I Can Do That… Right?
What’s my crime?
What have I done?
Considering I was degraded, all my hopes had quickly faded;
Still, I chose my path and won.
As a motivational tool, strength’s the most powerful automatic response element any human can hope for, as it requires no outside prompting to initiate its awesome power. Before we can begin to realize the awesome power of strength in our lives however, we must first learn to recognize it’s within ourselves.
But… the meek inherit earth.
I’ve never really been able to come to a solid conclusion on whether that’s really a good thing or not. Meekness doesn’t ensure a verified path to success, after all. In fact in most cases, meekness will more likely block any chance of achieving success.
The Do It Yourself idea sometimes comes off as a relatively recent discovery that’s gaining popularity. You know the type; the typical CEO, who can’t even get his own cup of coffee, decides to tackle tree trimming with that newly purchased chainsaw.
We think, “Why pay someone to do something I can do myself?”
The CEO gets injured or causes property damage; either way costing more to fix than hiring a tree trimmer. Such an experience likely prevents their attempting DIY again. Lacking strength to employ a common sense approach, they’re defeated by their own hubris.
The truth is, most people are well-grounded and understand the kinds of tasks they are, or should be capable of performing themselves. They see things through proper perspective. They don’t spend time incessantly fooling themselves.
What is it that inspires us to want to even attempt doing new things ourselves anyway; things we’d never attempted before? Could it be that remaining, barely conceivable trait of inquisitiveness, (by which humankind has progressed and achieved so much), pleading within us, “carry this forward for all of humanity’s sake?”
How long then shall we indulge those types, who take it upon themselves to plot, and therefore seek the bulk of humanity’s return to an indentured status of “living?” They know that incentives are a huge threat to their plans.
Those of us abundantly aware are even bigger threats to the plans of those who wish to gain rule over us, as they grow increasingly impatient with us. Does the time approach even now, when they will physically attack us to remove our element – which then leaves them free to abuse?
We must begin with strength - strength of resolve - and then we must apply what we know and educate ourselves on what we don’t. Learning how to do more things adds value to us as a whole.
The stage was set decades ago, and the script has been followed to a tee for so long.
Finally, and for the first time in a long while, we’re awakening to a new understanding – we have been deceived by those who prefer that we could not do things ourselves.
