To find value in living – I will
- Anchor my life in honesty, quality, and service to others, particularly those who don’t have power.
- Learn something new every day.
- Remember that everything important in life grows out of relationships: family, faith, generosity, and close friendship.
- Emulate the admirable qualities I see in others: dogged pursuit of excellence, commitment, patience, and selflessness.
- Recognize my strengths and develop my talents as a communicator, a philosopher, a counselor, and a quick study, all growing out of a deep sense of security in who I am and why I am here.
- Continue laughing at myself; after all, I do some pretty silly things.
- Acknowledge humbly that I am a recovering glutton who struggles every day – and often fails – to control his weakness for food; that I can be lazy and disorganized, and that too often I pass up chances to show people how much I care about them.
- Strive constantly to turn these weaknesses into strengths.
- Envision myself becoming a person:
- my family knows to be loving, patient, and sensitive, even though sometimes a bit crazy.
- my clients know to be insightful, caring, and professional, and sometimes surprisingly creative.
- my friends know to be generous, dependable, and fun.
- my Lord knows to be a faithful servant who realizes how much he has to learn.
