My mission is to act as an instrument of positive change in my family, my work and my community. I will utilize all of the talents that God has given me and will participate in all aspects of my life with energy, purpose and gratitude. I will utilize my talents in strategy and administration to ensure that my home is loving and calm, my workplace is productive and positive and my community is responsive and growing. Through this focus I will give more than I take and will provide a positive role model for my children.
I am guided by a spiritual belief that everyone has a purpose on this earth and that we are all called to serve in some capacity. I also believe in the power of gratitude both as prayer and as a motivation to serve. I will not be guided by the promise of money or fame in making my life choices.
I will love and care for my children. I will teach them to respect themselves and other people. I will never lose sight of the unique individuals that they are and will support them in the paths that they choice for themselves. I will give them my time and attention and as such will ensure that they always know that they are loved.
I will approach my job with energy and passion. I will find a position that allows me to utilize all of my talents. I will help facilitate organizational goals and will be a positive influence on my co-workers. I will never cheat myself or my employer by working solely for a paycheck. Should I ever find myself in that position I will find other employment.
I will participate in my community. I will participate in volunteer activities for my school, church and community to help ensure that my community prospers. I will be a willing volunteer and won’t hesitate to lend a helping hand when and where it is needed either locally or globally.
I will not compromise my principles and/or dreams based upon the opinion or disapproval of others. I will be true to myself and my purpose, in doing so I will be a better Father, Friend, Leader and employee.
I will gain academic knowledge through completion of continuous training. I will gain spiritual knowledge through the reading of cultural religious materials adult and a study of other religions. I will gain physical strength through continuation of physical training. I will gain wisdom by living my life in congruence with my life’s purpose. I will gain personnel strength through my faith.
Self-Esteem and Security
I measure my self-esteem by my ability to look at myself in a mirror and genuinely smile.
I derive my self-esteem through my ability to set goals and meet them. I have learned to set goals that I have personally have control over. I will keep and review a file containing previous successes that will serve as a reassurance and evidence – that I am a successful person.
I draw my strength from God. Specifically, I draw my strength from people and places where I see or feel a divine presence. I transform weaknesses into strengths by developing an action plan that divides big goals into very small steps. I find that if I take one small step every day pretty soon I am well on my way.
