maneuver - a movement or series of moves
requiring skill and care; a careful planned
scheme of action.
At times, I feel like I am progressing in slow
motion, as my plans, goals, and dreams
are left to linger on the side of the road
while I attempt to get my “self” in order.
When I am in this punch-drunk, stupor
state, I am quick to analyze all of the opposing
forces that are limiting my output and success.
Yet, rarely do I stand full faced in the mirror
and point to the culprit who has made off
with my enthusiasm and motivation.
And with this frame of mind I will pray
for God’s guidance, as I did a few days back,
taking my issue to God for some grace.
More often than not, I receive a message
that might have been conceived by William
Stephen Belichick, former lacrosse star
and now coach of the New England Patriots,
a message laying out a common sense,
but creative solution to my situation:
As I read this message and work to
incorporate it, I have been accessing my
actual maneuverability, realizing I have
often dug a well honed rut, or better yet,
forged a rail, that I continue to ride, no
matter what the situation.
As I leave my rut/rail behind, and explore
on untethered, I am surprised to see
opportunities that I have been missing,
closure I have been avoiding, and success
I have neglected.
How’s your maneuverability lately?
The essence of success is maneuverability,
making adjustments as needed or desired,
shifting course to avoid pitfalls or negative
consequences, taking full advantage of positive
currents or momentum, open to every advantage,
aware of potential possibilities or oversights,
hands steady on the wheel, mind strategically
fixed on the destination, fully knowing what
is intended, with clarity of purpose and
performance; keenly transfixed.
This maneuverability often is the deciding
factor in the overcoming of diversity,
the unexpected, the setback, the uncharted
delay – assisting with an attitude prepared
for counter response and correction –
able to think creatively under pressure,
to maintain emotional balance, unafraid
of risk or consequence, locked and loaded
for success – with the face and soul of a
living hero, capable and courageous.
