Some Will Rise

Updated: Feb 16


Adversity introduces a man to himself.


It’s in that moment, when things aren’t going well when we get to find out who you really are.


When we get to look into your soul and see what you’re made of


When we get to see whether your talk is cheap


Whether you’re true to your word and can keep your promise.


Whether you have the strength of will


It's in that moment, when we get to see what you really value


What you really stand for, not just in word, but also in deed.


Everyone is happy when things are going well, but when things begin to falter, the truth is quickly revealed, some will stay and others will run.


Some will rise above and conquer


Others will look for a way out, for an excuse


Some will double down, dig their heels it, and go to work to make things right


Others will opt for the most basic of the animal instincts, self-preservation


And often it’s a matter of personal character, you either have it in you or you don’t, you will either rise or fall, it’s ingrained in your DNA.


Other times, you have to look yourself in the mirror and choose, who do you want to be?


Because it really is as simple as making a decision


But a decision often means commitment and we are terrified of commitment


Because commitment means responsibility


And responsibility comes with sacrifice and sometimes even hardship


And accepting the hardships, knowing that the struggle is ultimately worth it, is not always easy.


And we seem to live in a culture of easy,


It seems we’d much rather just settle for ‘what makes us happy’ – regardless of the consequences or the lives that might be impacted as a result


Because what you say and what you do, has real life consequences


So be careful with the company you keep


If you fall, will there be anyone there to catch you?


And in turn, should someone need you, will you run, or be one of the few that can be relied upon?


One of the very few that will rise above


Maybe its time for that reality check, to be honest with your self - what are you really truly made of?
