Will you make the choice to remain loyal even when things seem beyond hope?

Monday Morning Motivation – Loyal

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss "loyal."

Hopefully, the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week. Please feel free to forward the newsletter along to others who you think would benefit from the content.


Just about everyone in our life will disappoint us at some point in time. It may be a big or a small disappointment, but you can pretty much take it to the bank that the disappointment will come.

When it does, we will each be faced with a choice:

  • Do we push through the disappointment and remain loyal to those in our lives, or do we decide that enough is enough and forgo our loyalty?

Most everyone would like to believe that they will push through. But the reality is, tough times sometimes cause us to move away from those to whom we were once exceptionally close.

That is because remaining loyal is a choice. We each have the ability to choose to stay or to go. And, oftentimes, the near-term, easiest choice is to forgo loyalty and move on. Remaining loyal is particularly challenging given that today’s society is such that all the focus on “me first” encourages a lack of loyalty.

Many times, it seems easier to simply move on and conclude that things never were as they seemed—that remaining loyal is not worth it, that we need to “cut our losses.” However, if you embrace the challenges and push through the tough times, remaining loyal can have incredible rewards.

If we remain loyal through the trials we face, we can emerge on the other side with a much deeper and closer relationship. It is not always easy. But it is almost always worth it—in spite of what society tells us about giving up and looking out for number one.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • Will you make the choice to remain loyal even when things seem beyond hope?
