Advice is a very tricky thing. It can be both positive or negative, good or bad, helpful or useless. But getting advice means that person cares for you enough to try and make your life easier. Everyone receives and gives advice often, but they are two very different things. Sometimes giving advice seems to be much easier than receiving it.

So, here are 11 pieces of advice you may hear that you should absolutely apply.

1. Do what feels right

Listen to your gut. Don't let outside distractions change what you think is right or what is best for you.

2. Always take time for yourself

Taking time for yourself is crucial to knowing who you really are. It gives your mind and body a time to restore and relax.

3. Life will never be fair

Once you have fully accepted this, it will truly change your view. Life will never, ever be fair and others will always have something you don't and there is nothing wrong with that.

4. Never assume the worst

Never, never, never! You never know what the future will hold, and going into something with a negative attitude will only make it worse. It could be the best thing that has happened to you.

5. Be patient

Patience is key to just about everything in life. Patience will set you apart from others in this world.

6. Trust your gut

If your gut is telling you this is a bad idea, it probably is. Intuition is almost always correct.

7. Love yourself before loving others

If you don't truly love yourself, it is impossible to fully give your love to someone else. Self-love is the key to success.

8. Never give up on what you want

Just because your dream seems far off, doesn't mean that they are impossible to reach. Work hard for what you want to achieve.

9. Pay attention

Always be aware, the more you pay attention in life the more you will learn.

10. Don't worry about what other people think

This is really the downfall of human society. Everyone is so focused on others opinions that they loose who they truly are. Be yourself because there is nobody out there just like you.

11. Always believe in yourself

What you see is what you get. When you truly believe in yourself confidence will show, and confidence will get you anywhere you want to be.

Advice can come in a variety of ways, but if you've ever heard these pieces of advice, take them.

Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
