How to acquire wisdom in our lives?There are many things like education, skills, work exposure, good manners, etiquette etc that we acquire in our lives. Most of the people acquire these things in the traditional ways. But when it comes to wisdom then there is no common or easy way to acquire this unique entity. It is a common belief that wisdom comes with age but it is not necessary that everyone who grows up becomes wise. Only a few are gifted with this great attribute.
There are no short cuts to acquire wisdom but there are some measures which if taken seriously cn help a person to acquire wisdom in a long run. First of all, a person should be hard working, should have affinity for taking up responsibilities in life. Second thing is that one has to learn from ones past errors and mistakes and correct them in future endeavours. Third thing is that one should not take a decision in haste and consider all the pros and cons before taking a step forward. Next thing is that one should learn to be cordial, cooperative, and helpful to the fellow beings. The last thing is that one should take decisions based on the logic and rationality rather then based on religion or caste and creed or social pressures or political consideration.
I strongly believe that if a person learns above things, practices them in his life, and remains in the positive territories with a creative mind, he or she should be able to acquire wisdom in a long run.
