United YOU Stand

Conflict is a necessary part of life. Most conflicts that you face in life are the result of your path converging with the path of others.

How you use conflict is what matters.

One of Aesop's fables, "The Four Oxen and the Lion," is a story about a lion that tries to attack four oxen in a field. The oxen warn each other and whichever way the lion approaches he is met by horns and so cannot harm them.

One day, the oxen quarrel and graze separately. The lion easily picks them off one by one. The moral of this fable is, “United we stand, divided we fall."

As a young man, Abraham Lincoln received less than one year of formal education. He spent his childhood working on a farm. But he used his time well.

While he was plowing the fields, he memorized Aesop's fables. Lincoln filled his mind with wisdom. 

Years later, during the crisis between the states, Lincoln declared, "A nation divided against itself cannot stand."  Lincoln used the wisdom he imbibed as a youth to save the union.

With conflict (and money) it is how you use it that determines if you stand or fall.

  • The critical mass of two hydrogen atoms trying to occupy the same space fuels the sun that nourishes our solar system.
  • Tension on guitar strings can make magical music.

The moral of this story:
When you get into a conflict… don’t get down on yourself.  Conflict could be just the catalyst you need to drive you forward.
