Challenges to Pursue (Part 16)

challenges 15

In this blog I am going through 15 challenges that the late Jim Rohn dared us to pursue in our own lives.

Today we will be talking about the fifteenth and final challenge Jim Rohn gave us.

Fight for What’s Right

It’s a fight we’re in.  The storyteller says “And there was a great war in heaven.”  One of the writers of later Scripture said, “I fought a good fight.”  That’s extraordinary to be able to say.  I fought for my kids, and I fought for what was right and I fought for good health, and I fought to protect my company and I fought for a good career that would bless my family.  I fought a good fight.  It’s good to fight the encroachment.  Opposites are in conflict, and you’re in the middle.  If you want something valuable, you’ve got to fight for it. Then this writer also said, “I fought a good fight and I kept the faith.”  See, that’s the deal.  Keep faith with your family.  Fight the enemy and keep faith.  Fight the illness and keep faith.  Fight the evil and keep faith.  I can’t give you much better advice.

I think this challenge is at the very heart of all of the other challenges.  It is all about doing what is right.  Your life will be judged on whether you did the right things or not. 

Life is a constant battle between good and evil.  Every day you have to fight to do what is right so that you can conquer evil.  If you do not go into each day prepared for battle, you will lose that day.  It is a day that you will never get back again.  Make the most of each day you are given.  Make each one count.

When your life comes to an end, you want people to say that you gave it the “good fight.”  You don’t want to be remembered for going along with mediocrity.  You want to be known for always fighting for what was right.  You want people to know you did your best.  You want people to know that you loved and cared for others.  You want people to have had better lives because you were in them.  If people can say these things about you, then you know you were a success.  You will know you made a difference.

I want to challenge each of you to spend your days fighting for what is right.  Fight for your family.  fight for good health.  fight for your company.  Fight for your career.  Fight for what is valuable in this life.  Fight for your faith.  Fight evil.  When your life comes to an end, you will have nothing to regret.

I hope that by taking the time to go through and look at each of these 15 challenges under a microscope has been helpful and worthwhile to you.  I know that it has been for me.  Jim Rohn is a mentor in my life.  I love the way he connected with people and taught them how to succeed in life.  Working at these challenges in our own lives can transform our lives.  I know I will be working on these in my own life.  Anyone want to join me?

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
