COMMITMENT is a Promise or a Pledge to do or give something. It is engaging yourself to follow through, binding yourself to a course of action and crossing the finish line. PERSEVERANCE is the perpetual belief that “If I try I will succeed – that faced with a challenge I will not give up. SELF-CONTROL is the realization that you are responsible for everything you do. How you act or react to the events happening in your life is the only outcome you can consciously determine. INTEGRITY does not examine the result – only the effort made. It is the level of honesty and the quality of effort you give to the execution of whatever you strive to do. LOVE is openness and respect for yourself, others and life itself. It is sharing a positive attitude, being non-judgmental, listening and opening your heart, lending a helping hand, and always setting the best example possible.
