Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 995 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Character Development – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 995 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Helen Keller, and it is, “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved.”
While all of us desire to achieve success with ease, this is not possible. Success can only be achieved through ambition, strength, and development of character. Development of that character comes through experiences which are difficult. The trials and sufferings of life should strengthen our soul, refresh our resolve, and give us the inspiration and ambition to keep moving forward.
It is through these times that we must learn the lessons that life is teaching us and also learn to enjoy our journey, regardless of how difficult it may appear at the moment. If you truly desire success, then you will be willing to accept the trials and sufferings that are part of the very path to success.
If Helen Keller, who was blind, could not hear, and was barely able to speak audibly, realized these truths then each of us must resolve to persevere toward success, regardless of the limitations that we may have personally. It is possible to achieve success if we are willing to traverse the difficult path that lies ahead of us each day. This lesson is also taught to us in James 1:2-5, “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
