Think about all the times you were afraid to do something – maybe you are afraid right now? What if I could show you how to conquer fear in your life to where it never can keep you from doing what you need to do?
Someone once said that wisdom is when the actions you take today turn out to be the right actions later. My work as a life coach revolves around the concept of Essential Practical Wisdom, which is the learned behavior of knowing when to act that flows from your intuition.
My upcoming book, Essential Practical Wisdom for Everyday Living, shows you step by step how the right actions are born through right thinking. Any person can know what to do and not do it. A wise, practical person will act intentionally always endeavoring to do the right thing at the right time. The key is to do something. Albert Einstein said that nothing happens until something moves. You cannot develop essential practical wisdom in a bubble. You have to move in the arena of everyday, mundane, life.
Essential Practical Wisdom is a powerful concept that can revolutionize your thinking. To understand Essential Practical Wisdom as a concept, let’s first look at a familiar proverb.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. – Proverbs 4:7
If something is principal it is most important. We should pursue the Wisdom of God as a priority in our life. It is essential.
“Principal” means first in time, place, order, and rank.” We may have many things to do but something must be first in rank, something must be the most important. In other words, principal wisdom is essential wisdom
“To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong” -Joseph Chilton Pearce
The secret to making good, quality decisions that positively affect your life is wisdom. Wisdom is not a word widely used in today’s popular culture. Many consider it old fashion, and some think it too religious a word for everyday practical usage.
I believe wisdom is not only relevant but very practical and essential. Life is simply a series of decisions. Practical wisdom is learning to make good ones in your everyday life. When faced with more than one choice you can choose the right course of action that will bring you the desired results in your life, or you can proceed down the road of instant regret. Imagine what a difference this skill will make for you.
Some dictionaries list knowledge as a synonym of wisdom, but this could not be further from the truth. Wisdom and knowledge are two different things. What is the difference between wisdom and knowledge? It is the difference between thinking and acting upon your thoughts and learning to make the right decisions
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable. Wisdom knows that you don’t put one in a fruit salad.
Many times, our decisions seem right to us but they are wrong and lead us away from the will of God instead of into it. Too often our decisions are derived from so-called knowledge instead of spiritual insight. They seem right but they are wrong.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply our knowledge. Willing is not enough; we must do what we will in our lives. Essential Practical Wisdom puts you in motion so you are able to live to your full potential.
