How loyal are you to your primary convictions, the things that matter most to you?  Will your level of loyalty persist in the face of adversity?

It seems to me that loyalty is a day by day conviction to something and/or someone over time and not a spontaneous thing.  It’s easy in the moment to profess that you are loyal to one cause or another, but loyalty can only validate itself and grow over longer spans of time.

Know your convictions and hold to those, even in the face of adversity.  Deeply loyal people of a group may dissent or disagree for a time, but in the end, they move forward together.  Strong groups that excel are built within loyalties to the greater good where participants value the direction for all, but share the personal convictions they must uphold.

First, know your convictions and live them.  Second, find your place to relate to bring value in those convictions to the greater good (especially within adversity).

“Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved.”   —  Dr. Martin Luther King  —
