Proverbs is written by Solomon. Solomon is with out a doubt the smartest person who has ever lived.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6 TNIV)
Don't Trust yourself. We are all filled with sin, why would you trust anybody else but the Lord? To gain wisdom you have to, not trust your own understanding, but in all of your ways trust in him.
In chapter 3, verse 14, Solomon simply saids, that wisdom is worth more then gold or silver. Solomon was also a king, so he was very wealthy, and had everything he ever wanted, and he said that wisdom is more important? He did and I believe him.
STOP trying to do everything, get everything, be everything. We can't, it's like chasing the wind. It's meaningless, because all of these things under the sun with not be with you in heaven or hell so you can forget about it.
For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;
the more knowledge, the more grief. (Ecclesiastes 1:18 TNIV)
The more you learn about something the more sad it becomes. Having a lot of wisdom brings grief, you have Jesus there to comfort you through the sorrow. It's just a warning.
