1. Take Responsibility for Your Own Actions: When you do things and they turn out wrong, or you make a mistake take responsibility. Pointing the blame at someone else makes you look petty, untrustworthy, and irresponsible. These are not attributes of people of your stature and class.
2. Make Decisions Based on Your Own Knowledge: Gathering information from as many sources as possible, no matter how biased they may be one way or another. From the information gathered, you can then make decisions based on the knowledge you now possess. Thinking for yourself will get you farther than blindly following those who may not have your best interests in mind.
3. Honesty is Always Best, Even When it Damages Your Own Ends: Honesty in the worst situations shows integrity, integrity is a key ingredient in gaining respect from those around you. Respect is a much stronger thing that like and dislike, which are fickle feelings and can change without warning. Respect is something that must actively be broken, it does not change as easily as like or dislike.
4. Loyalty to Yourself First, Family Second, Lovers Third, Friends Fourth and everyone else afterwards: Loyalty belongs with those who are the most likely to be with you for the longest time. This makes it obvious that the first person you should be loyal to is yourself, then your family, you will always be with yourself. Your family will remain as long as you maintain trust and communication. Lovers can be more fickle and may leave for any reason, but the right one will remain for as long as family. Friends and acquaintances may leave at any time and thus little loyalty should be spent on them initially, although they may rise in priority as they earn respect.
5. Do Things You Love because You Love Them, not for Approval: We all have habits that we enjoy. If you’re doing something you love because it brings praise and approval from those around you, then you are doing it for the wrong reason. Do what you love, because you love it. Do not allow the majority of people to tell you it’s wrong, if you enjoy it then it is most certainly right.
6. Hold Yourself Accountable, Expect Accountability from those above you: If you don’t hold yourself accountable for mistakes, misunderstandings, and general aptitude there is a possibility that no one will. So hold yourself accountable, and expect the same accountability from those who are above you in the food chain, either at work, at school, or elsewhere.
