How protective are you of your family and/or loved ones? What would it take - what would have to be done - to push you into action to DO SOMETHING to protect them?
Let's take a step back first and look at some things that we do (or have done) that fit this category every single day...
If you have children - as they began to understand things, did we not give them instructions on not walking away with people they don't know or getting in cars of people like this among many other instructions along this line? Sure we did! Why? TO PROTECT THEM!
Do you have locks on the doors of your home? Do you use them? Perhaps you even have an alarm system on your house. Why do all of this? TO PROTECT THEM!
Do you take your kids to the doctor when they are sick? Why? TO PROTECT THEM!
And, I could go on and on and on - right?
So, every day we do things in order to protect those that we love BUT there are those times that we may be driven to extreme actions in order to protect our loved ones.
What would it take for you to put yourself in harms way so that your family would be protected and kept from harm? Think about that and, likely, as you think about it you may find that you begin to get a little "worked up" just thinking about it!
Now, let's make the application.
What will it take for you to "step up" and do whatever it takes to protect your loved ones and their future? That "future" may simply mean as much happiness as you can give them with your time and attention and it may mean financial security and freedom.
How many more times will you have to be laid off of a job? How many more times will you have to be told that you cannot take a few days off to spend with loved ones over the holiday because you have to be at work the day after the holiday? How many more times will you allow someone else to tell you what to do, when to do it, how to do it when you KNOW that you have more knowledge of the "it" than the one that is telling you all of this? How many more days will it take for you to go to work with dread?
What will it take?
Only YOU can decide that and only YOU can decide if your family is at risk in this type of environment.
I want to encourage you to finally say, "ENOUGH!"
Now, understand, you need to plan accordingly - don't forget that!
But...have you been pushed enough? Have you been "bullied" enough? Have you and your family been threatened enough?
What will it take?
Wow. That hits me to my core. What about you?
I plan to continue this discussion in a "part 2" of this topic in the next podcast and my next blog entry - I hope you'll be back for this next part.
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
