Now the title of the post must be looking very philosophical !! Let me put on a disclaimer first -
The term "Moral Fibre" is picked up from a Hollywood movie. I am in no way as creative so as to coin this term.
Before I proceed to explain what Moral Fibre is al about , allow me to explain the rationale behind choosing this term.
I can associate with this term is the primary reason. Now you might be thinking - "Attitude , haan !!" . To that I say , the attitude is mine.
Another reason why I picked up this term is bcause I have so many real life examples - current and forgone , to justify Moral Fibre. Now I am sure all of you have MF ingrained in your personalities. Here is what I think about it.
You have a wish. You think that somehow it should come true , by hook or by crook. Now here is where Moral Fibre(MF from here on) comes into play. My MF says , if its by crook and you can do without that wish , Just Chuck it (Nike would kill me fo this!!). If you think you can live happily sans that wish coming true , Just Chuck It. If you think you have much better wishes to make come true , Just Chuck It.
MF has nothing to do with Morality and Ethics ( urrrghhh , I hate to use this word). Its what your instinct says , the instinct that has a halo on its head. Its that simple. And we have volumes of stuff written on MF.
MF advocates "Believe in Yourself" (sounds like a tagline , it isn't ). Now you can be right or wrong. But what matters at the finish line is that you stuck to your beliefs. You did not regret. And you saw what lies ahead.
People who have problems with authority (someone like me , for example) , MF stands a good justifier !! I don't mean to say it stands as an excuse to stand up against anyone. However , MF has a way of providing a backdoor outlook to the situation at hand. Thus , you can deal with any and I mean any kind of scenario that comes across you.
MF is not flexible. It is as rigid as enamel. But somehow (and I cant figure out how) , it enables a person to justify For and Against. It provides a perfect balance between doing right and doing wrong (Now thats what I call Optimality !!).
To quote someone - "Moral Fibre does not mean being a BoyScout , its all about finding the one thing you actually care about and working towards achieving it". Deviations will lure you. Thats why they are called Deviations. Try to fool these deviations , use your Moral Fibre and achieve what you want , and not something that others want you to achieve.
