7 Promises my Dad just shared
« on: August 15, 2006, 03:53:44 PM »
My Dad just walked in (we work together, rather, i work FOR him!) and handed me this.  He knows im having a rough go of it, with anxiety and depression hitting me REALLY hard.  I just thought I would do him the honor of sharing it with others I love.....

Seven Simple Promises That Will Change Your Life

Monday’s Promise:  Responsibility
I will take complete responsibility for my health, my happiness, my success, and my life, and will not blame others for my problems or predicaments.

Tuesday’s Promise:  Accountability
I will not allow low self-esteem, self-limiting beliefs, or the negativity of others to prevent me from achieving my authentic goals and from becoming the person I am meant to be.

Wednesday’s Promise:  Determination
I will do the things I’m afraid to do, but which I know should be done.  Sometimes this will mean asking for help to do that which I cannot do by myself.

Thursday’s Promise:  Contribution
I will earn the help I need in advance by helping other people now, and repay the help I receive by serving others later. 

Friday’s Promise:  Resilience
I will face rejection and failure with courage, awareness, and perseverance, making these experiences the platform for future acceptance and success.

Saturday’s Promise:  Perspective
I will have faith that, though I might not understand why adversity happens, by my conscious choice I can find strength, compassion, and grace through my trials.

Sunday’s Promise:  Faith
My faith and my gratitude for all that I have been blessed with will shine through in my attitudes and in my actions.
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
