Ronnie Oldham's Core Values

Intelligence

"Those who are victorious plan effectively and change decisively. They are like a great river that maintains its course but adjusts its flow…they have form but are formless. They are skilled in both planning and adapting and need not fear the result of a thousand battles; for they win in advance, defeating those that have already lost."
                                                                                        Sun Tzu,
                                                                                                                     Chinese Warrior and Philosopher 100 B.C.

    Intelligence is more than the accumulation of facts and information. It is the understanding and wisdom derived from reason and accurate thinking. Intelligence is creative and pragmatic. It uses the scientific approach to problem-solving and a seeks deeper understanding of humans and our environment. Intelligence requires questioning. In fact, it is more concerned with the questions than with the answers. Intelligence is the ability and willingness to ask why and not be satisfied with overly simplistic or evasive solutions. Intelligence is the foundation of contributive liberty and the cornerstone of a principle-centered life.

    I am lucky to have been blessed with the faculty for rapid learning. My intelligence has allowed me to take maximum advantage of diverse experiences, each building on the successes of the prior. The culmination of these individual success is my graduation Cum Laude from Oklahoma Baptist University. Returning to college as a non-traditional student turned out to be one of the most valuable decisions I have ever made. I have challenged my mind to perform at an even higher level. My success as a business student is a vindication of my attitude toward intelligence and quest for continuous self-improvement.

    I will utilize my talents effectively and strategically. I will become known as an intelligent, dynamic, articulate, talented leader, manager and sales professional who inspires confidence and respect, grasps ideas and concepts quickly, is adept at organizing complex projects, recognizes or creates solutions to problems, and who believes in setting and achieving worthwhile goals. I will use all my mental and physical capacity to overcome obstacles in my chosen path and I will succeed.

 

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat."
                                                                                            Theodore Roosevelt
                                                                                                                          Chicago, April 10th, 1899
