I am totally attracted to friends who exhibit signs of strong leadership and purposeful action. This is a lifelong pattern, and as long as the person has strength of character as well as charisma, I am going to want to be in that person's company for a long time. I really appreciate steadfastness which is being steady. It perseveres. It is dependable. When steadfast, we remain true to our purpose; whatever happens. Steadfastness grows with challenge, but do not confuse it for being stubborn. Steadfastness finds its strength in discerning a direction that has meaning for us. Consider it being purposefully stubborn, if you will. Steadfastness is like a strong and sturdy ship with a destination in mind and heart. It is grounded in the most powerful of motivations. It can be flexible in approach but determined in destination. Water is steadfast. Try to stop it. If you do manage to block it, it will find a way around down, through, over or under. It is headed to the ocean.
