VACUUM: Do you operate in a VACCUM? I do…admittedly… too often. It’s not good way to do business…either. While I have been successful ‘doing it my way,’ I KNOW that I could have improved the results… by seeking, and using… input from others; more qualified.
I’m suggesting that while I have work very well by myself… there are, other, sometimes… better ways of accomplishing the same thing. Sure, I delegate, assign, promote, divide, and all that… as well… But, I seek, mostly my own counsel.
So YES… it’s that creepy SOB… that I stare at in the mirror every morning… he is the real culprit. My better advice …is to seek counsel from every source; particularly the ones who “hold-back,” the silent ones… the least obvious. Often, it is they who have the solution you’re in search of…but, because of some ‘knee-jerk-reason’…their input was not solicited, or listed to.
The great man of WISDOM, himself… King Solomon tells us in… Proverbs 19:20-21 …says: “Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
Granted, we have been ‘gifted through the Holy Spirit’ with an oversupply of skillsets… but realize… one may be a ‘very gifted’ brain … but know ‘very little’ about investing in the stock market. This is why the very gifted financial advisors are available… but just a phone call away. Most of my skillsets are in the ‘same family’ of financial/construction/real development and business.
When I get outside of my comfort zone… I ask for help.
When it comes to my ‘spiritual life’… I CONSULT the very best resource available…. The BIBLE. I don’t rely on my own skills, my own interpretation… or my own wisdom. I defer to the EXPERTS. I also… call out to the Lord, Jesus, Christ. Help me Lord, to be a better Father, Husband, and Friend. Help me to be an instrument of Your Peace and a conduit of Your Love.
…Blessings to all…as we seek DIVINE WISDOM …cjlb…10/26/2017
