How flexible are you?

Someone once asked the Duke of Wellington how he defeated Napoleon.  The Duke replied, "Napoleon made his plans with wire.  I made my plans with string." 

Recently, I have taken an interest in watching gymnastic routines.  I am intrigued by the strength and flexibility that gymnasts posses.  Watching the different gymnasts and their styles remind me of human nature and effective leadership.  If a gymnast is tense, they are not going to be as flexible to perform at optimum levels.  If they are not flexible, they are prone to injury.  If they waiver the slightest bit during their routine, it can throw off the rest of their performance.  If a gymnast runs and questions themselves before they reach their destination, they lose momentum.  If they don't put their arms up at the end of their routine, an otherwise flawless effort looks as if it is lacking follow-through and balance.  It is a constant balancing act for a gymnast to succeed.  Some equipment like the high bars requires momentum to keep going.  Can you think of any instance in your life where this is evident?  Flexibility is necessary in every instance of life.  Without it, we struggle much more than we need to.  Just as the Duke of Wellington illustrated, flexibility is necessary to overcome any challenge you are facing.

Nobody is exempt from change.  It is all around us.  The key is to embrace it and always remember... "Flexible people NEVER get bent out of shape."
