Resolve not to be foolish today.

Resolve not to be foolish today.SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
The wisest man on earth once said
"My son do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgement and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go your way in safety and your foot will not stumble."

I think we can all agree that wisdom is very important and that being foolish is- a foolish thing to be. And I don't think there has ever been a society like ours where knowledge is freely available to those who want it. So if being foolish is foolish then everyone should aim to be wise.

Do you?

Why aren't you seeking wisdom? Are you too busy not to be foolish? Doesn't that just sound- foolish? So today resolve to learn something- resolve to discover a gem that might just change your life and your world if you apply it.

How do you do it?

Read a book, buy inspirational teachings, watch a documentary, think back in your life- the things that older people have said to you… All of these things could be sources of unimaginable insight. Why not benefit from the experiences that others have had, instead of being dead set on figuring it all out on your own? Why go through the pain and hardship of it all when the lessons are available in a paperback or tape in the library for FREE? Why fight with co-workers instead of watching a documentary on how lionesses apply teamwork? Why be so set on ruining your marriage instead of listening to great aunt Margret's tips?

Of course not everything you hear, read or watch is going to be good advice. But you should at least be open to hearing advice. We all know someone who things they know it all- so before they even listen to what you're saying- they've already got a reason for not listening to it.

In closing, the wisest man on earth once said "The wise store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin." YOU DON'T KNOW IT ALL. Don't be foolish… seek wisdom.

Resources I advise you to check out- include;

The book of Proverbs in the bible.
Even if you aren't a believer, you will benefit from the wisdom in Solomon's words. I don't think there's a question earth which can't be fundamentally answered in Proverbs. There is also a podcast that goes through the book of proverbs in a year in itunes called … and the link to the website that hosts it is…
The art of war by Sun Tzu. you can get a free copy on gutenburg.org at the following link.
National Geographic and Animal planet if possible watch a documentary on how Eagles choose their mates if you're having marriage problems, for teamwork- watch the lionesses strut their stuff and when it comes to adaptability you may be interested in finding a documentary on albino animals.
Your mom-father-grandmother-grandfather-and anyone else old enough to say "When I was younger…" you'd be surprised at what good advice comes from these people and because they have a vested interest in you- so they love you. And if there's anyone who you should listen to- it's someone who loves you.
Podcasts, I there are tons of gems in itunes, personally I subscribe to, Joyce Meyer, Daily Audio Bible, Joel Osteen, Bigg Success, Zig Ziglar, Sales guy's quick and dirty tips, Real secrets of the top 20%, Internet business mastery, business week. Take your pick, there's unlimited knowledge on itunes and other poscast sites.

Resolve2day not to be foolish. Trust me, you’ll feel like a much better person at the end of this day.
