Advising on what? I have given advice to people. More often than what I have preferred. Because honestly, I don't like giving advice but it just seems to spill out of my mouth anyways. ha ha I am working on it though. I am still not making progress on not advising...but I am working on it. ha ha But does the advice work that I give. It would if that person would follow it. ha ha But the person does not always follow and that is why I prefer to keep those thoughts to myself.

Advising not to booze too much.not to be short tempered,not to be extravagant,to do work outs to keep fit,to eat less and wisely.These kind of advices.People seldom change their attitude regardless of the person advising them how much ever close to them.A tiger never changes it's stripes.Generally.

You are so smart that you need no advice from those who preach but not practice.

It works exactly like it's supposed to, as long as you call it what it is. It might not be the best tool in your strategy-pack---it's only "conjecture drawn from a source other than you" (if you are the one asking for the advice). You know your plan from your point-of-view; getting advice on your plan offers a new set of eyeballs, might reveal some aspect of your plan that you hadn't yet considered.
