When under attack have a strategy in place long before you raise the drawbridge to your castle.
Have you ever found yourself under attack even though you play by the rules?
Attacks come and try to stifle the life that you want to live. That is the main purpose of an attack to place obstacles in your path.

Listening to a radio program called Democracy Now, Michael Moore, a film maker, has been under scrutiny because of a movie he produced called “Sicko”.
Mr. Moore is known for producing top quality documentary films.
In his movie he brought to the forefront how other countries are able to provide better health care for their citizens than the United States. The U.S. has been known as one of the wealthiest countries on the face of the earth.
The radio program brought out today how Michael Moore has been under attack from corporations. There is a fear that his film could trigger a populous uprising against the status quo. It was reported that hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent to try and stop Michael Moore’s movie.
Pharmaceutical corporations and the health insurance industry may have concerns regarding Mr. Moore’s documentaries.
In the book “Deadly Spin” by Wendell Potter, he speaks out as an insurance company insider.
Wendell Potter expressed that his attack on Michael Moore was to wage a negative public relations campaign. This was done to neutralize the effect of Michael Moore’s movie.
Mr. Potter is an insurance company guru that stepped forward and apologized to Mr. Moore for his attacks.
Michael Moore’s movies are well received by the public in spite of the spin created to negate their positive content.
When you are under attack work within righteousness because there is justice for the righteous.
Attacks come upon us in many forms. Do not allow attacks to keep you down.
I once worked for a mental health center. I remember at week’s end, in the middle of a double shift, hearing the tenth story in counseling sessions about another heart break. At some point during the session I dosed off from lack of sleep.
Nothing is more embarrassing than a client saying, “Hey, are you listening?” It was 2:00 A.M. and the java was not working. The client had been under attack from an intimate troubled friend.
The counselor in your life is a guiding force that can point you in the right direction.
It’s up to you to go to work after telling your story. We all have stories to tell.
“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Abraham Lincoln.
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with every success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau.
A detour from your path does not have to derail your path to success.
Know your attackers to defeat them. Work from within your strengths to counter the attacks of others.
Attacks can make you stronger if you meet them head on and continue to do what is right.
Attacks from others trigger the will to fight for your own survival.
So hey, if you’re listening always stand up for righteousness.
Take a stand to do the right thing and universal forces align to help you accomplish what you set out to achieve.
When under attack do not quit, don’t give in and you will win.
