How To March On To Victory

As I hear the stories of others, and consider my own story and my own journey, I’ve realised that the periods where I found myself stuck, stagnant or wallowing in mediocrity were a result of my acceptance to stay under the circumstances rather than rising above them and taking command.

Rise Up From Slavery

But in order to live a full life I’ve also discovered that I need to refrain from bending my knee as a slave to the circumstances. Rather choose to rise up as a Five Star General and take control. I listen to my genius. I re-identify my uniqueness. I take stock of my shelf full of talents and develop them. I survey within, while at the same time observing my surrounds. I dig trenches, re-arm myself for battle, create a battle plan and then charge.

These have been my breakout moments – drawing upon the power invested in me by my Creator. Aided by His courage I have declared, ‘I might have lost the battle, but I’m going to win the war’. I’m going to re-group, re-equip and regain my self respect. I’m going to go again! No matter if it is the eleventh hour, or the sun is setting on all those around me, I will blaze. I will fire. I will tap into that genius. I will dig deep within until I find that jewel – that peculiar diamond that was deposited in me the very day I was born.

Your Break Out Challenge

Out of seven billion there is only one smile like yours, one thought like yours, one personality and one voice like yours. So choose to speak. And no matter how the world may respond, or even at times try to gag you, shout above the crowd. You shall be heard. For this is your breakout. This is your liberty, and this is your birthright.

The mistakes of the past will not bury you as dirt fills a grave, but rather the more dirt thrust upon you the more you will stamp your feet in protest, and the higher you will rise. You will stand head and shoulders above the dust. You will soar further and reach farther beyond your wildest dreams and your greatest hopes. This is your breakout. This is your divine destiny – your life for the taking.

As Emerson wrote so eloquently ‘no matter how often defeated, you are born to victory!’ Choose to break out to victory. Victory is at your mercy and will yield by sharing her spoils with you. Make it your decree that you will not cease fighting until victory is yours.
