Wisdom can be found in the most unlikely places.


Recommended Posts

This video from Motivation District provides viewers with lessons for everyday life. This video teaches that the combination of knowledge and wisdom makes a true impact on those around us. Also, simplicity can be the ultimate source of wisdom. 

Some of the impactful lessons taught throughout the video are listed below: 

  • Schooling should not get in the way of your education.
  • Challenge yourself to be the best you can be, every day.
  • You won’t have an issue if you aim high and miss, but you will have a problem if you aim low and miss. 
  • It’s better to be an hour early than a minute late. 
  • We are what we repeatedly do. 
  • Be tough, but remember to be kind. 
  • Your servants’ towels should be bigger than your ego. 
  • Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.
  • Pride is the burden of a foolish person. 
  • If you are going to do a job, do it right. 
  • Good enough isn’t good enough if it can be better. Better isn’t better if it can be best. 
  • Wisdom will come to you through unlikely sources. 
  • If you are struggling, remember that rock bottom can be a great foundation on which to grow. 

These lessons come from the narrator’s father. While short and sweet, these impactful statements can serve as everyday mantras as we navigate through life. 

One of my favorite anecdotes in this video was the story about a highly successful basketball coach. Despite his success, he still found time to sweep the basketball court. Taking responsibility for your surroundings and doing the small things attracts the people who you want in your life. The narrator encourages his audience to carry this sentiment with them. To live through humility and accountability, we can start to surround ourselves with like-minded and inspired individuals.
