Birth of Great Achievement

In Daily Inspiration on February 5, 2011 at 5:40 pm

It is safe to say that our strength grows out of our weakness. I think it was Ralph Waldo Emerson who stated those words.  It’s not until we are pricked and stung and sorely shot at, awakens the indignation which arms itself with secret forces. In this life strife and struggle inspire us to overcome adversity and propels us to real achievement.  We must look at every struggle as an opportunity or gateway to greatness. With each struggle or adverse situation we build character.  The road to greatness is a tough one. Filled with bumps, detours, nails, rocks, glass bottles, etc.  It’s filled with a myriad of people and personalities.  If you know you are right, stay the course even though the whole world seems to be against you and everyone you know questions your judgment.  You will prevail if you stick to it, and I have confidence that you will. Keep your eyes on the prize, keeping your heart and mind clear of any ill feelings towards those who oppose you. Remember with the realization of your own potential and self-confidence of your ability, you can achieve anything you set your sights on. Keep fighting for your freedom of expression. Fight for your freedom to be yourself, and unfold in this beautiful world. Be you, be Jun E, be Great!

  1. I think one of the hardest achievements in the current social order is just being one’s self unashamedly! So many people’s spirits and aspirations are crushed before they’re even fully grown adults–which is not fully their fault. I think many of us are afraid to fail or make mistakes, so we don’t even try to accomplish anything! Some of us are not even in touch with our own spirit, so we don’t even know what it truly desires. Like you said, without failure or mistakes we cannot grow. Personally, I don’t like conflict or confrontation…but over the years I have realized that not all conflict/confrontation is negative, often it acts as a catalyst to move me and my relationships to the next level. Without conflict, failure, and mistakes our lives would be stagnant. In nature, things that are stagnant are still undergoing change, however the process is putrid, fetid and full of decay. Every process has its place in the natural order, however I choose for my life to be the opposite of decay and stagnancy!I choose a vibrant, creative life full of wonder and infinite possibilities!!
