A wise man can see more from the bottom of a well than a fool can from a mountain top. – Anonymous
Life gives us various opportunities. As we grow up, various experiences shape us and make us who we are. These experiences teach us a lot – at times much more than what textbooks could ever teach. What matters is what we make of these teachings and learning.
A wise person, who wants to make the best of his life, will understand the learning and apply it in life to make it more meaningful. Someone who acts foolishly will reject them and find a way to find faults in various things.
Thus, we must understand that how your life turns out depends on your attitude towards life itself. It depends on how meaningful you want your life to be and your quest towards it.
All of us are blessed with similar abilities. It depends on us to make the best of our blessings. A wise man does just that while a foolish man shuns it. Even in the toughest of times, a wise man will try to find a solution and keep up hope.
It is a difficult thing to do, but he knows that it is the best thing to be done. He will try hard to come out of the tough situation and will help himself to do that the best way. A foolish man on the other hand, even when offered the best opportunities will tend to find faults or complaints.
It is thus on us to decide who we want to become and the company we would like to keep. As a wise person, if we see someone else making foolish decisions, we must go ahead and help them. But if the other person does not realize the problem and does not address it, then even the best help can be of no effect.
Thus, we should know and constantly be vigilant of what path we are taking in life and course correct so that we are wise and make the best of life.
