“He had shoot in his eyes”
Watching the History Channel during my workout this week, there was a special on Andrew Jackson, “Old Hickory.”
One occasion in 1804, the sheriff was afraid to apprehend a gentleman who was in contempt of court, Russell Bean. Jackson, a judge at the time, asked the sheriff to summons him as deputy.
Judge Jackson trailed the outlaw and found him carrying two guns and approached him directly, Jackson’s gun drawn.
The outlaw surrendered and Jackson was successful in apprehending him .
Days later, the outlaw, Russell Bean, was asked why he did not run or fight. Bean responded, “He had shoot in his eyes.”
This story is very intriguing to me as an excellent example of DETERMINATION. Jackson was not going to back down to this criminal and he was determined to make the arrest.
I ask you:
Whatever you do, are you doing it with determination?
Do you have “shoot” in your eyes?
I encourage you to conduct each task with purpose and determination and don’t back down!
