Journal Journal: The new mandate

I have found it helpful to develop my own simple philosophy of life. I call this philosophy The New Mandate. It is very short and sweet so read carefully in case you miss it:

I shall attempt to direct my efforts toward the betterment of those around me and to the benefit of humanity

I shall not disadvantage or otherwise cause harm to another

I shall take extraordinary steps to help those who are in need

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
