Great people do what needs to be done.
It’s like drowning, it’s like being totally engulfed on all sides by some thick substance that you want to be free from, it’s choking the life right out of you, and you feel helpless to do anything about it. It feels like you’re drowning in a cup of broccoli cheddar soup as you flail about desperately trying to find the edge of the bowl in a last ditch effort to save yourself. The more you try, the deeper you go until a giant 1/2 inch stock of broccoli takes you under and you’re done.
That’s what the pressure, deadlines, problems, negative self-talk, peer pressure, long hours, competition, overbearing bosses, money problems, marital issues, child issues, past life problems, and the sense of helplessness feels like. This overwhelming feeling makes it difficult, if not impossible, to be positive and giving at work, at home, and at play.
I’m not too far off of the mark, am I? You’ve been there, you know that your interpersonal relationships are requiring more from you, but you’re too overwhelmed to give it more effort. Maybe you’re able to give it all for a few hours, but somewhere between the 300th fire you’ve had to put out and having your project fall behind because people aren’t cooperating, you lose all sense of positivity and become just another disgruntled human being. Bah Humbug!
But these are the times when you have to muster up your Navy Seal like determination and muscle through to do what you know you need to do, stay optimistic, believe in yourself, believe in others, and be a shining beacon on a hill. Sounds corny right? You just want to complain damn it! But you owe it to yourself to be the better person. Not easy I know, but being a Navy Seal isn’t for the faint of heart either, being a trained Navy Seal is an honor, a privilege reserved for those willing to do what others will not. It is because of this that society honors and reveres our Seal Teams.
If we have the privilege of knowing sound management techniques, healthy spousal habits, good parenting skills, then it is our responsibility to act as we should no matter what our feelings are telling us. No matter what muck we may be floating in, we do what needs to be done, to win, to give, and to honor. ©
Theodore Roosevelt quote in its entirety:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
We deserve to respect ourselves and others.
