Study your relationship with wisdom.
When you practice being wise, you break through limiting beliefs, assumptions, and interpretations. You see, when you accept the way things seem to be, you’re not looking at all the possibilities. Wisdom is not limited to “facts.” Wisdom means trusting the TRUTH within yourself more than you trust what most people believe is TRUE.
The truth is that we are, inherently, all geniuses. Once you can let go of the blocks that hold you back, you release the wisdom and the master within you and live closer to your potential. Wisdom is not a measurement of what you’ve learned. Wisdom is your inner capacity to know without learning. True wisdom allows you to go beyond what you believe is possible, and truly make a difference in the world.
Take a moment to consider how you have been measuring your level of wisdom. What definition has created your reality? What definition would you like to use from now on?
