If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything

“If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” This rings in my ear this week.

It is important to know your values and have a set of principles that guide your actions and decisions. When you don’t have a clear sense of what you believe in, it is easy to be swayed by others or to fall into what others want for you. You end up living someone else’s life. 

One of the most important things in life is to have a sense of purpose. This purpose can come in many forms – it can be a yearly goal you’re working on, focusing on your health, building a business, or a lifetime goal you’d love to achieve.

Whatever it is, it gives you a sense of direction and helps you navigate through the ups and downs of life. When you have a clear sense of purpose, it becomes easier to make decisions, set priorities, and stay focused on what is truly important to you.

Let’s face it, it’s not easy to define what you stand for. We have to sort through the other voices, what we think we want to get clear on what we truly want for ourselves. 

This process can be difficult and uncomfortable, but it is necessary to truly understand yourself and what you want to stand for.

Once you have a clear sense of what you stand for, then it is being oh so brave to act in alignment with what you decide. This means being true to yourself even when it may be difficult or uncomfortable, and even challenging someone else.  

It also means being willing to take a stand for what you believe in, regardless of who will stand against you. 

Standing for something means being willing to question the status quo and to challenge the status quo. This can be difficult as it can create conflict with those who may disagree with you. 

For me, it is the essence behind Maximum Growth. What we stand for is:

Maintaining equanimity with others and equality within self

Seeing the hidden balance and potential in our experiences

Share meaningful things with the world

Find fulfillment in what we have while striving for more

We also believe firmly that no great thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen. #Epicitius 

Results take time. I stand firm in that there is no easy or quick fix, but consistency is key. That is why we have weekly classes for you to join every week to go deep with your mindset work, find the problem under the problem and deeply transform your business, leadership and life. 

I know the work is deeply healing and life-changing. 

So I’m curious, what do you stand for {first_name}? What are you willing to stand for and go against the crowd because it is something you believe in?

Remember, when you stand for something, you are less likely to fall for anything.
