Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
You gain wisdom either through pain or through mentors – choose mentors.
About twenty-five years ago I started playing golf with a gentleman that was a good season of about 15 years older than me. He was a successful professional and enjoyed the comforts of a prosperous career. His children were entering their teenage years. I was able to see him navigate their experiences with wisdom and at times very difficult circumstances. Not only did he teach me the basics of golf – a game that I really enjoy – he mentored me in many other ways. I learned from his experience.
That’s the beauty of walking with someone who has experience in life that you haven’t had yet – you prosper at their expense.
Now, I’m at the other end of the spectrum – helping younger men navigate the challenges of life – hoping to help them avoid some of the pains that come from bad experiences.
Remember:Choose a mentor - gain some wisdom - walk with the wise. Click To Tweet
