Pick your battles wisely.
Yo what's good people? It's ya boy Brad H coming back at you once again with another edition of "Brad H's Perspective". As always, I want to thank those of you who take out the time to read these blog postings. I appreciate it very much, and the positive feedback that I've received inspires me a lot. Whether the feedback was left directly through this blog, or another format, I thank you all so much. I always enjoy reading what you all think. I know it's been a hot minute since I've updated this blog with new content. Besides the usually, I've been coming up with ideas to write about. At any rate, your boy is back once again. Alright lets get into this weeks topic. It deals with picking and choosing your battles wisely.
Now we're all aware that any person, who is of a sound mind knows that nobody can win at everything. Many of us believe that we know every single thing there is to know about life, which sure as heck isn't the case. Some of us believe that we're good at everything we attempt to do, which sure as heck isn't the case either. It's okay to have a positive outlook of believing that we can be successful at anything we try. Setting goals is always a positive thing. However, the truth is that no matter how hard we try, there will be some things that we just won't get. Every single human-being has something, or a host of things that we're talented at or passionate about. Those are the things that we should focus on becoming better at. We have to learn to wisely pick and choose our battles.
Lets take a few examples here. There are some people who are good at sports and athletics. There are others who may be scholars, or good at debating others. If you're not a good debater, then you probably shouldn't be debating with someone who is experienced at it. The logic of picking our battles wisely can be easily applied to our everyday lives as well. I'll give you another example. Often times, we will encounter people who have strong personalities. I'm in no way saying that having a strong personality is a bad thing, however, a lot of people like this tend to believe they know everything. People like this will often argue with others back and forth until they get the last word in. There are also times when you may have two people with strong personalities going at it. Those are the worse battles to be frank, and those battles are often no win situations. In these types of scenarios, walking away may be the wisest choice to make. Unfortunately, some people have too much pride to walk away. They view it as a sign of weakness.
Sometimes it's just wise to walk away and let things be. This doesn't necessarily mean that you've lost the battle, it just means that you're wise enough to know which battles to fight for yourself. Wisdom overcomes ignorance in the end. Unfortunately, I'm seeing the number of wise people decreasing, and the levels of ignorance among people seems to be on the steady rise. I suppose the most important thing that I would want someone to take from this topic is to stick to what you know. Like I mentioned earlier, everyone is good at something, so it's important to focus on the things you're good at. Work on expand upon whatever talents or attributes you have. Don't ever allow yourself to get caught up in what others think, or allow yourself to be pulled into a battle you're not comfortable fighting. Remember to stick to what you know, and don't let the little things get to you too much.
Well that's it for this edition of "Brad H's Perspective". I hope that anyone who read through this edition enjoyed it. Again, I apologize for being away so long. We all know that life unfortunately sometimes gets in the way of doing the things we enjoy. However, we will always be able to make time for the things we're passionate about. I hope to be writing you all again next week sometime. I'm still in the process of updating the hubs that I wrote from the challenge on Hubpages. I think I'm halfway through now, so keep staying tuned for those. Alright I'm out. Peace, love, and blessings to all.
