Lion's Den Tee
Old Testament. Book of Daniel. Chapter 6. Never compromise.
Crazy story about this one.
Back in 2018, we shot the “About” video for Bearded Banker; where it came from, what it means and why it’s important (you can find that video under the About tab on the website). At the end of the video, I mention our now tag line, ‘Success Without Compromise’. Honestly, at the time it just kind of rolled off the tongue and I was happy with it. I wasn’t even sure where it came from as I’ve never heard it before. Fast forward to 2020 and I was discussing the tag line with our graphic designer so we can make a stand alone tee for it. The designer asked me if I had any inspiration ideas or photos he could use. I didn’t, so I decided to google it. Of course a bunch of links came up, which wasn’t surprising, I wasn’t so arrogant to think I was the first person to say that line, however, it was where it had been used before that was the crazy part.
The first link I clicked mentioned the Bible, and I thought hmm, that’s interesting but not only was it a theme in an Old Testament bible story, it was the moral of The Book of Daniel, which of course is my name. I was pretty blown away (maybe it was a sign?!). I’m not religious so this was news to me. The story of Daniel is rooted around him not compromising his faith in the face of persecution which gets him thrown into the lions den. Per Daniel “God sent an angel to close the lions' jaws” and he comes out of the pit unscathed. The King then commands all those who conspired against Daniel to be thrown to the lions and that all bow down to the God of Daniel.
Our definition of Success Without Compromise has evolved for today’s day. Never compromise your morals, your character or your self-esteem because even if they throw you to the lions you will come out unscathed.
