So You Want To Be First

So you want to be first

Someone always has to go first. They are trailblazers, Trendsetters, Guinea Pigs. They are the first to be wounded, ridiculed, laughed at, made fun of, mocked, and killed. Those that follow them reap the benefits of their courage, strength, and their blood.
That’s a FRANK Thought!!!
If anything is ever going to be done or get done, someone has to go first. Now, there are a lot of firsts that you could be and the way you handle this responsibility determines how those that follow will act and react. So, if you want to go first, go first in something that matters.
Think about all of the “first” people throughout history. A lot of them only gained recognition and respect years after going first or years after they had died. That’s what first means. It means that you are a trendsetter, a trailblazer, or a guinea pig. If you are willing to be those things, then, you may be ready to go first.
Being first sounds great. But, it is only great if the first person is one of integrity and strength. Being first means that you will be the first one to be wounded. You will be the first one to be criticized and talked about. If you are willing to be ridiculed, laughed at, and made fun of, mocked, or even die, then, you may be ready to go first.
Most people think of going first as a privilege. But, first carries a lot of weight and those that are first must be able to bear that weight. It takes courage and those who follow them reap the benefits of that courage, their strength, and sometimes – their blood. So, if you want to go first, go first in something that matters to those that follow.
That’s a FRANK Thought!!!
