The second decision for Success: I will seek Wisdom!

March 18th, 2007 | 1 Comment |

In Andy Andrews’ book “The Travelers Gift,” the second decision for success is to seek wisdom. Wisdom can be measured in many different ways. Are wisdom and knowledge the same thing? I think that they both go hand in hand and not one is greater than the other. Both wisdom and knowledge come with time, but wisdom seems to be the application part. It is the experience that helps you grow in wisdom as learning helps you grow in knowledge.

Always seek wisdom. If you desire success, then you must only let the most praiseworthy and worthwhile things enter into your mind. What you think about, you become. What you allow to enter your mind, you think about whether on a concious or subconcious level. Only let into your mind things that will help build you and your self confidence. Read from good books and literature. Have a library of books and read them often. Only seek information that will move you towards your goal and not away. Either you are moving forward or backward, there is no such thing as standing still. If something isn’t helping you, it is hurting you.

Seek out good friends. Who you hang around, you become. Seek to associate with those who lift you and inspire you. Seek wisdom from the wise and become a servant to others. As you assist others to get what they want, in turn you will get what you want. Choose to associate with those who have the lifestyle you desire and admire. The example Andy uses in his book is: “If I associate with chickens, I will learn to scratch at the ground and squabble over crumbs. If I associate with eagles, I will learn to soar great heights. I am an eagle. It is my destiny to fly.”

Be a servant to others. Seek praiseworthy knowledge. Listen to the counsel of wise men. Choose your friends with care. Seek wisdom!
