Welcome to Day 1755 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Inspired to Excel – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1755 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, "How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!"  If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget. Today’s quote is from Zig Ziglar, and it is, “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.”

Inspired to Excel

Do you have someone who has inspired you to move outside of your comfort zone and excel to a level you never thought you could achieve?  Most people who succeed in any area of life would probably indicate that this is the case. I know in my life, my parents played a role in this process, along with hours and hours of listening to tapes of individuals who were successful and provided me with the encouragement to pursue goals beyond what I would have otherwise. You can be inspired to excel if you are willing to learn from the sages who have already proven that they are successful. Then, you will need to turn that inspiration into action. When you take action, you will begin to see achievements. As you see achievements, you will need to gain perseverance when the trials of life become difficult, and they will. That perseverance will generate long-term endurance and strength to ignore the naysayers so that you can continue on in the face of obstacles, setbacks, and even failures. So take the encouragement from others and allow it to inspire you to excel beyond anything you could have dreamed. Hebrews 12:1-4 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
