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?
