TO TEST A MAN’S CHARACTER, GIVE HIM POWER OR TAKE HIS POWER AWAY!

31 May

“Do I want to win or do I want to be happy?”

.

NEARLY ALL MEN CAN STAND ADVERSITY, BUT IF YOU WANT TO TEST A MAN’S CHARACTER, GIVE HIM POWER OR TAKE HIS POWER AWAY

 Abraham Lincoln

What very few people fully understand is that they have been involved in an ongoing “power struggle” since the day of their birth. There always has been and there always will be people that play some kind of controlling role in your life.

A child is obviously virtually powerless when he is still young and dependent on his parents. Almost everything he does, gets involved in, wears, eats is decided by his parents. Because there is very little he can do about his disposition, he is forced to accept a submissive role until he finally one day is big and independent enough to leave home.

Children often feel that they will be “free” once they escape the enforced control of their parents, just to discover to their dismay that there will always be a range of people that will play or attempt to play a fairly dominant role in their lives. When a girl runs away from home to escape the claustrophobic control of her parents she often discovers that her boyfriend is even more controlling and demanding than her parents ever were.

When a boy enters the adult world he soon notices that his professor, boss or bank manager also has serious control over him. We will forever have people that are in power positions that “rule” or control certain areas of our lives. There are people that are appointed or gained a controlling position over us that are empowered to police all our actions.

These people are policemen, politicians or employers etc. A title, office or uniform provides them with power over us. A piece of paper, a certificate, skin colour, money or just being born in the right family gives certain people “power” over us. It should be obvious from the above that there are hundreds of people with real or artificial power positions that attempt to play a major role in your mental and physical freedom.

Most people under these circumstances tend to take on a submissive role and allow such people to dominate and intimidate them. The champions of life never bend their knee to nobody. They are strong and proud and never allow any person, notwithstanding his title, position, status or office to intimidate or dominate them. They remain strong and proud and never feel powerless in any situation.

I WILL ALWAYS SELECT THE MOST APPROPRIATE ATTITUDE WHILE AT WORK OR PLAY

I believe that you must remain strong and keep your dignity in tact notwithstanding your status in life. You do not need lots of money, rich parents or a uniform or certificate to retain your self-confidence. You can walk tall and keep your dignity in tact even when in the presence of kings.

You are the one that hands the power to people. If your knees buckle when you enter your bank manager’s office, you will be at his mercy. If you become clay when your lover, husband or boss talks to you, he or she will control you like a puppet on a string.

If you swoon, cringe; become agitated or uptight when you think of a certain person he or she has too much control and power over you. You must never allow any person or situation to hold an unfair advantage over you. If you are currently dominated by any person or party you are the one that empowered this person and you are the one that must dismantle or modify his or her power position.
