Motivational Power Quote

 

Stand Like a Rock

 

"In matters of style,

swim with the current;

in matters of principle,

stand like a rock."

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd US President

   

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

Be a person of principle and stand like a rock.  

Our principles become our guiding light.  Principles are internal and expressed externally through our actions.   

One's principles are a matter of choice.    

A person who has a foundation of strong moral principles will be seen as a person with character.  Unsound principles is like standing on quicksand, we will not have solid footing and will eventually sink. 

Our principles are the way we see our world and will be reflected in the type of decisions we make.  

Principles are personal and business codes of conduct; it's our moral compass and can be measured.   

Stand like a rock through the storms of life, and when the storm passes you will be standing as a person of principle.

Good post!  Too many people out there have the spines of a jelly fish and just go with the flow.

Property Management the way it SHOULD be.

Principled individuals are a dying breed amongst the sheep and veal calves of today's world. Nice quote from the 3rd Pres.

Your post reminds me of the rescue scene I saw on TV last week (not sure when it really happened).  The guy was just about to go over Niagra Falls and had his foot wedged between 2 rocks.  Those rocks were his anchor indeed and saved his life.

Hi Lou, Thomas Jefferson had so many great quotes worth repeating. I just helped my 13 year study all about him in American History.  He was quite a man.

You are correct their are fewer people who have a principal driven life, and that creates a cutting edge advantage for those who do.

That brings up a question that I had to deal with 16 years ago: "Can principles change or be changed?" After 11 months of studying about 14 hours a day, I answered the question with a "yes." Because of that yes answer, I'm still here today. A no answer probably would have resulted in suicide.
