Wisdom Doesn’t Come From a Text Book

“Good people are good because they’ve come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know”

William Saroyan 1908 - 1981, American Author, Dramatist


As I see it . . . . . . .

Wisdom doesn’t come from a text book


We acquirer wisdom throughout our life and many of the lessons will come from the school of hard knocks.


The wisdom comes from doing and yes it comes from our failures and setback. Wisdom is not cheap; we pay for it through your life experiences.  Some of the lesson will be very costly or painful for you but the lessons become invaluable resource on your success journey.


Your lessons from the past creates the insight for the future and armed with that information you can move into future with the wisdom and greater confidence to do what has to be done successfully.


Wisdom comes in looking at the conditions that come into your life and in using good judgment to make the best of the conditions without them reacting.


Wisdom doesn’t come from a text book and your life is not lived by a script. You live a life of changing conditions. Your wisdom will create an understanding that your success journey will not always be on a smooth path and that your life will become a series of adjustments.


Our wisdom gives us the insight to navigate the twists and turns in your life and to use your life experiences to show us the way and to become more productive in the future. Wisdom doesn’t come from a text book . . . . it’s created from your life experiences.

I agree, wisdom does not come from a text book, it comes from experiences we have.
