Your security, believe it or not, affects the way you stand, the way you walk, in short, your physical well being and self-confidence. A person without security is always running. They must take the first job offered, or nearly so. They sit nervously on life's chair because any small emergency throws them into the hands of others. Without security, a person must be too grateful. Gratitude is a fine thing in its place but a constant state of gratitude is a horrible place in which to live. A person with security can walk tall. They may appraise opportunities in a relaxed way, have time for judicious estimates and not be rushed by economic necessity.
A person with security can afford to resign from their job if their principles so dictate. A person always concerned about necessities, such as food and rent, education for children, can't afford to think in long range career terms. They must dart to the most immediate opportunity for ready cash. Without security, they will spend a lifetime of darting and dodging. A person with security can afford the wonderful privilege of being generous in family or neighbourhood emergencies. They can take a level stare into the eyes of any person - friend, stranger, or enemy. It shapes their personality and character.
The best security you have in this world is you. Your efforts, your leadership, and your ability to develop others as leaders.
