The other day I shared some of my favorite words in my leadership course. These are words that resonate with me. When I say or read these words, I often stop and think about what they mean to me. My list was:
A sage is a person who is wise and they are wise because they learn from experiences. Wise people reflect on what happens and learn from it. Sages are interested in others and often ask questions rather than give answers.
I often emphasize curiosity rather than judgment. If we are curious, then we are less likely to be judgmental. Plus it makes life so much more interesting. And integrity cannot be compromised. Even when we make mistakes, we can maintain our integrity.
No one arrives. We are all becoming–evolving.
The question is: What are we becoming? To what are we evolving?
I actually own the domain: Becomingasage.com (I love that thought.)
I am sure I could add to this list, but I would like to hear from you.
