"Ọgbọ́n tí a fi ńkọ́lé ò tó èyí tí a fi ńgbée." The wisdom required to acquire a house, is nothing to that required to live in it.
When a man is great, people are drawn to him, like moth to flame, and the energy generated is enough to build a proverbial house. This is the wisdom of productivity. Beyond that point, however, there is a call for another kind of wisdom, which is the wisdom of sustainability.
The wisdom of sustainability activates your internal gravity and draws you deeper inward. It requires that you discover yourself and show up, in spite of your fears, in spite of your weaknesses and in spite of your failures.
It is your commitment to serve the spirit that dwells within you that will enable you to match the greatness you experience in the presence of men of consequence. In this regard, the wisdom of sustainability transcends it all.
