Who I Want To Be

- J. Christy Ramsey     


I act

I separate myself from anxiety

I am quiet when attacked

I am always clear in my beliefs

I am amused by bullies

I seek to challenge rather than comfort

I value responsibility over surveys

I reject my culture’s definition

I get my work done

I rejoice when my approval level drops

I spend time resting and playing

I spend time with my wife and family

I focus on the strong and the brave

I free hostages

I always take criticism impersonally

I last longer than those that oppose me

I am persistent in the face of opposition

I am outrageous rather than outraged

I stay in relationship with people

I love taking a punch

I connect with others

I can choose many responses

I sustain in the face of sabotage

I respond to crisis out of my best self

I am less anxious than those I serve

I disarm terrorists

I seek to play with people not save them

I am calm when threatened

I fight only real threats

I expect my leadership to be rejected

I continue toward my goal at all times

I am vulnerable and transparent

I am immune to temper tantrums

soar and dive

I exercise body and spirit

I will die

I put my hope in God

I demand my responsibilities

I pay the cost

I expect punishment for good deeds

I seek to understand others

I expect some to misunderstand me

I learn from criticism

I may be wrong

I seek and use advice

I watch the compass not the clock

I lead instead of manage

I transform not transact

I learn and change

I seek the important not the urgent

I am a non-anxious presence

I get direction from dreams

I give away control

I handle with care

I take the long term view

I announce when I am wrong.

I communicate support, empathy & truth

I assume ignorance not malice
