What Path Are You On? – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 677 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little 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 Adlai Stevenson who said, “We can chart the path to the future clearly and wisely only when we know the path that has led to the present.”
What Path Are You On?
While we cannot and should not live in the past, nor long for “the good old days, “if we are to wisely plan for the future, we need to know what path brought us to where we are today. Our past is our teacher, and if we do not learn its lessons, especially the lessons of failure, then we are doomed to repeat them in the future. We should not only learn the lessons from our own path if we desire to be a truly wise person but also learn the lessons from those who journey with us on our trek of life. Yes, experience is the best teacher, but only if we remember the lessons and do not repeat them. The first time you fail or make a mistake it is learning. If you repeat the exact same mistake, it is a choice.
The Apostle Peter wrote to us in his 1st letter 1 Peter 1:13-14, “So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then.”
