TO BE WISE, WHY NOT?

My senior advised me that the effective teacher is  a wise teacher. Of course  there is no a guarantee at all that old people  must be wise. As  a junior teacher can be wiser. Studies prove that we can become wiser by cultivating these habits:
 MAINTAINING  YOUR POSITIVE EMOTION
The wise persons calmly consider alternatives, even in crises, and acts upon controllable factors. The shoul be more patient,  and  more careful.
LEARNING  FROM THE PAST
Reflect upon your life and consider the major lessons you've learned. Write them down.
 BEING OPEN TO NEW EXPERIENCES
Broaden your exposure to people of all ages, political orientations, occupations, social classes, and cultures. Listen and gain knowledge from their vast and various experiences.
 CONSIDERING  DIFFERENT  PERSPECTIVES
The next time you're about to disagree with someone, stop and ask questions. Try to understand his or her point of view.
 FOCUSING  ON THE POSITIVE
Don't waste brain resources on negative thoughts--they drain mental energy.
 MOVING  FROM THE CENTER OF YOUR UNIVERSE
Younger people are generally egocentric and eager to recite their accomplishments. Older and wiser people tend to speak of the successes of others.
QUESTION CERTAINTY
Any sentence that begins "There is no doubt that..." or "It is an established fact that..." should be viewed skeptically.
 BROADENING  YOUR BASE OF "WISDOM KNOWLEDGE"
Thinking lessons from history, philosophy, psychology, literature, or religion.
 GETTING   COMFORTABLE WITH MIXED EMOTIONS
At my daughter's wedding, I was simultaneously happy for her new life and sad she was leaving. There is much ambiguity in life, and the wise accept this.
