Idea 10 was stated this way: "Idea 10: Watch the inauguration and pick out something that needs talked about. Send the quote to some friends and ask for their thoughts."
So here goes: "We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."
As I have been processing this thought that Obama shared, I have a few observations. So many times our posture defines our relationships and our interactions. We come into a situation with a frown and arms crossed . . . or conversely we come into a situation with a smile and an embrace. The way that we posture ourselves will impact how people perceive us and will open or close opportunities to us.
Our external posture is simply a reflection of our mental, psychological and spiritual posture. Are we filled with grace, peace, hope and love or the opposites. Ever day I meet people who decide between the extended hand or the clenched fist.
I want my life to be an extended hand . . . what do you want for your life?
