[vur-choo] • noun •
“If I only knew THEN what I know NOW.”
How much more could you have accomplished? How truly phenomenal would Life be? Anyone who’s lived long enough to make a mistake (all of us) has made this testimony a few times in disbelief. It seems as though the solution to every problem is right there after the Fog. And that one philosophy that unlocks our Genius is found shortly after we’ve endured the struggle.
Its normal to wonder “Why are Life’s Lessons so hard to come by?” But on the contrary, were we even ready for the Answers?… YE? Surely it would have accelerated our progress in some areas, but it also would have caused us to bypass the experiences that have been so vital to our development.
While reading the Compound Effect, it all dawned on me. There is nothing new under the sun and no need to reinvent the wheel. It’s simple, If you want success, study successful people and do what they’ve done. The same applies to Virtue. If you want to live a virtuous life, Talk to your Elders. In comparison, who has had more “If I knew THEN…” moments then Granny and Paw-Paw? The wisdom of our elders and predecessors is invaluable. You never know, one conversation could save you 5 years on that struggle.
It would never serve us to go back and change our past but if you wish to design your future — Seek Wisdom
