You Have to Fight

Standard

Life will present us with many challenges. These challenges may come in the form of family, health and financial issues. When these challenges come, we are faced with what appears to be an array of choices. In my humble opinion, there is only one choice to make – stand up and fight.

I am not talking about a fist fight. I am talking about not settling for “no” as the final answer or when they say, “it can’t be done”, you find a way to make it happen anyway. I’m talking about when the doctor says nothing can be done for your loved one but you still believe by faith that they will be healed.wisdom-and-thoughts3

We must have a ‘no surrender, no retreat’ attitude, no matter what it looks like or what someone says.

I have faced these very same challenges in life and no it was not fun. I can’t even imagine what my life would look like today if I settled in a corner and just accepted the circumstances that found a way to cross my path at various stages in my life. To lay down and die to whatever you are facing is not an acceptable response.

Quitting is the easiest thing you can do. It requires no effort to simply do nothing. You need to figure out what your why is for doing what you are doing or living how you are living. Once you have your ‘why’, keep pressing on because you now have your fuel to fight.

 

If you have lived life just settling for what people want to give you and never have challenged what you have been told, I respectfully say you have never been free. I know some of you will say, “Well, I don’t like conflict” or “it’s no big deal anyway”. I want you to know that every time you don’t take a stance and you just go with the flow or say yes to something that you don’t agree with, you are saying no to yourself.

Today, I challenge you to take a stance. I challenge you to fight.

    Yes!!!! Quitting is never an option. “Once you have your ‘why’, keep pressing on because you now have your fuel to fight.” is what it’s all about.

  2. “If you have lived life just settling for what people want to give you and never have challenged what you have been told, I respectfully say you have never been free.” That statement right there is everything. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself quoted and tagged somewhere on social media…
