The Greatest Battle

Picture
“The Greatest battle is not physical but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet, the steady dignity that simply refuses to give in. Courage. We all suffer. Keep going. ” ~Graeme Fife

One thing that I been wanting to write about is about the Greatest Battle, and that is the ultimate battle that you are always going to fight even when you are at peace you will be fighting it. That is against yourself. Why? because when you set out to pursue you goal, sometimes it’s not the people that will hold you back. Sometimes it will be you that will hold yourself back. This is very important because this can happen to anyone and its ok, there is nothing to be ashamed of because it has happened to the best. The important thing you can do is keep in mind that you did not quit. Although you may not have been ready for such responsibility at that point, you can always move forward and continue on. You may be moving slowly but surely. So let’s say next time that you are competing against someone else keep in mind that it’s not just that person that you are competing against, because take a good look in the mirror and that person that you see is the one that you are really competing against.


Be Yourself

Picture
“To be yourself, in a world that tries, night and day, to make you just like everybody else…is to fight the greatest battle there ever is to fight, and never stop fighting.” ~E.E. Cummings.

This is another point I want to bring up because it is relevant to the greatest battle and one of the most important parts of knowing yourself. Be sure to be yourself, do not settle for less just because people don’t like who you are, believe me there a tons of people in this world with different mind sets and different mentalities, you don’t have to be someone else just so that people can like you. There are also times when people will want to change your belief system because it does not match theirs and its ok, if you know your own self and belief system, there is no need to go changing, you keep believing in what you want. So stand firm and continue on with your head held high.
