Wisdom creates knowledge. Over the years, I’ve been experiencing new things, finding myself, creating hobbies, discovering talents I thought I never had before. It’s unique and brilliant how we are given these talents we didn’t know we had until we actually start doing them. As I got older, I isolated myself with everyone and started focusing on me. Giving myself time to learn the things that I can wasn't good at. Albert Einstein always engrossed me with one of his famous quotes,” If you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree, it'll live it's whole life believing it is stupid.”
I took the time to actually learn new things about myself. I’ve read plenty of books to bring intellectual understanding such as: “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens”. This book helped me create these unique words of expression and to develope a mature mind. Wisdom itself creates Knowledge. The more your experience and learn from your mistakes you gain knowledge. I always tell people to keep failing, keep making mistakes, and keep learning from them. Not simply to focus on their failures but to focus on the solutions within those problems. We are given life in this world to experience it, to go through phases, and simply to learn from it. For example, grades don’t define intelligence nor knowledge it’s simply a letter that we use to determine our intelligence according to society and the school system. But in this case, I believe wisdom creates knowledge. It gives us an understanding on how things are and how they work . “If you lack wisdom, you simply haven’t experienced life yet.”
A taste a wisdom can simply change your life. Think about all of the things you went through good or bad. But to us as human beings we are faced with many difficulties and struggles. Now put yourself in that position. When you were struggling, broke, depressed, getting evicted, having no one to support you. You're probably thinking your life is going bad when really life is giving a taste of wisdom. The understanding on how you’re able to learn from those problems & struggles. You were struggling, but now you found ways to keep you going and moving forward. You were once broke, now you found ways on how to let money work for you. You were depressed, now you got married had kids and are exploring the world. You had no supporters , now everyone’s trying to follow you so you have people asking you ”How did you do something so small to creating something big?” All of these things happened for a reason! It created wisdom turning into to intellectual understanding. You gained knowledge from those obstacles. You came from nothing to something now you’re productive & inspiring. As the saying goes ”Everything happens for a reason.” Yes, in the end, we’re not perfect. But sometimes we are put in a position where we have to learn to face our problems, or phases, we may go through to become wiser and stronger.
You see real life situations create the wisdom in your life which gains you knowledge. Knowledge is not defined by grades, or the materials you have, it’s the wisdom to get your mindset to create those assets and not liabilities. Your mind is a powerful place. Feed it daily with knowledge, creativity, and love. At the end of the day, you’re all you got. Don’t get caught up with problems or failure, remember those problems and failures are all part of your destination in life. Don't give up when things get hard or get used to when things get easy. Everything comes and goes as it pleases. Remember, you want to be the one standing when everyone is sitting.
