In Others’ Words: Be a Wise Guy
Go ahead, be a wise guy.
Sometimes we discredit ourselves. We discount how much we know. Downplay our hard-earned experience. Overlook how we’ve matured. Let’s face it, you can’t go through life without learning a few things, right? And who knows you better than you do?
Have you ever participated in one of those “Write a letter to your younger self” exercises? That’s one way to be a wise guy. Sure, your “younger self” can’t do anything with all that sage advice like listen to people rather than talking at them or remember that the choices you make now will affect you five years from now. But the you of today can listen to your wisdom. And you probably are.
What struggle are you facing today? What problem are you puzzling over? Are you asking other people to help you figure it out? It’s true that asking a lot of advisors gives you wisdom — so long as they are wise advisors. (Proverbs 15:22) But don’t forget to include yourself in that group of advisors. You know who you are. You know your strengths. Your weaknesses. Your abilities.Your goals. Listen to what you have to say.
In Your Words: What bit of advice would you give yourself today?
