There is a proverb that says that it is not always the baboon with the fiercest tusks that is the master, neither does the “king lion” necessarily assert his dominion by winning a physical fight – it is something far more subtle than the physical - it is the manifestation of some soul quality of the animal.
And so it is with we humans, it is not always the biggest and strongest physically who rule - the ruler becomes so by reason of the mysterious soul quality which we call Spiritedness, and which some refer to as “nerve,” or “mettle,” or “sand.”
Have you got some spirit or do you get intimidated by people? You need to realise that the next person is not better than you. They may know something you don't know, but most likely you may know something they don't know, no matter how little. So have some spirit and take charge- your choice!
