The Role of Wisdom in Personal Growth and Development


 The Role of Wisdom in Personal Growth and Development

Wisdom is the highest and most desirable personal growth skill anyone can have. It not only enables you to make better judgements, but it also makes you feel more confident and prepared for any challenges in life. The power of wisdom is such that it goes beyond knowledge or understanding; it infuses a person's life with calmness and confidence — these virtues are sought after by leaders and business people alike as well as the simple man living on the street.

In this article, we will define what wisdom encompasses, discuss its importance, how to cultivate it in our lives, different ways of learning wisdom through everyday activities, and how others use this skill to achieve their goals.

Wisdom was first defined by Plato as "the knowledge of what is true and the power of giving a reason for what is true."
The term has been searched for ever since, but can never be fully understood and explained. However, it certainly exists, which means that there must be something to learn in order to grow in wisdom.

Before delving into the theory of wisdom itself, we first need to examine the facets that make up a person's personality or character: confidence (courage), gratitude (humility), compassion (benevolence), self-esteem (self-respect) and self-value (respect).  Each facet is crucial because they are all interrelated. What is interesting is that wisdom can be used to overcome even the most detrimental personality traits like arrogance and greed.
Where there are positive attributes, wisdom will show you how to utilize them to the fullest potential. For example, if you show humility, you'll learn how to forgive others and extend them a helping hand. At this point, it would be prudent to define wisdom because it not only causes a change in your character or personality but also affects the way you approach life itself.
In "The Work of Byron Katie," there are four main aspects of wisdom that are worth noting: wisdom  (abundance), love (compassion), responsibility and service (sincerity) and presence or non-attachment (diligence).
Wisdom is the same as intelligence, but wisdom brings you to life while intelligence has a negative connotation. Wisdom is a way of knowing; a way of making decisions. It is about getting clarity on choices you have to make in your life. In contrast, intelligence influences our decisions for us, which often results in confusion and resulting in making bad decisions.  This is why we make this distinction in our definition.
Wisdom is also an intuitive capacity of knowing what others want to hear and what they don't. It can be contrasted with pretending or acting in a way that others want us to be. This is why wisdom gives you the courage and confidence to do what you know needs to be done or said without having to ask anyone else's permission, as long as it is right for you.
The next aspect of wisdom that needs to be discussed is how we learn it. As human beings, we are born with the capacity for wisdom and we learn through life experiences. This polyvalence (many facets) means that wisdom can be learned in many ways (through our own experiences or through other people's experiences). The ways in which it can be learned are not limited to the four qualities mentioned earlier. In fact, there are many other methods that will help us develop wisdom.
Wisdom is the ultimate goal of any successful human being. It is also a characteristic that few have been able to achieve in their lives because of a lack of discipline and self-control. Realizing what you want and doing what you want without straying from your goals is simply a matter of self-discipline.
In every aspect of life, we must try to learn how to be more careful with our decisions. What will be the repercussions of our choices? Will it help or will it hinder us? The self-help industry is littered with books on this subject, but one in particular that comes to mind is "The Four Agreements," by Don Miguel Ruiz.
This book starts from the premise that humans have four agreements with one another (I, me and mine, or ego) and that these agreements are how we misunderstand each other. Most human beings perceive themselves as victims and are constantly working to satisfy the needs of the ego instead of looking at what needs to be done in order for everyone involved to reach a complete state of happiness.
The second agreement is that we are to live in harmony with our surroundings. If we do this, we will find happiness in the life that is given to us, but if we are too attached to our wants and desires, they will harm our relationships with others.
In early 2017, I found another book which made me rethink my views of the world and every decision I had taken. This was "Loving What Is," by Byron Katie. If you know someone who appears to be lonely or sad, remember that there is nothing wrong with them; instead they just have not found what it is they have been missing in their lives. Love will always find its way into your life if you are open to it.
Wisdom is about reminding yourself of the present. It is about being content with your life because you are aware of how much you have in the present. Wisdom is what gets you to stop and smell the roses even when things are not going well. It makes us realize that it doesn't matter how many times we fall down; we can get up no matter what.
We are most happy when we are helping others or being a team player, and so we should always remember this. This will definitely lead to a more peaceful and harmonious life.
It is important to note that wisdom cannot be taught. Wisdom is a quality that comes from within your heart. It is the result of the experiences you have endured and your attitude towards what has happened to you in the past or what may happen in the future.
It takes courage, bravery and humility to change our lives for the better. Many people don't have these qualities, but remember success does not come overnight; it takes a lot of time and effort, but in this world everything you do is worth it because you are living each day fully aware of the moments we all take for granted.

Conclusion : 
Too often we make decisions based on our fears, which can prevent us from achieving our goals or from finding happiness in life. We make these decisions because we have never learned how to make real choices for ourselves. We tend to think that what we feel is what everyone else is feeling and that if we take a certain action, it will affect everyone else in the same way it affects us. Wisdom reminds us of the present moment because this is all there really is - there is no past and no future, only now. Wisdom helps us realize that our fears are simply false notions. Wisdom also changes your perspective on life and everything around you, including yourself.
