Under the gun is an English poker expression which means “under pressure to act first”.
For me this translates perfectly to modern day society where we all deal with constant pressure to be someone, do something etc … . This may be the pressure from a friend or family member, from your boss or partner, from your peers or even from “the way how things should be done” as prescribed by society
To be able to act under the gun, takes courage. But this courage is vital to act to progress.
Don’t be afraid to act under the gun and make things happen your way.
