Has ever been a scenario where you proved quite a good advisor to others but when the same situation haunted you, the same task seemed quite hard to you? The reason being, “It’s easier said than done.” Majorly humans have proved to be great advisors than great preachers. This article will tell you the psychology behind this behaviour and why it is easier to make decisions for someone else.
In life there are going to ample of situations when people would need your support and advice for that matter. We humans tend to be great advisors. We are always very keen on giving people advices as all they ask is for our suggestions. We are quite good at delivering suggestions as they do not majorly concern us. The reason behind this attitude is that in the end we are not the ones who are at the receiving end. We are not the ones who will have to face the consequences. Hence, the ease that comes along while giving out a suggestion is what makes it quite easy for us to make decisions for someone else.
I still remember those days, when I used to have sleepless nights by the virtue of that one decision that I was afraid to take regarding my career choice. I wanted to pursue assignment writing help professionally. I always had this knack for this type of work since I was a child and I wanted to consider this option professionally as this would not even fetch me a lot of money but also I would be among those few lucky people who get to do what they love. At that time, I was into an IT job and was earning quite a hefty amount. But that wasn’t something I had a passion for. So at that time, I had sleepless nights while deciding to accept the transition that I am going to bring into my life by the virtue of the career choice that I am going to take. Hence, the onus of the decision totally lied on me and I was the receiver as well. At that time, one thought came to my mind that changed my perspective completely with respect to the saying,” It is easier said than done”.
Few years back, one of my friends had a similar dilemma and I was so fluent and at ease while giving the advice to him. Same thing when struck me few years down the line, I could not take decision for myself. Reason being, I was the one who would be affected by the decision that I would take. I was at the receiving end and hence would be the one facing the consequences. That day I realised that we humans are quite hypocrite when it comes to walk the talk. We are quite good at preaching others big-big things but when the same situation haunts us, we tend to give up. Having said that, this is what human behaviour is and this attitude is quite a natural one. There is not right or wrong in this behaviour. But having an understanding of this attitude will definitely make us a more mature person. Good luck!
