Knowledge, wisdom, understanding and mindset are a continuum, and you need all in order to experience lasting and impactful success. Knowledge comes from the Greek word “gnosis” which means awareness of everything under the sun or familiarity with science (the way things are done). Wisdom comes from the Greek word “sophia” which means insight into reality or the ability to connect the dots and apply knowledge in an intelligible manner. Wisdom informs your actions and decisions.
Understanding is “sunesis” in Greek which means a high amplitude of comprehension or perceptual ability. Understanding is also the penetrating consideration which precedes action. The last on this continuum is Mindset, translated “phronesis” in Greek. Mindset is also known as practical wisdom, prudence or fixed mental attitude which predetermines your response to situations. Your mind is set or fixed to do things a certain way. It is a mental model or paradigm embedded in your consciousness which becomes a force which makes you do what you are supposed to do. These four gives us a formula for success as follows: GNOSIS+SOPHIA+SUNESIS+PHRONESIS=GREAT SUCCESS
