Many people name drop connections. "I know So-and-So very well. I have their cell number." And? Do you listen to receive their wisdom? Do you honor their attention and investment in you with application? Can they see the difference you claim they are making in your life? Are you saying, "Thank You?"
It takes humility to invite people to weigh in on your decisions. Experience is a teacher. Wisdom is a scholar. It is humility, not stupidity, to ask before you decide. If you want someone to always agree with you, talk in the mirror. If you will not humble yourself to hear, stop asking people to speak & mentor you. Trust me, people have at least other, at best....better, things to do.
I have a multitude of counselors...and I ask LOTS of questions. They help me redirect my attention. They teach me which questions weigh more in life. Academic tests ascribe varied point values to questions. Life tests ascribe energy values. My sagacious circle often counsels me to skip issues that I would resolutely cling to solve. "That's not important right now." I wasted so much energy in my twenties concerned with popular opinion over purpose. I now know better. The issues I would ignore, they encircle to address. "Now is time to deal with THIS." I trust both their insights and intercession; therefore, I bend my will in humility.
