What Are You Fighting For?


“When you fight for your limitations, you get to keep them.”  Les Brown

It’s amazing how many people limit their potential to be greater than they are.  I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard…“you don’t understand…” and “I wish I could…” or “well it’s easy for you because…”.

When you start thinking like this, you immediately place an invisible wall between you and the thing you want the most.  You begin to fight for things that have little or no value to you.  You start forcing things to work for you when they clearly don’t.  You shut down.  You stop doing things that you’ve always loved doing.  You stop trying altogether.

You find yourself fighting against your job, your family, your friends, and strangers.  But what are you fighting for?

Take a moment to analyze the situations that pissed you off, left you hanging, or caused you to pause.  Are you standing with your fists raised and ready to strike?  Or protect?
