How great a price are we willing to pay for our convictions?

“…One of life’s great temptations is to yield to the popular side of an issue. When confronted with the prospect of standing firm and holding fast to a conviction at the cost of security, it is a temptation to compromise and to rationalise. Under pressure we often conclude that the cost is too great and the results too meagre to warrant the sacrifice.

Ph-125521 Indeed, it is often reasoned that the popular side is the winning side and that to follow the unpopular road of our inner convictions might place us on the losing side. The great Leaders of the world have always been true to themselves and have had the courage of their convictions… The challenge for us is not which side will win but how great a price are we willing to pay for our convictions?
