It’s useful to search for wisdom in the yellowed pages of works by well-known sages. It helps to be informed about perennial truths that are as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago. But there’s no substitute for wisdom you uncover for yourself. The depth of personal understanding that comes from experience is more relevant to your life than entire libraries filled with works by well-recognized philosophers. The wisdom you gain by contemplating how difficult experiences can serve and evolve you is the best kind. Don’t let those opportunities slip by.

Look for the gift.
