me was because someone posted a message on a Whatsapp group about my book "Uncensored Truth About Money" and the guy was strongly recommending the book.
I replied my friend that we can discuss but the way we minister/advise is very direct and some people cannot take it and easily get offended. Knowing that he is older than me, I thought he would not mind a straight forward approach...but to my surprise, he paused for sometime and said he will be in touch.
It has been more than three months that this conversation happened and I have not heard from my friend. Many people would rather accept the status quo that they are living instead of accepting a correction. Many waste many years of their life trying their best to figure out something that they don't know when all it takes is about 30 minutes with someone who already knows the answer to their problem.
Be open to correction is very important if you are serious about changing your life. Just like using the waze or google maps when you drive somewhere. You might be taking the wrong turn and the waze application will figure out another way to reach your destination. You have two choices to make: accept the new way that waze application is showing you or ignore it and continue your way and delay reaching your destination or getting even further from your destination.
Be open to correction.
