Drive On, Continue Mission, Towards Success

I chose this as my six word memoir because I realize that things are going to stand in the way of what I want to accomplish. Sometimes I may need to go around, over, or through the obstacle in front of me and this memoir helps me to keep that in mind. It reminds me when things get difficult and something stands in the way to drive on with my mission towards success. I may have to change course, but it is important to continue the mission towards success.

I believe this will be important for me to remember as walls and barriers are always going to be looming. I see these walls and barriers as challenges and letting us know we are moving in the right direction. To achieve what you want you can't passively go between the walls and barriers, but must at times negotiate them by going over or through them. 

It is important to understand that these walls and barriers may take many forms. They can be that person who says that what you are seeking is impossible, that paperwork roped in red tape, or an ideology that rejects what you are seeking. All of these must be treated the same and I will remember to Drive On, Continue Mission, Towards Success.

My Signature Themes

RELATOR

Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls

you toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in

fact, you may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends—

but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are

comfortable with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a

deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their

dreams; and you want them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a

certain amount of risk—you might be taken advantage of—but you are willing to accept that risk. For

you a relationship has value only if it is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself

to the other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk together. The more you

risk together, the more each of you proves your caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real

friendship, and you take them willingly.

RESTORATIVE

You love to solve problems. Whereas some are dismayed when they encounter yet another

breakdown, you can be energized by it. You enjoy the challenge of analyzing the symptoms,

identifying what is wrong, and finding the solution. You may prefer practical problems or conceptual

ones or personal ones. You may seek out specific kinds of problems that you have met many times

before and that you are confident you can fix. Or you may feel the greatest push when faced with

complex and unfamiliar problems. Your exact preferences are determined by your other themes and

experiences. But what is certain is that you enjoy bringing things back to life. It is a wonderful feeling

to identify the undermining factor(s), eradicate them, and restore something to its true glory.

Intuitively, you know that without your intervention, this thing—this machine, this technique, this

person, this company—might have ceased to function. You fixed it, resuscitated it, rekindled its

vitality. Phrasing it the way you might, you saved it.

RESPONSIBILITY

Your Responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership for anything you commit to,

and whether large or small, you feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. Your good

name depends on it. If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look for ways to

make it up to the other person. Apologies are not enough. Excuses and rationalizations are totally

unacceptable. You will not quite be able to live with yourself until you have made restitution. This

conscientiousness, this near obsession for doing things right, and your impeccable ethics, combine to

create your reputation: utterly dependable. When assigning new responsibilities, people will look to you first because they know it will get done. When people come to you for help—and they soon will—

you must be selective. Your willingness to volunteer may sometimes lead you to take on more than

you should.

POSITIVITY

You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the

situation. Some call you lighthearted. Others just wish that their glass were as full as yours seems to

be. But either way, people want to be around you. Their world looks better around you because your

enthusiasm is contagious. Lacking your energy and optimism, some find their world drab with

repetition or, worse, heavy with pressure. You seem to find a way to lighten their spirit. You inject

drama into every project. You celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more

exciting and more vital. Some cynics may reject your energy, but you are rarely dragged down. Your

Positivity won’t allow it. Somehow you can’t quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive,

that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one must never lose one’s sense of

humor.
