Which Tent Do You Live In? – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 730 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 John Maxwell, and it is, “All persons live in one of two tents, content or discontent. In which do you live?”
Which Tent Do You Live In?
The contented person looks beyond circumstances and sees a better day; the discontented person looks at the circumstances and sees no other way.
The contented person understands the purpose for which he was born; the discontented person looks at others’ success with a face filled with scorn.
The contented person has surrendered to a purpose that demands his best; the discontented person has selfishly hoarded much and, grasping for more, will not rest.
The contented person has placed his values on things that will forever last; the discontented person has placed his values on things that will soon be past.
The contented person is anchored to clear goals and is hardly every swayed; the discontented person has no goals to anchor him and is usually dismayed.
The contented person counts his blessings and names them one by one; the discontented person counts others’ blessings and thinks that he will have no fun.
As the Apostle Paul wrote to his protégé Timothy in 1 Timothy 6:7-8, “After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.”
All persons live in one of two tents – content or discontent. In which tent do you live?
