Words of Wisdom For a Happy Successful Life.
Integrity – Your integrity is really the only thing you have that is worth anything. Having integrity means other people believe you and trust you. In order to have integrity, you should be honest and truthful in everything you do, do what you say you’ll do, don’t make promises you can’t keep.
Do Your Best – Always to your very best, no matter what you are doing, whether it’s homework, or making something, or chores around the house, or just playing tiddly winks. Don’t do it for other people, do it for yourself. If you always do your best, you can always be proud of what you do.
Respect – If you respect others, they will respect you. Show respect for everybody, especially your parents, your teachers, your sisters, and your schoolmates.
Think Before You Speak – Don’t talk back to people. Don’t say hurtful things. Don’t talk down to people. Don’t interrupt. You can’t take back words that come out of your mouth. Sometimes it’s better to keep quiet.
Don’t Make Excuses – You are responsible for your own behavior. If you make a mistake, admit to it, fix it as best you can, try not to do it again, and move on. Don’t try to blame other people or other things.
Don’t be Arrogant – Arrogance is where you think you’re better or smarter than everybody else. It’s best to be humble. If you are a decent human being and do all this other stuff, you don’t have to tell anybody else about it, it will be self evident.
Be Kind – If you can get through your life without hurting anybody else, you will be a successful person. Be especially kind to old people and small furry things. They need all the help they can get.
