Every once in a while you may need to run an idea , opportunity, or a situation by someone else. Be open to using wise counsel to help through challenging times. Asking for help or looking outside your self for answers is a sign of strength, not of weakness and it also shows your willingness to grow and learn to your family and friends. Understand that if someone thinks differently than you or they see something that you may not see, that that point could be valid and may be a glaring hole or a big opportunity for you to improve. Seeking out and listening to wise counsel is just another way to model the way.
