What is this blog about?

There is no such thing as an expert on the topic of Life. We all have had our battles, our suffering, and our questions. Despite the uniqueness of our personal obstacles, we have endured them. We have endured them well enough to advise those behind us as to how to do the same. I have done the research on your behalf regarding the multitude of reasons why wisdom exists. My mission is to utilize the voices of the world's greatest thinkers and heroes to compose a guideline of life's wisdom so that you don't have to experience those trials alone.

If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @JoeSielski or email me at JJSielskiJr@comcast.net

(Please title your email with the word "Wisdom" so I know it will be for this blog.)

I will do my best to try and answer every question as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thanks.

A Moment of Self-Inspiration

With holidays just around the corner, specifically Christmas, we are once again flooded by numerous holiday songs.  Earlier in the car, a lyric really stood out to me.  This is a lyric from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

As the story goes, all of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names.  They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.   I'm sure many of us can relate to this experience.

But there's a little light in the end of the tunnel for Rudolph.  Santa recognized Rudolph's unique nose as a gift rather than a flaw.   For that reason, Rudolph became celebrated for that nose of his.  He led the sleigh and the other reindeer. 

Very simply, my point is that this little deer learned that his uniqueness was his greatest strength.  We are no different.  Some of the most quirky characteristics can be some of the greatest assets.   So don't allow opinions to convince you otherwise.

What is your red nose?

How can you put it to use?

Everybody is a genius. 
But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,
it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid. 
[Albert Einstein]
