A wise man of the Orient once remarked, "There are 3 kinds of people in all types of organizations - rowboat people, sailboat people & steamboat people.
Rowboat people need to be pushed along.
Sailboat people move when a favorable wind is blowing.
Steamboat people move continuously, through calm or storm. They usually are masters of themselves, their surroundings & their fate.

“Occasions do not make a man either strong or weak, but they show what he is.” - Thomas a Kempis.
Pro 24:10 (GNT): “If you are weak in a crisis, you are weak indeed.”
2 Tim 1:7 (NIRV): “God gave us his Spirit. And the Spirit doesn’t make us weak and fearful. Instead, the Spirit gives us power and love. He helps us control ourselves.”
