‘You’ve got to have a strong foundation before you start to try to save the world or help other people.’ (Richard Branson)
I’ve thought a lot about the importance of stance. Stance is steeped deeply in beliefs, values ethics and purpose. It’s the root of agency.
Recently, after watching Netflix’s Legend of Bruce Lee, I have been thinking a lot about the ground beneath our feet too. This is what Jesus meant spiritually-existentially by rock vs sand, and Bowlby psychologically-relationally by a secure base.
Without a firm foundation, I’m unstable, lack resilience and am easily knocked sideways. If the ground is secure, I can take a stance, enabling traction and movement. What foundation is your life and work built upon?
