Be a person who understands and forgives;
Be a person who has a nurturing heart;
Be a person who listens instead of judge's;
Be a person people can count on, and most importantly by your example, are inspired to leave still other people better off.

Start...
with a vision of a community that becomes more nurturing and stable as a result of many following your example;
with a vision of communities where the opportunity for all citizens to grow and prosper is not denied by the actions or non-action of the unwise;
with a positive vision of communities that will provide an educated and confident citizenship that has faith in the well being of of their children and grandchildren, and future generations to come.

Act upon this vision by...
reading stories of virtuous people who you admire, and note that their strengths and values that make them admirable can be made your own;
by ignoring the worldly impression that you as an individual are powerless to effect a positive change in your community or country, and act with faith that participation in the election of politicians who best share your views works to the benefit of all, and with faith that your example will inspire other good citizens to do their part also.
by improving your strengths so that your efforts will bless others and so that everyone following your example can prosper.

NOTE: I develop my own view of right and wrong and now consider myself an Independent, but I know that others can disagree with my idea of what is virtuous, so do what you feel is right based on your own feelings of what is right. It is your choice, I only ask that you be willing to challenge your own opinions by giving weight to opposing view points before you make the final decision when the time is ripe. I consider views expressed on both CNN and FOX for the well being of my self education and feel this world will be a better place if others follow my example.

I wish all a success and hope you enjoyed my sharing these thoughts. Thank you for reading my Page. Please visit my blog (containing these same thoughts) for comments on them www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_

I am just back to SP for about a month, and I'm checking out some of my friends from when I was more active. I came across your page. You asked for impressions, so I will tell you, I'm impressed! I'm happy to see you are at your goal, and hoping to be at mine by the end of 2019. I have a long way to go! Thanks for sharing your life with us. I will check back often!

We only fail when we quit trying!

Accountability is "An attitude of continually asking 'what else can I do to rise above my circumstances and achieve the results I desire.' It is the process of seeing it, owning it, solving it, and doing it. It requires a level of ownership that includes making, keeping, and proactively answering for personal commitments. It is a perspective that embraces both current and future efforts rather than reactive and historical explanations."

LEADERSHIP GOALS: I will improve my self-awareness by studying the results of Dr. Amen's brain health assessment that was emailed to me after taking the free quiz at brainhealthassessment.com/ and determining my goals with the help of the assessment and "The Perfect Day Formula"; managing my inner state, impulses and resources via self-regulation; handling and controlling my emotional tendencies and interactions with others; having compassion for and awareness of other peoples needs and concerns; and using my skills to act in the interest of others via cautious, thoughtful risk taking to help them succeed.

This is a record of my journey to avoid ill advised mental and social errors (I do take healthy risks) in order to live with joy and abundance based on books such as Dr. Amen's book Feel Better Fast and Make it Last, A Firm Foundation by Paul Chappell, 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle, and The Perfect Day Formula by Craig Ballantyne.
