01 Self Value

I value myself: I accept that I am precious and worthy of existence. Developing self-acceptance and self-compassion is the first step to change. It is tempting to put others before ourselves, but this ends up causing resentment when we deny ourselves the possibility of lasting happiness.   #001 SMALL BUT MIGHTY Some of us are...

02 Acceptance

I accept Reality: I do not grumble, blame others, or justify myself. Staying pragmatic and grounded in the real world helps us live happier lives. If we are born mice, we don't compare ourselves with tigers, eagles, and whales. Instead, we use the advantages of being a mouse to succeed. It is tempting to want...

03 Resilient

I trust in Reality: I know the world is good, meaningful, beautiful, and true. Unexpected bad things happen to us, and we may lose something dear. Unanticipated good things can also occur, and we may gain something precious. What is a bad situation can become a good one, and vice-versa. When we trust in the...

04 Self-Reliant

I am personally responsible: I may be small but mighty. Every decision begins with us; every consequence ends with us. When a problem seems too complicated, we improvise a workable solution. When we are wrong, we come clean and apologize. When we make mistakes, we learn to avoid making the same mistakes again. We take...

05 Sustainable

I invest in myself: I invest in and take care of myself. We pay attention to how we live our lives and where we neglect ourselves. Ensuring good nutrition, doing regular health check-ups, quitting bad habits, getting appropriate insurance coverage, mastering a wide range of employable skills, automating mundane chores, etc., lets us continue to...

06 Purposeful

I know what I want: I live with purpose and discipline. We can progress rapidly when we know what we want and live a simple, purpose-driven life organized around our goals. Aware of the opportunity cost of doing something good versus better, we cut waste by doing only what is necessary. We use our spare...

07 Trustworthy

I fulfill my responsibilities: I give to myself what belongs to me and to others what belongs to them. We do what we must do. We deliver what we promised. We pay the cost of following rules and moral values to set an example for others. No matter how talented an actor is, he is...

08 Supportive

I am valuable to others: I help improve the lives of others. Rather than only considering our situation, we think about how to help others live better lives whenever we interact with them. We take a bigger perspective to increase our value and relevance with those we choose to stay in touch. Eventually, people see...

09 Relevant

I listen before I speak: I treat others as part of myself. We listen. We seek to understand others before making ourselves understood. We can explain ourselves and convince others to support us. People ask to hear what we say because it makes sense and addresses their concerns/needs. Our opinions are valued to the extent...

10 Synergistic

I am a team player: I improvise solutions together with others. As we do with ourselves, we pay attention to the concerns, strengths, and weaknesses of people in our team. We find ways to contribute where we can most help while deferring to others more competent than us. We have to be willing to be...

11 Strategic

I think long-term: I plan for at least 50 years. We look at the big picture and the long-term implications, aiming for self-reliant and self-sustainable solutions rather than dependency and one-off easy fixes. Even if we do not get a chance to impact others significantly, we can at least care for ourselves and our families,...
