On 1st December 1955, Rosa Parks, a seamstress in a local department store in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to vacate her seat in the colored section of the local bus for a white passenger, after the white section had filled up.
Her resistance led to her arrest and ignited several protests that led to the emancipation of the colored in the United States.
Rosa Parks drew courage from within herself and decided to save her pride even though she stood the risk of being jailed or even killed. If you seek to save your life, you will eventually lose it. When a man ceases to fear for his life, no force can stop him, living or dead. No one can encourage you better than yourself. It is all in you.
There is such an irresistible power in each one of us. We have such potent force lying within us that when released, no force can resist. If you truly believe, you will move mountains.
Severally when offered the chance of being freed, Nelson Mandela refused and stood his ground that his people must be allowed to live freely and rule in his country. This force kept him active for 27 years in incarceration, some of which he spent in the loneliest places on earth, Robben Island being one of such.
This force within us is powerful enough to not only change our lives but also change the world. Unfortunately, many people go to their graves without even knowing they carry such power.
Former President Obama activated his and defied all odds to become the first black President of the United States.
Are you willing to draw on that power? Do you want to rock your world? Are you tired of your present status?
