What’s the Best Advice You’ve Ever Received?

All of us are where we are today partly because of our own efforts and partly because of the advice, guidance, influence and inspiration provided by others.  At Voyage we have the good fortune of connecting with so many of the city’s hidden gems – from entrepreneurs and creatives to athletes, researchers and more.  We asked them a simple, but important question: what is the best advice, personal or professional, that you’ve ever received?

Jeff Beacher – CEO/Founder of Beacher Media Group

Best advice “Listen to your gut and not your mind. Your soul. If you’re a good person with good intentions your gut will always guide you to make the write decision. That’s God speaking to you.

If you ask people’s advice on anything, say 10 people, 4 will say one thing, 4 the opposite and 2 won’t care. Don’t listen to others opinions.

The best advice I have received recently is this quote by Jimi Hendrix, “I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.”

Tori Servin Meskin BSN RNC-NIC NICU Nurse Blogger

The best advice I have received: “”Never give up Pumpkin.”” – Papa Servin. I had a particularly hard time getting into nursing school! I wasn’t a perfect student & achieving my goals of becoming a nurse seemed to take longer….I always had the harder journey! So my advice to new nurses, RT’s, MDs, etc, is NEVER GIVE UP! You will find a way. My path was different than I originally planned, however it all worked out, better than I had anticipated! Cheers & Healthcare On!

WZRD an American record producer and DJ from LA

The best advice I’ve gotten is to fully believe in yourself and whatever it is you want to do in your life. You might feel like no one wants to help you in your career or industry, but the truth is that there are people out there that want to help you but they just don’t know who you are yet. So you have to stand tall, stand out and rise above the crowd. At the end of the day you have to put in the work and be patient because the best things in life are the things we work hard to achieve.

Private chef, Wellness Coach

Don’t change who you are to make people like you. There will always be people that don’t like the energy you emulate, no matter how amazing you are. The right people will be attracted to the authentic you, not the manufactured version of you. The more vulnerable and authentic you are to your purest self, the more you will attract the RIGHT people into your life!

My 6th grade teacher once whispered into my ear, after I had turned in a less-than-stellar assignment: “Tommy, never half-ass anything.” I’ve taken this advice to heart in both my personal and professional life — you either go bold or go home.

Ron Scolesdang – MMA Fighter

If you want something bad enough, you’ll make it happen. Don’t stop until you get it. If you don’t get it, then you didn’t want it bad enough.

Katrina Stuart – Singer & Influencer

I think one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received would be that if you’re not working or trying to better yourself every second, then you’re falling behind because there is someone out there that is working every second of every day to make their dreams come true.

Elycia Rubin – Published Author, Journalist, Content Creator

Just because someone (or even many people) says no doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. If you truly believe in yourself and your work / idea, keep going. It just takes one yes. And, today we have so many opportunities to produce/create/fulfill our visions via new, innovative technologies – you can make it happen on your own without approval from someone else. Perseverance and grit are essential.
