Colin Wilson tells us The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain.
Just so you know, cows will stand in a field regardless of the weather until one takes the initiative to head to the barn, then they all line up single file, and follow that one cow to shelter. As lowly as cows are is in this realm, that one happened to be a leader and has taken charge of its situation, whether we understand it or not.
The percentage is pretty high that there will come a time when we all may have to take a stand. My advice is to take into consideration the words of Lou Hotz; Nothing on this earth is standing still. It’s either growing or it’s dying. No matter if it’s a tree or a human being.
The thing is we exist in a society of victimization where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves for a lack of courage.
Don’t be afraid to take a stand for yourself, or speak up even if you don’t get the answers you are looking for; it’s just the fact that you said something that matters, even if it hurts.
It’s a fact of life that sometimes the actions we take will leave scars, especially when we choose to stand up and fight for ourselves and others, but scars show toughness, including the fact that you have been through it, and you’re still standing is a Testimony.
It takes tremendous courage to stand up for what’s right, even if you have to stand alone, especially when you know it is unpopular. The thing is, it’s a true test of your moral character.
The wall of fear that may be standing in your way has no expiration date, it can stand in place a lifetime if the reason it was put there is not removed or at least addressed. Most times the problem is self-insecurities, like not trusting your own ability to fight for your own life (too afraid), the sorry reason the wall is still there.
Take back your power; your insecurities are what’s chasing and standing in the way of the freedom needed to live out your dreams.
Although some of us were not blessed with confidence, still we had better be aware of those that don’t fight back, just like you, sooner or later they will have to. So, it’s better to say and do something now: Let the World know you exist, because if you don’t, what you allow will continue, like it or not.
Don’t let anyone break your soul. You will have to stand on your own; stand up for yourself. Some, including family, would give anything to see you fail, but you must never give them the satisfaction. Hold your head up high, smile, and stand your ground fearlessly.
It’s Something to Think About!
