I will work this day with all my strength,
content in the knowledge that life does not consist of wallowing in the past or peering anxiously at the future.
It is appalling to contemplate the great number of painful steps
by which one arrives at a truth so old, so obvious, and so frequently expressed.
Whatever it offers, little or much,
my life is now.

Whatever Life Offers, my Day is NOW…. Or shall I say, let’s make a good use of our NOW, so we can show “Life” what we can offer! Just strive to be better everyday, always better than yesterday. Let’s create our NOW more deliberately.
I will turn away from any temptation today
that might cause me to break my word or my self-respect.
I am positive that the only thing I possess more valuable than my life
is my honor.

Integrity from the root word “Integer” means whole, means 100%…
Our “name,” as my father told me, is our only wealth. And what does that mean? I think we have earned the “reputation” my parents built by doing the right things… rooting on integrity! It will continue that way, Dad!
I will never hide my talents.
If I am silent, I am forgotten, if I do not advance, I will fall back.
If I walk away from any challenge today, my self-esteem will be forever scarred,
and if I cease to grow, even a little, I will become smaller.
I reject the stationary position
because it is always the beginning of the end.

I will live as all good actors do when they are on stage –
only in the moment.
I cannot perform at my best today by regretting my previous act’s mistakes
or worrying about the scene to come.
