Fight for it

Today, people are working longer hours and earning less and it is a constant struggle to survive due to their social standing in today’s society. While there are those who build wealth and continue to do so all because of their mental concept, “FIGHT FOR IT”.

Since the beginning of the world to present day, men have been slugging it out for a variety of reasons. The first battle of man was between God after they consumed the fruit of good and evil. Today, some man have, become tough battle axes, who continues to fight their way into and out of every battle that is encountered.

Men have to put up a battle for survival against the elements for food, shelter, their happiness, their well-being or for whatsoever, goals or desire they set out to achieve. Whether to achieve the hands of a beautiful lady or to acquire a job, plus it doesn’t matter since life is a constant battle and he has to fight for it in order to emerge from the bottom and advance his way up the ladder.

People who are at the top of the ladder in Politics, Business, Arts, Science or whatever high field of professional did not get where they are without putting up a fight. The concept of the nice guy who wouldn’t hurt a fly is not good for anyone who wish to make it in today's world. It takes a raging bull that will tear down a wall or a vicious lion to roar his way up to the top.

A dead man rises back to life once he learns that fighting is okay because it is the principle of survival. If he is the kind of person who will holler “Ouch”, or sit still and take it when he is stuck with a pin, then such a person don’t qualify as a fighter unless he jumps up and sock a punch in the nose of the person who sticks him with the pin. Lazarus starts to rise from the dead when he asks himself,” why should I be eaten by other animals in the jungle, why should I be stepped on, shifted out of the way or not receive the promotion for the job that I deserves”.

Once a man wakes up to the art of fighting, they edge pass a long line at the grocery store, they command their kids to shut up, they make the waiter take back their meals because the peas were put on the plate the wrong way. More value have been placed on a prize bull than there has been placed on a sissy bull. For example, a prize bull was sold for a whooping $600,000 in Bruneau, Idaho, USA during 2013 and this breaks the Guinness world record for the most expensive bulls. More value is placed on people who are prize fighter in society today.

A fighter sets his sight high and implement the mental concepts of “I WILL PROVE I CAN DO IT” about every task that they tackles, they proclaim that “THE IMPOSSIBLE IS A LIE”, include the concept of “WIN OR PERISH”. They negotiate deals, drive hard bargains, demand results from others and are not afraid to be called a bitch behind their backs, plus if a mosquito bites them it dies of pneumonia. They actually have to be held back by their handlers which could be their wives, sweetheart or bosses.

There are many industries and field of endeavors today that are looking for fighters in order to prosper and if all one possess is a degree from a popular University or College, it may not be sufficient for today’s difficult society. One needs to develop the right mental concept by training ourselves to fight smart, build confidence, dignity and power.

We switch on success when we set our mental concept to “FIGHT FOR IT”, which is the motivation power in action. I once read about a president of a corporation who gave a tough speech that got his employee rattled and someone called him General. When the person was asked if the president was in World War II. The horrified reply was “He started it!. Now be a General and get out there and start yourself a war.

I wish you all prosperity and success with your battle for survival and advancement up the ladder. Cheers!

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive. - Leah LaBelle

Juan, thank you as always for your valuable input. However, I do not mean a physical fight but a mental one, with the mind backed up with action. Physical, fight comes with external consequences that one should avoid.

Interesting article Andrew... I agree that to succeed you must have a specific goal and you have to be totally focused in your efforts. I'm a bit puzzled by your emphasis on a physical fight since I believe you are a man of faith, and you must certainly be familiar with the quote that "the meek shall inherit the earth..." Further, at least for online money making activities, you hear that you must keep the needs of your audience in mind, provide a valuable service, and always "over deliver, which implies you want to help people, not run over them to get what you want... just a thought...
