Scripture Reference: “For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, and in a multitude of counselors there is safety. Proverb 24:6
We have said that people don’t learn from history, which is why history keeps repeating itself. No matter your line of business, career, education and your quest for greatness, someone has already gone ahead. Those people are like a wisdom bank we can make withdrawals from them in form of counsel so that we can maximize our purpose. Solomon said, “Every purpose is established in the multitude of counsel.” We must take note of that word “multitude”. We need adequate counsel so that we can access information that would transform our destinies for the better. And not just counsel; but adequate counsel. It must be enough.
I discovered that one principal channel of receiving counsel is through the written materials of those that have gone ahead in the area of our quest. Reading opens you up to what they have done and how they did it. It will keep you from re-inventing the wheel. Counsel grants you access to the technical know-how as you begin to study the materials of others who have trod the path and digest them.
