Books With Wisdom

“Wisdom; Get it, apply it, and pass it on.” My humble thanks and gratitude to all the great authors who were my teachers this past year. Wisdom is the combination of the accumulation of knowledge and the application of the same. To be truly exceptional, we must continue to have a self-mastery plan that not only acquires wisdom but has a system of application and dissemination in place if you wish to live your purpose to it’s fullest. The humble student is at the same time an inspired mentor. What did you learn this past year and from who? What is your plan for 2022?
