A few guidelines for life I've developed through the years:
When you read, engage both your heart and your mind.
When you attend church, give to others as much as you get from them.
When you succeed in something, give glory to God.
When you receive a gift, say thank you.
When you suffer, be honest with your emotions.
When you become angry, channel that emotion into something positive.
When you are in a difficult relationship, exercise compassion without enabling misconduct.
When you want to act like a prophet, be sure your own house is in order first.
When you discover what you're good at, don't bury that talent.
When you are with young people, give them what they crave -- depth and substance.
When you become old, cultivate the discipline of joy.
