Man Up Soldier!!!


The old saying goes "You reap what you sow". Yet many people don't want to face the consequences of what they have planted. Or they don't want to sow what is necessary for future success. To be specific, there are many young men who get girls pregnant and don't want to take on the responsibility of raising the child. Further, there are people who love to shop with borrowed money, but do not want to deal with paying their debts back. The point is, we have to get to the point where we embrace accountability for the choices we have made and deal with them, rather than waiting on others to rescue us or choosing not to deal with them all together. One sign of maturity is being willing to accept the outcome of one's actions whether good or bad. We do ourselves and others a tremendous disservice when we refuse to take ownership of our choices. Proof of this is found in all of the single mother homes, failed relationships, failed business ventures, etc. We all at some point have to Man Up and face reality. Only when we do this, can we walk a higher path that is worth being emulated by others.
