Do you know where wisdom came from?
Wisdom doesn't just fall from the sky, nor instantly obtainable. Wisdom is all about life experiences. Also comes in time. To be wise is to be silent,   not quiet. There is a difference between quiet and silent. To be quiet, you don't have nothing to say with your mouth, but you have something in your mind. To be silent, you are willing to listen without something on your mind nor your mouth.
 
Wise people are calm and they know judgement. They can complain but not much. Wisdom includes an ability to stand back and take in the bigger picture while still admiring the details that make things function well. With time, a wise person grows deeper in knowledge but does not abuse that knowledge by shutting out others or claiming to be the sole repository of ideas and answers; instead, a wise person willingly shares what they have learned and enables the growth of others willing to listen.
 
To be wise, you must know yourself. Do you really know yourself? If you don't know, look deep down inside yourself. Also, realize that you know nothing. You must also accept that there will never be an end to learning. You don't have to stop learning. If your curious, seek help to your mentor. Be unhurried. Wise people does not simply rush themselves when doing something. Be humble and be gentle.
There are more things to be wise. It just takes time and practice.
 
One sign of wisdom is an owl. And lastly, wisest man who lived on earth is, Jesus.
