Whatever you fight will simply grow in size.
As it is magnified in your attention, so is it amplified in your experience.Monique McIntyre
So instead of that thing you’re fighting getting lesser, or smaller in size or stature… which is the point, yes? That’s why you’re fighting it, yes? To win the battle? To overcome? To overshadow? To eliminate or make smaller the problem you are fighting? … Instead, that thing you’re fighting is getting bigger. And bigger. Amplifying. Magnifying.
Strange concept, huh? But true.
Where attention goes, energy flows.
This is why fighting does nothing to actually solve a problem, instead the problem will simply continue to return and just when you thought… you… had… it… all… solved. But that also doesn’t mean that fighting doesn’t have value.
It also does not mean you won’t want to fight. Being a fighter is instilled in all of us. Everywhere we turn these days, from Twitter, to IG, to the television, to the radio, from sports to motivational speakers and so many more outlets, we hear about the “good fight.” Fighting has been a part of our zeitgeist for a very long time; probably, since the dawn of our appearance here on Earth.
And the advent of fighting doesn’t begin with the “good fight” and end with war. In our understanding of life, there has always been some variation of fighting. Fighting to survive. Fighting against the elements. Fighting to stay alive. Fighting to win territory. Fighting for dominance. Fighting for relevance. Fighting for the right to a possession. Fighting for the right to exist. Fighting… This is why war is such an ongoing part of our world. We find the “fight” noble, honorable, and admirable.
Some of us want to put “war” in one realm and leave our “good fight” in another realm. But then somewhere deep down we know, each is just another side of the coin, but they are the same coin. When you “fight” that you are a fighter, or that you like to fight, or that fighting is a valuable – or, at the very least, a valid – way of handling life… you are fighting just the same. It is not wrong to be a fighter. The opportunity is to transcend the fight. To discover something new that you’ve never known before, instead of continuing to go back to your old standby. There is a status quo of fighting, just as there is a status quo in every facet of human life.
The Good Fight, be it “good” or not, is still a fight. Fighting begets more of the same.
It’s your choice. Fight. Or. Ease. Choose what empowers you.
So, then. How will it change, you say? Yes, that is a great question. A fair question, given all I’ve said thus far. And that question deserves great inquiry. The answers are within. You. Always.
I only speak from my own experience. I have been a warrior at heart. And I have taught myself, and continue to teach myself, to leave my fight behind. One day at a time. ‘Cause some days it’s all I can do to see the fight for what it is – good, bad or otherwise.
And the win? Well, it’s all in perspective.
