I'm Flexible!

"I'm flexible," is one of my common and favorite phrases.

I can be heard uttering this phrase in times of humor(which is often), and sometimes during the day-to-day of life's diverse and frequent negotiations, whether they be small or large. Often, it is a matter of attitude and doesn't include the utterance, just the act operating out of the mindset of flexibility. Simply navigating through life with any success requires the heart to be flexible.

Flexibility lies in the heart of the person who is creative. 
Flexibility breeds creativity, and creativity fuels flexibility...the bond between the two is a breeding ground for ingenuity...only a fool who is on his way to the death of productivity is wholly inflexible. Therefore, it is in our best interest to periodically evaluate our level of flexibility in life, to make sure it is at healthy levels.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
Additionally, the secret to resilience is flexibility.
Life has many bends, curves, and unforeseen zigzags often transforming the expected into the unexpected.
Since life is so flexible, why shouldn't we be?
The more flexible we make ourselves to be, we train ourselves to expect the unexpected. We learn to prepare to be surprised.
Flexibility is also a political tool of productivity. It often comes in the form of compromise. I've said in my book, The God Of Politics, that, " Sincerity of heart will produce the spirit of compromise."
Some consider compromise to be a sign of weakness. This is a destructive mistake.
I cite in my book, according to scripture, that God, on multiple occasions, compromised with his created beings, including the Prophet Moses, Prophet Abraham, King David, King Hezekiah, Abraham's nephew Lot, even the notoriously wicked King Ahab, among others. 

Is God weak? Of course not. Compromise is a sign of wisdom, strength, and love. Productivity is the fruit of flexibility.  Productivity is what fosters success in our many endeavors.
Since sincerity is the foundation that allows  compromise to flow from a productive heart of flexibility,  we would do well to often find ourselves saying, "I'm Flexible!"
