No man was ever wise by chance

Some of B schools and even IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, written ability Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication and personality so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA selection process.  
 
Today, you will read WAT topic:  No man was ever wise by chance
 
Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a Roman Stoic philosopher, was absolutely right when he said, “No man was ever wise by chance”. Wisdom is something that is earned through experiences in life. In this world, there are many knowledgeable people but very few wise men and women. 
 
Many people have the misconception that wisdom is the root of knowledge. This is not true. Wisdom and knowledge are two separate things – knowledge is what people attain from education, data and experience whereas wisdom is the ability to use that knowledge in a proper manner. 
 
Some of the wisest people to have ever walked the planet are Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Teresa, and Nelson Mandela. These great souls did not gain wisdom by chance; in fact, they became wise after witnessing pain and suffering in the world. 
 
Today, we are honored to have the Dalai Lama, one of the wisest people on Earth, to guide us on living life to the fullest and spreading joy and happiness to people around us. Wisdom is something that is not gained overnight – it is through countless observations as well as understanding and analyzing people’s actions and their repercussions that people become wise. 
 
Otto von Bismarck, the prince of Bismarck, once said, “Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others”. Wise men and women around us, through their experiences in life, help us in leading smooth and peaceful lives, and prevent us from making mistakes, which can have a negative effect on our lives.
 
Wise men resist automatic thinking, seek to understand ambiguity better and grasp the deeper meaning of life. They also have the ability to see things from various perspectives, instead of classifying things in black and white, which is the outcome of years of hard work – not luck by chance.
