The Courage to Displease

January 23, 2024

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Who do you admire most? Consider figures like your parents, grandparents, Martin Luther King Jr., Billy Graham, and Jesus. All of them faced opposition in their life. Each person has a moral compass. It’s essential to consider whom you are trying to please. I believe there is a reverse effect here, the shorter the list of people you are trying to please the longer your list of people that respect you.

Three Steps to Growing Your Courage:

  1. Put First Things First - For example, define the most important relationships in your life, such as God, spouse, family, and an inner circle of friends.
  2. Understand Your Morals and Convictions
  3. Have the Strength to Stick to Your Morals and Convictions

Quote of the Week:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
