Motivational Monday - Pause and Reflect

I've never been one for 'herd mentality' but, on occasion, I think we all fall into the mindset of agreeing with something, simply to maintain the peace. Avoiding confrontation is often wise but, not at the expense of others. As well, silence can inadvertently indicate that you are in agreement with the masses.


Time to pause and reflect


When others jump aboard the negativity ship or support something that you really don't agree with, perhaps it's time to pause and reflect. Stand up for what YOU believe in, even if you feel you're alone in doing so.

Happy Monday everyone!

Debe- certainly something to think about. This is why it is so important to encourage our children to be comfortable standing up for their beliefs.

Debe great advice.  It easy to not say any think, but takes courage to stand up for what you believe, especially if it is not the popular view point.

Great quote - I hadn't heard it before. It is harder to speak our mind when we are in the minority, but that's when it's important to do so.

We really need to hear this, in the current climate. Standing up for what we believe in, is what this country was founded on. It's not the easy road, but the right road for me.

going along to get along or enabling appears as a pleasant experience often or how else can it fool the populations over & over? The narrow path is more rewarding. Why? Its personal, intimate & deeply satisfying.

I often stand alone in my beliefs, often I don't post here because of the negativity it might attract, I believe in freedom of speech and thought, but not that we should get attacked for doing do and herds have a habit of doing that.

Debe, that is a great reminder to all of us to think for ourselves. Group think can be dangerous. We see it everyday on TV. God gave us a mind for purpose. We should use it.

Hi Debe:

That's a wonderful thought - pause and reflect - that can fit so many situations that come our way. Being impulsive may not be the wise choice.

Good morning Debe, what a nice way to start the day.  In this hectic world of real estate, taking a step back and reflecting on your day and where you are is a healthy habit to establish. Have a great day!

Hello Debe - an interesting topic that has an impact on each of us whether it be small or not so minute.  The bandwagon may appear full but it can be so empty.
