A dozen reasons you should stand up for yourself (and the things you believe in).

Good day, you amazing and gritty soul...

The great writer, Charles Bukowski, once wrote the nights you fight best are the ones when the whole world is seemingly against you. He believed even if the game is fixed, and you're destined to lose, you should still keep going. 

Anyways, here's why I bring this up:

You'll never discover what you're capable of playing it safe in life.

Never.

Ever.

You might have a few cool experiences and post-card like excursions, but you'll never fully become the person you're destined to become.

Which is why I'd like to share a dozen reasons you should stand up for yourself (and for the things you believe in)...

  1. Your opinion matters.

  2. You'll be an example to others.

  3. Your vote counts.

  4. The darkness can't stand your little light.

  5. No one else sees the way the world you do.

  6. You are worth the fight.

  7. The future shouldn't be shaped by bullies and takers.

  8. You'll find out what you're truly capable of.

  9. Your life will take on an unstoppable quality.

  10. You'll help others learn what healthy boundaries are.

  11. Truth and justice will take a tiny step forward.

  12. And, you'll radically change the direction of your future.

Just to mention a few of the benefits of taking a stand. 

But, don't be confused or make the mistake of thinking you have to be ugly and crazy and loud to take a stand. You don't.

In fact, if you're gentle, kind, compassionate, and patient - without bending - you'll frustrate the hell out of the people and powers trying to hold you down.

Try it out today and see if it works. 

Then hit me back via email (just respond to this post) and let me know what happened. 

I can't wait to hear about what transpires.

Here's to the winning effect of love...
