If you visit the best doctor in the world and the doctor cures you, you will become ill again if you do not follow the doctor's instructions. Can anyone blame the doctor? It is your own fault for not following the doctor's suggestions.
Similarly with wisdom, the ideas will only be able to help you if you constantly put them into practice.
Today, ask yourself: What ideas that I already know would make a major difference in my life if I applied them?
(see Chochmah Umussar 1:305; Gateway to Happiness, p.68)
