Here's Blog Quote #634...
"The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority."
-Ralph Sockman, American Pastor-
How true of both.
If I had to add something...I'd say being in the minority tests your metal a bit more. Not easy to stay convinced and stand amidst the yappers, criticizers, and non-believers. Many a person who gave up, or in, too soon were likely right. If only they didn't get knocked off their belief pedestal, by some negative naysaying Nancy.
Go with your gut. Arm your mind with significant proof. Stand tall and strong against the masses--when they don't believe. After all--it's likely your knowledge and hours invested in the subject matter, blows theirs away. The easiest thing in the world--is for someone not engaged or uninformed--to knock something down.
Something to keep in mind!
That's my view...what say you?
