On the Consistent Man

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by the First Earl of Beaconsfield, British statesman and Conservative politician, who twice served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Benjamin Disraeli.
 Benjamin Disraeli On the Consistent Man Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“A consistent man believes in destiny, a capricious man in chance.” — Benjamin Disraeli
If you want to achieve anything in life, you must be consistent and you must believe in yourself. Forget about whim and chance, those aren’t to be counted on. The only thing you can control is how consistent you are with reality. So, be consistent, and craft your own destiny. Jim Woods July 14, 2021.

A Few Simple Things

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by American lawyer, politician and governor of Massachusetts who later became President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge.

A Few Simple Things Calvin Coolidge Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“If all the folks in the United States would do the few simple things they know they ought to do, most of our big problems would take care of themselves.” — Calvin Coolidge

The 30th president isn’t an often-quoted figure, but here Coolidge reminds us what we all know — and that is the answer to the larger problems of society start with looking in the mirror. Jim Woods July 7, 2021.

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by German philosopher and one of the central Enlightenment thinkers, Immanuel Kant.
Kantian Knowledge and Wisdom Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.” — Immanuel Kant
The extremely influential philosopher’s ideas are both interesting and controversial, but here he offers us some non-controversial advice on the distinction between science and wisdom — and the important role both play in our lives. Jim Woods June 30, 2021.

On Disagreeability

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by  American businessman, author, United States Air Force officer, five-term Senator from Arizona, and the 1964 Republican Party nominee for president of the United States, Barry Goldwater.
Goldwater On Disagreeability Barry Goldwater Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“To disagree, one doesn’t have to be disagreeable.” –Barry Goldwater
There may be a lot of division on political, social and economic issues in America, and while we may disagree, the best way to do so is to avoid being disagreeable. In order to persuade others, we first must avoid putting them on the defensive with disrespect and insult. If you can do that, you’re already halfway home. Jim Woods June 23, 2021.

Chesterton on Love and Loss

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by English writer, philosopher, lay theologian, literary and art critic, G. K. Chesterton.
Chesterton on Love and Loss GK Chesterton Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.” –G. K. Chesterton
The English writer has uttered many a great quote, but this one is perhaps my favorite. Here he reminds us that facing up to the possibility of a loss is a great way to remind oneself of the need to love the things in life that really matter most. Now I ask you, what’s more important than that? Jim Woods June 16, 2021.

The Secret to Success

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer, Mark Twain. The Secret to Success Mark Twain Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” –Mark Twain Do you want to succeed in life? Do you want to conquer your obstacles? Do you want to achieve your dreams? If you’re hearing this, I’d venture to say the answer is yes. However, before you can declare yourself a victor, you have to actually get started. In fact, one of the biggest obstacles to success in life is to put off getting started on what you really want. Don’t do that any longer. Take Twain’s words to heart — and go for it! Jim Woods June 9, 2021.

What Power Attracts

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by scientist, author, futurist, and professional speaker, David Brin. What Power Attracts David Brin Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” –David Brin The great science fiction novelist is known for producing some great reads (“The Postman,” “The Uplift War,” “Infinity’s Shore”), but here he warns us about a problem that’s anything but fiction. You see, the nature of power (and specifically political power) tends to attract a certain type of corruptible person. Just beware of that view the next time you assess a proposed government policy, or the next time you put your faith in any politician. Jim Woods June 2, 2021.

The Wisdom of Knowing You Can Do It

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by Greek mathematician, physicist, inventor, engineer and astronomer, Archimedes.

The Wisdom of Knowing You Can Do It Archimedes Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” –Archimedes The great thinker and scientist of the classical antiquity period was a man of immense talent and knowledge. Here, he gives us some wisdom about what we can accomplish if we are motivated, and if we choose the right tools. This lesson is not just for investing, but for any pursuit in life. You see, motivation, plus the proper tools, equals success. Yet one absent the other is bound to result in mediocrity, at best, and failure at worst. Jim Woods May 26, 2021.

Oscar Wilde On Experience and Mistakes

Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods

Today's insight was inspired by Irish poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde. On Experience and Mistakes Oscar Wilde Quote Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods“Experience is the name so many people give to their mistakes.” –Oscar Wilde If you’ve reached adulthood, then I don’t have to tell you that the more experienced you are, the more mistakes you’ve likely made. Of course, making the same mistakes over and over again doesn’t really equate to experience. In order to cultivate experience, you need to learn from your mistakes and not let yourself repeat the errors of the past. Jim Woods May 19, 2021

Putting One Fake Foot in Front of the Other Featuring Steve Martin

Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man… putting one fake foot in front of the other, with a truly inspiring American hero.

Welcome to today's show from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods. Some men, when faced with overwhelming, life-shattering adversity, choose to embrace the circumstance. And in doing so, they live a life of epic inspiration. In this episode, Jim speaks with just such a man, former Army soldier and retired police officer, Steve Martin. Steve is an Afghanistan war veteran whose battlefield injuries cost him both of his legs. Yet rather than allow that to stop him, Steve chose to overcome his personal battles, conquer his inner demons, and live a life that we all can aspire to. From overcoming pain medications and becoming one of the first double-amputee field police officers in the country, to becoming an athlete whose participation in high-profile competitions has elevated awareness for life after amputation, Steve is a man whose mindset we all can learn from. If you want to be inspired by a real-life hero and learn about his new adventure with Friends of Freedom USA, then Jim’s conversation with Steve Martin is just what you’ve been looking for. The show Jim references with David Haddad can be found here titled, “A Conversation with the Bard of Fine Cigars and Prohibition-era Spirits.” To find out more about Steve's Ride and how you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of veterans and first responders transitioning into civilian life, visit FriendsOfFreedomUSA.org
