I am somebody, and
I stand for something, and I love who I am and what I have
become. I get paid money for what I do, but I do not work for
money. Rather I work to contribute my energy, my talent,
and my love to those endeavors that express who I am and what
it is I stand for. I work at my place of employment
because working there gives me the opportunity to be this way.
I do not really
work for my employer or my supervisor, and no one works for
me. We are all working to achieve the goals, and to forward
the purposes for which my company exists. My company's
purpose is my purpose—that's why I work here—and my
employer is here to help me be of service to you.
I exercise the
authority delegated to me in order to achieve our aims and I
am responsible for the results. I take pride in what I
do and where I work.
I do my job
honorably, which is to say, I tell the truth and my word is my
I do not make
promises I cannot keep and I do not pretend someone else is
responsible for my mistakes. I treat everyone I know
with dignity and honor, and I respect those qualities when I
see that they have the courage to express that way too.
I never promise to
keep secrets, because I never do anything I need to
hide. Everything I do can stand the light of day.
And still, I can be counted on to be appropriate in what I say
If I sometimes
make mistakes or fall short of my ideals, I take
responsibility for what I've said or done and clean up any
'mess' that I created. I am always willing to learn from
my experiences and so I am forgiving of myself and others.
I am loyal to my
company and those with whom I work by being loyal to truth and
honor above all else.
This is how I am
and this is how I work and this is how I am with you.
