This month, I am doing a daily log challenge on my YouTube channel. Since I always try to include a little lesson or wisdom or thought provoking content in each vlog, I thought that I would try having the vlog take over the blog this month. This is not a permanent change, just an experiment. I'd love your thoughts at the end of the month.
When things get uncomfortable
When it gets awkward
When you’re sick to your stomach
When you can’t sleep at night
When you’re feeling torn
When you worry that everyone hates you
When criticism is coming from all sides
When prayer comes out of desperation
When you want to quit
That’s actually when you’re doing it right.
This fall, I went on my first ever US speaking tour. Below is the presentation that I gave in 17 different cities all over the country. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please share it with a friend.
Wisdom is gained in one of two ways.
It is either discovered, or passed on.
We discover wisdom when we notice or experience something, and allow that thing to deepen our understanding of the world at large.
Wisdom is passed on to us when a mentor, scholar, teacher, parent, or friend offers it to us whether it’s in a book, a lecture, or simply in conversation.
Both are very useful, very different ways to acquire wisdom.
What makes them similar is they both require an openness, humility, and a willingness to learn from the one doing the acquiring.
This blog is about learning how to notice, make, and share your art
