I have been in business for a good seven years now and I am starting to feel like I am becoming savvy. I still of course am learning every day and have been building my wisdom daily.
What got me thinking about this is how I come across to people. It was raining, I was on my way to the gym and did I have an umbrella? Well no, but I had a gym towel that I wore over my head. It really did protect me from rain (believe it or not).
As I investigated my phone for the potential of a great a selfie, I instantly though that I looked of ‘Jesus’. I totally love Jesus and thought it was funny, and like what I normally do, I uploaded it to Facebook, LinkedIn and even Twitter.
Even though I am a Star Wars buff (except some of the latest films), I never even thought of Jedi Knight let alone Jedi Master.
Everyone commented comparing me to Obi-Wan Kenobi, which I know is of course jesting, however for people to even put me into the same league as Obi-Wan was a great compliment.
I think a key reason that people instinctively did this was because of the wise lessons I have learned. What I mean by ‘wise lessons’ is learning the right thing from certain situations. Let’s say I make a mistake, which happens! There are many lessons I learn. A low value dumb lessons is “I am an idiot” or let’s say “it’s someone else’s fault”. That will not make me wise and is moronic at best.
A high value lesson is more specific in relation to a deeper understanding of the issue, why I went wrong and of course how to win for next time. It would be more like “I need to slow down next time”, “I need to be more tenacious next time” or something more powerful like that.
My advice and thinking? When stuff goes against you or for you, learn the right lesson. Think about things in a positive, empowering and critical way so you can win big next time.
It’s not wisdom, it’s the right type of wisdom if you get what I mean ????
Love your work, thank you for the read and thank you friends for putting me in the same category as one of the best Jedi Masters of all time!
