People mean well, especially friends and family, but they're going to give you bad advice.
This leads to two challenges as you strive to improve your hunting success ratio:
1. Ignore their advice, and stick with the status quo (which probably hasn’t worked so well for you in the past)
2. Try to discern the actually useful good advice, so you don't insulate yourself in a self-deluded sense of grandeur.
In general, good advice pushes you to go farther, or to do things that make you uncomfortable.
P.S. the irony of this post is not lost on me.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,
