“He who consults with men of understanding, shows his development…” Bijhar ul Anwar vol 75 p 105
Throughout my life, I have faced many challenges and obstacles. During those times, I used to believe that I could handle everything on my own, without seeking any help from others. However, I realized the importance of seeking consultation when I found myself stuck and unsure about my next steps.
Consultation is an essential process that can help you make informed decisions and move forward in the right direction. Seeking advice from experts, mentors, or even family members can provide you with new insights and ideas that you may not have thought of on your own.
Here are a few reasons why seeking consultation is so important:
- Gain new perspectives: By seeking consultation, you can hear out a point of view that you didn’t think of on your own. This can help you broaden your horizons and gain new insights that you may not have otherwise considered.
- Weigh pros and cons: Getting multiple opinions can help you better weigh the pros and cons of a decision. It can help you identify potential risks and opportunities that you may have overlooked.
- Avoid mistakes: Seeking consultation can help you avoid making mistakes that you may have made on your own. Experts and mentors can provide you with valuable guidance and advice based on their own experiences.
- Build relationships: Consulting with others can help you build strong relationships with people who share similar interests and goals. It can also help you expand your network and connect with new people.
- Learning opportunities: Consulting with others can be a great learning opportunity. You can learn from the experiences and knowledge of others, and apply it to your own life and work.
Seeking consultation is not a sign of weakness or lack of knowledge. Instead, it is a sign of strength and maturity. By seeking advice and guidance from others, you are showing that you are willing to learn, grow, and improve.
