I remember studying history back in my good old school days! I loved history! It always taught me something from great leaders good or bad! I loved reading about the great Mughals, the khilji’s, the lodhi’s, Tuglag’s the kingdoms of Southern India like the Vijayanagara, the Bahaman and so on.
However nothing thrills me more to read about Julies Caesar, Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan! WOW! What awesome leaders they were! They did leave a trail of blood, but that is not what impress me. It is their strategy, approach and attitude that they had when faced with difficulties that impress me!
When Julies Caesar was in today’s England for a war, he was faced with a dilemma. His soldiers were disappointed and were not willing to fight as they felt very insecure by just looking at the Anglo- Saxons. They wanted to go back to Rome, feel safe at home and that looked nice to them. But this is what Julies Caesar did. He Burnt the entire fleet of Roman ships. When he did it, his soldiers knew that the only way back home is by winning the Anglo Saxons. And that is exactly what they did.
Quite often in our life, we feel very lethargic, tired and worn out! The easiest stuff that we could possibly do is to call it quits and hang our boots. That’s Easy! But that is not what we are called to be. We are called to fight on, and to hang on. To take challenges head on and be able to face challenges eye ball to eye ball, square in the face and say: No matter what it is, I can face this a little more, I can endure a little more pain. I will be standing at the end of the battle to see my victory, I will persevere and endure through pain to enjoy and experience the fruit of my labor!
Winning is worth it! Fight till the end!
