There is wisdom in a multitude of counselors the Bible says. "Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed." Proverbs 15:22. People who have tunnel vision, those who are locked into one way of thinking, are likely to miss the right road because they have closed their minds to any new options. We need the help of those who can enlarge our vision and broaden our perspective. Seek the advice of a professional and those who have a wealth of experience.
