FIGHT THE BAD FIGHT
It was the kind of news that could make the ears of many people tingle. When I heard it the first time, I chose to dismiss it but could not when it became like the hottest gossip in town.
Then the grand finale came and it was settled. Money had indeed changed hands and someone was many dollars richer just by FIGHTING. You may want to dismiss it as overindulgence. Why should someone make such a huge amount of money just after delivering a few punches?
A few punches you mean? If only you know the amount of work that went into ‘those few punches.’ Just like a drawing by a renowned artist will fetch millions of dollars and you wonder why someone will buy a few streaks of brush strokes for such a tidy sum. Just like an actress will just utter a few lines and become a few millions richer. Just the way a musician will stretch vocal cords and walk away with someone’s lifetime earnings in a few minutes. Just like a writer like me and my contemporaries will write a few lines and smile to the bank!
And you wonder: why all this?
They are all being rewarded for their creativity; for standing in a place where they function well and are getting paid for it. Each person chooses a path in life. They have chosen that. May it remain smooth for them.
For me, I am in the mood!
Does anyone know someone who is ready to put down a ‘Floyd Mayweather’ reward for a fight? Is there anyone who wants to challenge me? For that type of money, I am ready to fight. Whether it is to fight my way into a man’s heart…….now that’s not a ‘bad’ fight, is it? Or to fight in the ring and go away richer. I am ready to fight. What type of fight will make a man win such a tidy sum? I am ready to ‘fight my way’ into my readers’ hearts.
I have read about the ‘good fight’ in the Bible. Read I Timothy 6: 12 and II timothy 4:7. I call the one I refer to in this piece ‘a bad fight.’ This is not to belittle it but to distinguish it from the biblical one.
Fight your own ‘bad fight.’ Discover where you can fight your way to prosperity. It may not be as enormous as that of Floyd but you will be able to earn a decent living.
I have found mine. That’s why you are reading this piece!
