Survivor Affirmation: I Value Wise Counseling

Would You Like to Stay Connected?

I value wise counseling.

In times of confusion, wise words enable me to stay grounded like the anchor on a ship. Instead of being swayed by every wind that comes my way, I seek the advice of experienced people. 

Seeking wisdom keeps me from wandering in the vast ocean of opportunities.

I listen to my trusted advisers and consider their advice. 

I use their ideas as a springboard for forming my own conclusions.

Heeding the words of the wise prevents me from unnecessary pitfalls.

 Life is too short to learn every lesson from personal experiences.
When I learn from the experiences of others,  I save myself time and heartache.

Counseling helps me approach life changes free from fear.

 I ask for counseling for a variety of situations.


From personal to career-related, it does me good to listen to the ideas of others.

When I am deeply involved in a situation and my emotions are high, it can be challenging to think objectively. 

That is why I ask for wise counsel from those around me whom I can trust.

Listening to another person’s point of view helps me evaluate options I may have missed. I receive clarity of mind when I accept the observations of others.

I have the right and responsibility to seek out advice from wise people.
 In the end, though, I must choose for myself the path I will take.

Today, I chose to seek out wise counsel.

I appreciate those who love me enough to tell me things I need to hear, even if I would rather not hear them.

Talking with Myself:
1. When was the last time I sought advice?
2. Who can I turn to for wise counsel?
3. Why is it important to evaluate various points of view before making a final decision?
