Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Virtue is doing it.
There is a great distance between knowing and doing. There are many people that know better than they are living. There are many people with wisdom beyond their years. But not all of these people lead successful and joyous lives.
We all have something in us that we are destined to create and leave as our mark on this world. Out of billions of people across the planet, we all have our uniqueness. We are all different in some way.
Never stop learning because life never stops teaching.
The exceptional skill of being teachable is often a skill that is heavily undervalued. When you are willing to put yourself in the role of a student, you are always going to give yourself room to grow, room to get better.
A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it. A stupid person makes it.
Wisdom is being able to look at a situation and know that it isnt a good situation for you to be in. Where a person with intelligence may know how to fix a problem, a person with wisdom will know how to avoid it altogether.
Sometimes the most valuable lessons come from people who didn't intend to give them.
One of the best ways to learn is through the experience of others. Though this type of learning usually isnt as thorough as learning from our own experiences, the lessons we can learn from others are still able to provide us with a lot of wisdom.
Trust the process. You will discover a lot about yourself through hardship.
When you accept the difficulties that will surely confront you on a mission to live great, while being willing to live a life true to yourself - you will soon discover that this process allows you to blossom.
Give but don't allow yourself to be used. Love but don't allow your heart to be abused. Listen to others but don't lose your own voice.
Be giving, be loving, be understanding, but never lose yourself in the process. When you truly know who you are and you do these things you are then able to give the best of yourself to whomever needs it.
True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful.
Living fully is about loving who you are from the inside to the outside, understanding who you are, what you are passionate about, and where you need to go to continue to develop your life and your passion.
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.
Are you over trying to be a person possessing a look because that life just isn't what you thought it might be? There comes a point in time that everyone is forced to deal with the fact that being who you are is the only way to live honestly.
