Core Values

 
 
Reply Thu 9 Oct, 2003 09:57 am
Timberland gave me this idea. what are your core values? Can you sum up in a few probably admitted cliches statements the core values you try to live by?

Will you admit as I do that you often times fail to be successful to do so and act out of self interest in spite of your lofty ideals?

Here's me...summed up

"If it harms no one, do as you wilt"
"Say what you mean and mean what you say"
"Being able to knock someone down does not make you tough....being able to get up every time you're knocked down does"
"Give everyone the benefit of the doubt until they **** with you once too often....then write 'em off and NEVER forgive or forget"
"Don't beg"
"Don't bully"

Let's here from you guys......

The right to swing your arm ends at the other person's nose.

An eight ounce glass filled with 4 oz. of water is half full.

Don't mess with reality. Don't hang around with people who do.

Now matter how awful a situation, you can always find something to laugh about it, and something to learn from it.

One cannot reasonably espouse both faith and reason. They are by nature, contradictions.

You may grow older, but you never have to grow old.

Oh, I've got a bunch of 'em. And I'll remember them all sooner or later. But after dealing with some 50 yr. old teenagers today, one comes to mind immediately:

Stop whining. If you don't like something, change it, suck it up, or leave.

If you can't laugh at yourself, make fun of other people.

If you don't like my driving stay the hell off the sidewalk.

I'll drink to that.

sugar "if you can't laugh at yourself, make fun of other people"? thats a bad idea, you make fun of the wrong person and you just might not get back up.

treat others the way you would like to be treated

you have 2 ears 1 mouth use them in proportion

love a lil more then you think you can

Live simply so that others may simply live
recycle reuse and reduce
stop and smell the roses
do to others as you'd have them do to you


I like most of BPB's and Phoenix's lists

Work like you don't need the money
love like you've never been hurt
dance like no one is watching
f*** like you are being filmed
forgive, but never forget

Re: Core Values
"Say what you mean and mean what you say"

BPB's #2..."Give everyone the benefit of the doubt until they **** with you once too often....then write 'em off and NEVER forgive or forget"

These by BPB have been exceedingly important to me, as well.

Also, if revenge must be exacted--it is a dish best served cold.

Do unto others---and then see BPB's #2.

Never promise anything--because you can't control variables.

No honest job is beneath a person--no person is beneath another in value.

Do not be decieved that money or stature or intelligence makes you superior to another person. These things are transitory.

Appreciate simple things--a breeze, a car that comes to life when the ignition is turned--food in the refrigerator--a smile--the ability to get out of bed in the morning--clear nasal passages Laughing --your children's laughter

I'm only here once, now and in this moment,
enjoying the work of many others.

My life is my one, true creation.

Live simply and laugh to aim for happiness.

Wanting peace, look for truth & justice.

Loving well is the best gift to give or receive.

In the end, it is the journey I choose,
Not the one that chooses me.

The best revenge is living well.

People may forget what you say, they may forget what you do, but they will never forget how you make them feel.

Be careful about what you put in writing.

Love is rare, no matter where you find it. Appreciate it, even if you can't return it.

Just because someone cannot express their love does not mean they don't love you.

Never allow yourself to be pressured into making an important decision.

Think for yourself. God gave each of us our own brain for a reason.

choose your words wisely, with continual use some words can lose meaning.

Never think of yourself as a victim
No matter what you do, good or bad, accept the consequences or rewards as your own
Be true to your word

Don't worry safecraker. I always get back up. The key really is the wise words my father once said...take the first shot and make it a good one.
