I am of an extreme opinion that most advice doesn't work at all. In the end you just have to figure things out on your own and in your dark moments or when facing difficult decisions no story from Tim or speech from Tony Robbins will be of any guidance. So I agree with you here. However, reading about other people's experiences can still be enriching, for the overall outlook and understanding other people's journeys. One exception though - I personally don't give two f**s about someone's journey to making however many dollars on Medium in whatever months on whatever article. Those are truly full of shit
