Have you ever been around a leader who immediately impressed you as being full of wisdom?
Was your next impulse to seek wisdom in your own life?
The most effective leaders tend to be known more for their wise leadership than their success since effective leaders are more concerned with their people and outcomes than they are the limelight.
Gaining wisdom is a lifelong journey rather than something you stumble across in your busy life.
Sol says… “Happy is a man who finds wisdom and who acquires understanding,” ~ Proverbs 3:13
Here are four of the ways you can acquire wisdom and live better.
-> Get as much life experience as possible, learning from both the positive and negative outcomes.
-> Spend more time reading by developing a plan using biographies, novels, and nonfiction.
-> Listen more, or as Stephen R. Covey wrote, “Seek first to understand before being understood.
-> Be discerning in your decision making and the actions you take as a result of those decisions, ensuring they align with your beliefs and values.
Charlie “Tremendous” Jones famously taught that “In five years, you will be where you are now except for the books you read and the people you meet.”
Start reading insightful, thought provoking books and meeting wise leaders now to set your direction.
Make it a great day and keep being awesome.
