Difficulties are a surety. Trials are a guarantee. It’s no secret that there are harsh realities of life, that come to distract and dissuade us from our journey. The challenges are coming and they can be fierce. My experience is that whenever you determine to become better, to change and to grow, you WILL be challenged.

I have taken the time I needed and I am back…with a vengeance.
Our last discussion touched on the subject of concession: specifically “never concede”. I earnestly urged you to never accept defeat in any area of your life. Today, I’d like to delve even further into the Hall Mantra and tell you to Never Compromise. Most often, when the word “compromise” is used, it is indicative of two or more parties, mutually settling differences or conflicts by agreeing to meet “somewhere in the middle”. Basically, each surrenders a portion of what is truly desired in an attempt to find common ground that is favorable, or acceptable, to all involved. In this regard, compromises are necessary and needful. However, there is a more appropriate definition for our discussion:
