Be Firm in Your Resolve . . . .

Motivational Power Quote


Be Firm in Your Resolve . . . .  

"I am a man of fixed and unbending principles,

the first of which is to flexible at all times."

Everett Dirksen, American Politician   


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Be firm in your resolve . . . .  

When a person is firm in their resolve they know what they want to achieve, they know how they will achieve it and they're steadfast in their resolve to achieve a successful outcome.  

But the person is also flexible.  

They may get taken off my course at times in their life. But they will adjust their sails in the winds of life to get them back on the course that keeps them moving in the direction of their goals.  

When they encounter a challenging situation they will look at their long term objectives and for the best possible solutions. They find their solutions and to implement a plan of action, by remaining flexible in their thinking and action.    

Being flexible does not compromise a person's principles or their goals.   

Flexibility allows a person to look at their circumstances and adjust to withstand the storms in their life. A person that remains rigid in their thinking and actions cannot adjust to the circumstances and like the limb of a tree will break under pressure.      

Be firm in your resolve, but remain flexible.

Leave it up to a politician to come up with a quote that slices both ways.

Hmmm, Lou, an oxymoron for us to chew on tonight - I can always rely on you for a good motivational post! Be firmly flexible :)
