33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

Wisdom is an oft-valued, yet rarely seen trait across the world. Cultures, families, and even businesses revere it, but how many of your own friends would you call wise? I know I wouldn’t ascribe this trait to hundreds of my friends, but I deeply value the friends I do attach it to.

This is not to make people feel guilty for being unwise; it’s simply true that wisdom remains an elusive characteristic. As the adage goes, wisdom often comes with experience, and experience often comes with age.

Many young people are told by older people that they can’t attain certain things in life yet simply because of their age. Generational differences can cause tension at times, but the truth is that wisdom can be attained at any age — you just need to be looking for it. At times, this requires more effort than we might like to admit.

It’s difficult to find wisdom nuggets in the modern-day media landscape. Part of this is because so much media is structured in the direction of entertainment rather than edification. The desire for fun, frivolity, and limitless indulging has grossly overtaken that of earnest self improvement in many cases.

These days, you truly have to fight to uncover wisdom; it won’t be waiting for you at every turn. There is some validity to the idea that wisdom takes time to obtain, grow, and share. However, as you pack your life full of experiences, relationships, choices, and goals, wisdom will slowly come knocking at your door. It’s simply your job to open the door when she does knock.

Despite some considering wisdom to be an impractical, “archaic” trait, wisdom remains as powerful as ever. If there were a way to hack the process of becoming wiser, would you want to utilize such a process? Such is the impetus for this post, a hand-picked collection of 33 quotes full of pure wisdom.

Wisdom regularly takes on different faces. It can be the teacher providing some stern insight during a moment of discipline, the diehard friend sharing encouragement during a time of sadness, or even the grandfather or grandmother offering sagacious observations about the choices in daily life. All of these are perfect analogs of some of the quotes you’ll see below.

Looking for that concise bit of truth? Have a friend who needs some power-packed encouragement? Are you simply a knowledge junkie who’s always on the hunt for pure wisdom? Wherever you find yourself this week, dive right into this quote collection and enjoy the wisdom within.

                                                                    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                                                                    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                                                                    Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

                                                                    But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

                                                                    No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

                                                                    1. Relax as You Meditate

                                                                    A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

                                                                    Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

                                                                    2. Practice Daily Affirmations

                                                                    Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

                                                                    What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

                                                                    1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
                                                                    2. Use present tense (I have)
                                                                    3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
                                                                    4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

                                                                    Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

                                                                    Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
                                                                    My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

                                                                    You can find more examples here: 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life

                                                                    Begin practicing these positive thinking tips right now. And I wish you continued empowerment and growth on your positive thinking journey.
