HOW DO YOU DEFINE STRENGTH ?


HOW DO YOU DEFINE STRENGTH ?

 

Hi:

Is strength hard, unbending, solid, and durable or is it soft, gentle, flexible and weak?

Most of us will vote for the former and a tiny minority will stand by the latter version.

Small children and even babies defy the above majority view. Look at the dancing

and gymnastics. The more younger, flexible and supple they are, the better they

perform in these and many other fields.

Even there are examples from mother nature. In the midst of hurricane force winds

most often the palm trees survive while the hard ones give way and  are broken down.

By the same token an older tree getting close to death will become hard, brittle and

susceptible to fire and fierce winds. Similarly at the moment of death all creatures go

into completer stiffness and inflexibility.

 

In negotiation process the party which adopts the high way or my way seldom succeeds

compared to those who adopt the attitude of give and take and flexibility. As Laotzu

reminds us ,”the hard and stiff will be broken while the soft and supple will prevail.”

 

A presentation which takes into consideration the views of the opposite side will surely

be better received as compared to the one which is too dogmatic. You got to respect both sides

of the picture. Better relate to others more, listen more, allow your viewpoints to be

challenged, bend when necessary, knowing you are actually choosing strength. Begin to

understand that strength is in weakness and flexibility and not in ego worship.

 

In the interest of the masses if both sides of congress and senate worked in unison, we shall

all be better off and  there is more possibility of regaining the super power status we once had.
