Don’t Sell Out Your Convictions for Conveniences

“Learn to place value on your convictions.” Isn’t it interesting that one kilogram of dirt and one kilogram of diamonds weight the same, but one of them is of greater value. Decide in your life what is dirt and what is diamonds, and live towards that.

“A conviction of self-worth and passion for ideals fuse in a life attitude that is positive, free, noble and spiritually enhancing.” By Bill Jay

“Always understand that the greatest thing you have going for you is your convictions.” When you try to live for convenience, you pay a price that is often very painful. Make sure that your life is founded on convictions, deeply rooted convictions. Let your business be a conviction, let your financial prosperity be a conviction, let your values be a conviction to you. Don’t compromise them.

“He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions.” Louisa May Alcott

A man or a woman without convictions will always be unstable and double minded.

“Each of you, for himself, by himself and on his own responsibility, must speak. And it is a solemn and weighty responsibility, and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of pulpit, press, government, or the empty catchphrases of politicians. Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let man label you as they may. If you alone of all the nation shall decide one way, and that way be the right way according to your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country- hold up your head! You have nothing to be ashamed of.” by Mark Twain

“Whatever you say, say it with conviction” by Mark Twain

Make a list today of some convictions in your life:
  • I am absolutely convinced that I am uniquely gifted.
  • I am absolutely convinced that I should prosper.
  • I am absolutely convince that my business dealings will be successfully and prosperous.
  • I am absolutely convinced that my children love me, and I am convinced that I love them.

List convictions in your life that are dear to you. Adhere to them and make sure you do not compromise them.
