A conviction is a strong belief that so governs your decisions that you are willing to die for it. History is full of leaders who changed the world because of their convictions.
Convictions are a strong inward compass. Ethics result from this inward compass. They show us our true north. The go on vivid display when we are under pressure. Someone once said that humans like tea. Our colors show up when we get into hot water.
Convictions are stronger than ideas or feelings. Take a look at the following:
Idea – A thought or concept which is usually attractive because it is novel or because it is yours.
Opinion – An idea you feel emotionally tied to, but which might change as your emotions change.
Belief – A strong inclination not only tied to emotions but based upon thoughtful reflection.
Commitment – a decision to embrace a belief or principle based on your emotions, mind, and will.
Conviction - A strong belief that so governs your decisions that you are willing to die for it.
What color are you when you get in hot water?
