The actions I take on a daily basis are direct expressions of my philosophy of life. I am true to my beliefs and act with my positive goals in mind even in challenging situations. My conduct and speech bring honor to myself because they reflect the values I hold dear.
Regardless of who is around me, I remain true to what I believe and to the goals I have set. I am strong enough to overcome the temptation of compromising my principles to gain favor with others. Within me, I find the courage to stand up for what I believe, even if I am standing alone.
In the midst of personal or professional challenges or at times when it would be easier to give in to a outburst of negative emotion, I keep my cool. I wait until I am calm to respond so my responses are well thought out.
My actions match my beliefs and goals because I devote time to daily self-reflection. Through self-reflection I become aware of my habits.
Self-reflection allows me to identify areas where I have become separated from my values. When I make a mistake, I admit it and make amends wherever I can.
Through love and self-acceptance, I can forgive myself as I guide my actions back toward my principles and goals. As a member of the imperfect human family, I will mess up, but my values are not about being perfect, they are about staying honest, staying positive, and working toward my goals.
Today, I choose to take time to reflect on my behavior. I identify my philosophy of life and evaluate my performance by comparing my actions to my personal values.
- What is my philosophy of life?
- Are my actions accurate expressions of those beliefs?
- How does self-reflection help me stay true to myself?
