If you’ve been around the block of life, you’d realized something ridiculous, in that its not what was said that matters, its what who said it that matters.
This brought me to a terrifying conclusion.
Most people don’t know value when it stares them right in their bloody faces. Not because the item or whatever it may be in question is not valuable, rather it is because people need to be told what is valuable rather than think for themselves at all what is valuable or not.
We all have rose-tinted glasses. Some people just keep wearing them while others have the courage to remove them and see how things should be seen.
Wisdom is everywhere if you know where to see and if you have the humility to see where other eyes see not.
Oppositely, play this to your advantage. Become a person of such immense value and influence through your sheer hard work, others will lap at your feet for your immeasurable and hard-earned wisdom.
Its not how you’d want it but that’s how most people work. Realize this and use this understanding so you’ll go far.
