There are 8 things that wise people don’t do.

  1. They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.
  2. They don’t worry about trying to please everyone.
  3. They don’t run away from their problems.
  4. They don’t focus their energy on things they can’t control.
  5. They don’t believe the world owes them anything.
  6. They don’t give up when they fail.
  7. They don’t pretend to have all the answers.
  8. They don’t expect immediate results.

Wisdom is not something we are born with. It’s usually forged over a long period of time.  Usually it’s the unpleasant things in life that teach it to us. This weekend I am preaching about the Hunger for Wisdom. Show up with a big appetite!

See you Sunday,

P.S. The idea for this post came from a book by Amy Morin. You might benefit from reading 13 Things Mentally Strong People Do. I found the book researching the characteristics of tough-minded leaders.
