I just re-watched one of my favorite TedTalks on “Practical Wisdom.”
Such a great reminder that what we need to be successful is NOT more knowledge…
We need practical wisdom – the ability to take what we already know and apply it to real life situations.
AND then follow that up with:
- Observing what happens (non-judgmentally)
- Learning from what worked and what didn’t
- Improving the process
- Coming up with a game plan for next steps
- Doing it all over again and again – practical wisdom in action!
That’s how we hone our professional and leadership skills into long-term success.
But that’s not all… (You also get a free set of steak knives – just kidding!)
What happens if you power up your (human) practical wisdom with Divine Wisdom? You get massive EXPANSION and GROWTH.
I just posted these Scripture verses in our Facebook group for Busy Christian Professionals, which seems relevant here, too.
“Resplendent and unfading is [God’s] wisdom,
and she is readily perceived by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her.
She hastens to make herself known in anticipation of their desire;
Whoever watches for her at dawn shall not be disappointed,
for he shall find her sitting by his gate.
For taking thought of wisdom is the perfection of practical wisdom,
and whoever for her sake keeps vigil
shall quickly be free from care.”
- Wisdom 6: 12-16
Once you have mastered the basic skills and competencies of your profession or field of expertise, the most important thing you can do is to bring a present-centered and God-centered awareness into everything you do.
And when you add onto that present centered awareness a consistent practice of returning to God’s healing presence, action, and wisdom within – through a daily centering practice – you have stacked all the wisdom of the universe in favor of your growth, expansion, and success.
It’s not really that complicated. But most of us need lots of reminders and support to do this consistently over a long period of time so that we stick with it long enough to see the results pay off…in God’s time and in God’s way.
That’s exactly why I started offering these free, no-B.S. Breakthrough Sessions…
- To help clients get total clarity on what obstacles are preventing this wisdom stack from lining up in their personal and professional lives.
- To get clear on what it would look like to tap into centering for wisdom every single moment of every day (and stay on track for a lifetime)
If that kind of honest conversation and support sounds like something you want, then click the link below and let’s talk!
You’ll be taken to a calendar page where you can sign up for a time that works for you, and then to a very short set of questions to prepare for our call. Then, just answer your phone at the time you selected.
Trust me, it’s a wise choice (do you see what I did there?). But click soon ‘cuz there’s only one of me and time slots are limited.
