A man unwilling . . .

A man unwilling to fight for what he wants deserves what he gets.

– Captain Hook ABC’s Once Upon a Time

I love the TV show Once Upon a Time. Oddly enough, I found a true message from one of the villains.

Rumpelstiltskin, before he has all his power, is a coward. Captain Hook takes Rumpelstiltskin’s wife, and Rumple asks Captain Hook to release her. Capt. Hook refuses and challenges Rumple to a duel. Rumple refuses to fight because he is afraid. This quote is Hook’s response to Rumple’s cowardliness. And, Hook makes an excellent point. There are things in life that we want, but we must be willing to work for them and pursue them no matter the challenges in front of us. We can dream all we want, but unless we start acting, we will get nowhere, and we cannot complain about unfulfilled dreams if we are not actively trying to pursue them.
