Stick to Your Principles

What basic principles do you believe in? Have you tested them? Are they solid or fleeting? Do they come from your soul? Do they inspire you to take risks? Do they inspire you to live your best life? When faced with opposition and life's challenges, do your principles and values strengthen or weaken you? Are you willing to die for them?

Last night I watched "Gladiator" (2000). Hadn't seen it for almost 10 years. Forgot how good it is. Besides the gore and blood, its messages inspire and uplift:

  • Courage under fire. 
  • Life challenges test your resolve, inner strength, principles and values. 
  • Staying true to your heart and soul strengthens your courage; keeps you balanced and focused. 
  • Hard work and inner strength help you achieve your Soul Purpose. 
  • If your principles and values encourage, empower, and inspire you and others around you - they are good and pure.
  • One individual soul can change the world in a positive way.
  • You never know if your one act of courage will empower others unless you use it.
  • Take risks. It's what life is all about. It's why you're here. Risking is living.

Your principles and values come from your soul. You were born with them. Experiences strengthen them. Your principles and values are the fuel in your engine. The simpler the principle, the stronger it is. The stronger your courage. Strong principles help you navigate life's challenges without fear. Strong principles and values enable you to understand others' points of view without judging or feeling judged.

Clearly identify your principles and values. Keep them simple. Use your heart and soul to identify them, not your mind. If they're pure and good principles, they boldly withstand outside interference; help you rise above the chaos and confusion - inner and external confusion.

The Spiritual Movement comprised of authors, speakers, sages, preachers and priests often contradicts itself. Not every leader's message is true for you. Look inside in your soul. Listen to your heart. Define your unique principles and values. Keep them simple. Keep them pure. Keep them strong. They are your armor and weapon as you walk through life's Fire Swamps.

Some of my principles and values are:
  • Do no harm.
  • Respect others' beliefs.
  • Everyone is unique. Respect their experiences, soul energy, purpose and uniqueness.
  • Stay true to myself. Stay true to others.
  • Be kind, patient and understanding.
  • Walk my Talk. If I don't walk my beliefs, I cannot profess them.
  • Encourage others.
  • Don't sweat the small stuff. 80% of life is small stuff.

What are yours?
