The following Core Values are ordered in priority sequence. Each value serves as a foundation to the one after, each complementing the one before.
01. Be Grateful
I choose to witness the wondrous, magnificence of life. I am grateful for all of life’s blessings – those I earned and those I did not.
Do I measure the Gap versus the >Gain1? Am I dwelling on information that doesn’t matter? Do I neglect the bigger picture? Do I understand that life is short and precious, and death looms around the corner?
02. Take Responsibility
I choose to take extreme ownership2 of my life, my circumstances, and those in my care. I take responsibility for the weather.
Do I blame the world if life isn’t working out like I’d planned? Do I see myself as a victim? Do I allow other people and things to negatively influence my thoughts and emotions? Most importantly, do I exercise control over my thoughts?
05. Be Stronger
I choose to strive to be stronger physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally (PSME4). I choose to create feelings, thoughts, and decisions that make me stronger everyday.
Do I honour thoughts and feelings that weaken me? Are my beliefs on a particular matter making me weaker? Do I neglect my PSME4 health?
06. Be Better
I choose to think and act in ways determined to make me better. I strive for excellence in my profession, career, and personal life.
Do I neglect necessary action to improve in my field ? Do I fall short of the mark? Did I fail to be better than yesterday? Will I fail to be better tomorrow?
