Better is a poor and wise child, than an old and foolish king that will no longer be admonished.

This is one of the saddest things about life—that men of power become foolish. King Solomon learned this the hard way and, in Ecclesiastes 4, penned the quote above. He learned that at the very height of success, foolishness is apt to set in. They begin to think that they are above the law—that the laws that apply to you and I don’t apply to them.

Another reason I think that men in power get in trouble is because they come to develop this sense of destiny—that since they are in power, that God or destiny is with them. Thus, their folly cannot cause them to fall.

With that in mind, let’s look at another great principle that’s important in making your life work: the ability to listen to—and accept graciously—criticism.
