- Forgive and move on: I believe in the liberating power of forgiveness. By choosing not to hold onto grudges or contempt, I am free to move forward positively.
- Take no revenge: I understand that revenge only perpetuates a cycle of negativity. Instead, you choose to break that cycle by not seeking revenge, even when wronged.

- Honor agreements: Integrity and trustworthiness are vital to me. I take commitments seriously and strive to fulfill them.
- Have compassion before anger: I opt for understanding and empathy over anger, even in challenging situations.
- Have understanding before frustration: Rather than allowing frustration to overcome me, I seek understanding, which promotes patience and resilience.
- Have love before hate: Love is the guiding force in my life. I believe in choosing love over hate, spreading positivity and unity.
- Admit when I am wrong: I understand the value of humility and the importance of owning up to mistakes as part of personal growth.
- All people are equal: I firmly believe in equality, recognizing every individual’s inherent worth and dignity.
