|If you can value truth above approval
and friendship, over power, wealth or fame
If you can share your gifts and talents wisely
leaving someone better off than when you came
If you find happiness in simple pleasures
see the rainbow not the falling rain
If you have faith to keep right on believing
in miracles that no one can explain
If you live every day to your potential
and find good in everything you see
Then you'll be not just happy and successful
but the person only you were meant to be

|You cannot change the world,but you can present the world with one improved person, yourself. You can go to work on yourself to make yourself into the kind of person you admire and respect. You can become a role model
and set a standard for others. You can control and discipline yourself to resist acting or speaking in a negative way toward anyone for any reason. You can insist upon always doing things the loving way rather than the hurtful way. By doing these things each day, you can continue on your journey toward becoming an exceptional human being.

|Some people succeed in spite of hardships. Others succeed because of them. The truth is, our problems help to make us what we are. Those who suffer often learn the value of compassion. Those who struggle often learn perseverance. And those who fall down often teach others how to rise again. Our troubles can shape us in ways a carefree existence cannot.

|Why should we be in such desparate haste to succeed and in such desparate enterprises?
If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears. However measured and far away.
