We assume that things must be different for the one giving us sound advice. It must have been easier for them. There must have been an unfair privilege or comparative advantage. Or worse still, they do not understand that our case is different.

The truth is, right choices are never easy. No one can fully describe the sacrifices made or share the depth of the scars they carry. Best case scenario, they colour parts of it with meaning, because they have an opportunity to look back.

Listen to sound advice, from those that walk the talk.

Act on sound advice. Walk the talk.

Reflect on your walk.

Give back to those coming after you.
