Work hard. Be enthusiastic. Do your best. Have confidence. Be cheerful. Be loyal. Be brave. Be courteous. Be thrifty. Be kind. Be trustworthy. Be reverent. Do a good deed every day. Floss. Count your blessings. Think good thoughts. Think before you speak. Don't be mean. Don't be rude. Don't cut in line. Don't call people names. Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't steal. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Be happy for the success of others, even if they don't deserve it. Stop making excuses. Stop acting like a victim. Take responsibility. Say these words out loud: "If it's to be it's up to me." Say it again ... and again!
Eat right - even broccoli, spinach and cauliflower. Don't eat so much. Don't eat so fast. Exercise more. Drink more water. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush the toilet. If at first you don't succeed - try, try again. Don't ever quit. Don't ever give up. Take a stand for what you believe in. Create new possibilities for others. Contribute to others. Listen generously. Look for the good in everyone, including yourself. Don't be selfish. Don't be a wimp. Be tough. Be persistent. Be resilient. Be flexible. Be resourceful. Be smart. Be clever.

Have courage. If somebody needs your help - help! Be generous. Be giving. Don't be afraid to express your feelings. Be sincere. Be intimate. Be authentic. Don't ever give up your dreams. Set goals. Write them down. Stop waiting for the right time. Quit stalling. The time is now. Go for it - get on with it. Do it yourself. It's nobody else's job. Be all you can be. Participate in your life 100%. Always seek to play a more important, more challenging game. What really counts is how you play the game, whether you win or lose. Play to win. Play fair. Don't cheat. Be good to all living things. Tell the truth. Be dependable. Keep your promises. Pay your debts. Learn from your mistakes. Celebrate and have pride in your victories. Be a good sport - when you win, don't gloat. When you lose, study.
Write more letters. Send more flowers. Appreciate all the things you have. Know that on a scale of 1 to 10, you're a 10. Now act like one. Remember that you're just as good as anybody else, and not one bit better than anyone else. Don't take yourself so seriously. Lighten up. Don't frown so much. Things aren't that bad. Be friendlier. Laugh more. Smile more. Pat people on the back. Don't worry so much. Be happy. Giggle. Learn to dance. Hold hands. Stick together. Practice, practice, practice. Don't sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff.
Love yourself and others ... more. Mean it! Care. Have mercy, charity, patience and forbearance. Be gentle. Be peaceful. Seek balance. Seek wisdom and understanding. Learn to forgive, and forget. Pray for guidance. Ask and you will receive. Have faith. Believe.
Live life "in excellence, like it really matters." Be the genie of your own life. Don't be afraid to dream. Take action to have other's dreams come true. Do for others what you would want them to do for you. You are what you do. Be unforgettable. Make a difference. JUST DO IT! Together.
