Reaping Benefits from Expert Advice

Reaping Benefits from Expert Advice

He was an expert, but no one recognized it until after five papers he wrote in 1905.

Let Me Check With My Expert

Of course, no one is surprised you chose to wait on purchasing that set of saws for your workshop because you want to talk to your friend whom you consider an expert. We must have many experts in our life. For me, it is an expert on camping, fishing, or barbecuing. For women, it may be a woman at the nail salon, a vanity mirror reviewer, or the local journalist knowing the best place in town to eat.

What is an expert? Well to define an expert takes a lot more than talking to one, you know. There is a personal expert you go-to for all your buddy problems. An expert weatherman gives you the weather every evening on the news. It’s funny because your buddy expert can “never be wrong,” but a professional football coach (of your favorite team) doesn’t know how to pick a winning team.

The dictionary defines an expert as being anyone who has a unique skill from training. That, Mr. Merriam-Webster, pretty much fits anyone. Your buddy, Lloyd, who is an expert “barbecuer,” or Brenda down at Leslies Nail Salon is an expert in “removing polka dot nail polish.”

What is the Best Football to Buy

You have seen a football thrown thousands of times in games. You have thrown many footballs yourself. Before you buy a football, you prefer talking to an expert about which one he recommends. You can see why people go to ExpertVoice to receive expert advice on purchasing military equipment. They need some expert guidance. Experts who are willing to give their opinions at ExpertVoice can receive some Pro Deals.

Experts sometimes get all the breaks and are treated like royalty because of their vast knowledge. We treat Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan with the greatest respect and awe because of their talent. No doubt Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods are experts in their class. But such experts are hard to reach or even to meet. We end up reading experts books or watch their videos in the hope of learning from them.

Trustworthy Experts

We are amazed by people who have a vast amount of knowledge about something. An expert is considered to be one of life’s assets. Even if we are about to purchase something as simple a thing as a sleeping bag for your youngest son to go on a boy scout campout, you are excited to ask an expert if you are making a right choice.

We don’t want anyone to tell us what to buy, but we want to get the best advice to make our own decision. Everyone has been given advice from someone they admire, but was it the best advice you could have received?

We Listen to Their Expert Advice

When we read the lives of experts, we find out how they arrived at their knowledge and status as experts. It could have been from a childhood desire to be the best basketball player ever like Pete Maravich did as a child.

An expert’s knowledge could have arisen from a childhood injury or injustice. Henry Ford was always “tinkering” with mechanical things, and his father built Henry a shed to continue his tinkering.

Then there are experts like Albert Einstein whom no one would offer a job to at the university but got a job through a friend as a patent clerk. He was an expert, but no one recognized it until after five papers he wrote in 1905.

We enjoy the life of the expert who rises in society. At first, it seems they appear out of the blue sky, but on closer examination, we discover the expert’s life developed along a specific field of interest.

Confident Experts

We trust in the coach whom we ask which football is better before buying one for our son. We know the coach has the experience, training, and accumulated knowledge in his/her field. It is a good thing when we can approach an expert and ask for their advice. The experience of talking to an expert in his field is like walking along a hole with no holes, and we are sure not to fall.

We may have met others who have failed to convince you that they were an expert in their field. There will always be a need for experts who contribute to society by applying their knowledge to specific problems we face.

Without experts in our life, the community would not be able to express its full potential. Even though everyone cannot be the same kind of expert, it seems that almost everyone is an expert in some way that makes a difference and adds more meaning to others.

Identity Magazine is all about guiding women to discover their powers of Self-Acceptance, Appreciation, and Personal Achievement. 

We ask that every contributor and expert answer the Identity questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the current article they have written. In that way, and as a team, we hope to encourage and motivate each other, thus inspiring you to Get All A’s.

What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? Additionally, what are you still working on accepting? Now, we’re not talking about resignation, rather stepping into, embraced, and owned.

That we have to all appreciate the little things and to not take anything for granted.

Appreciation is everything. What have you learned to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? On the other hand OR in contrast, are there elements of who you are that you’re still working on appreciating?

I’m blessed to have a loving family and friends in my life.
