Day 4 | Faithful in Character

Wise Up

“Proverbs… for attaining wisdom and discipline… for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life.” – Proverbs 1:2

 

As men, we have many responsibilities that require strong and decisive leadership.  A good leader has great wisdom. Wisdom is the knowing and applying of principles for successful living.

The greatest pursuit of your life is obtaining wisdom.

It’s time to wise up.  Commit yourself to gaining wisdom.

THE ULTIMATE PURSUIT

  • Commit to reading one chapter of Proverbs each day for the rest of the Challenge.
  • Read a biography of a successful man.
  • Sit down with a man 10 years older than yourself and ask, “What advice would you give me if you were speaking to yourself ten years ago.”
  • Make the decision to be a reader.

TODAY’S CHALLENGE

Set aside 30 minutes to read. Consider making this a daily commitment.

    I want to highly recommend the book, “More than a Hobby” by David Green. It is one of the best books by a CEO – very practical.
