Preaching Values to Myself

I have quite a few weaknesses and habits in my life that are constantly erosive to my pursuit of character. I know I’m not going to outgrow these characteristics so I keep preaching to myself:

Assume that you are ultimately powerless to manage your life and that you must surrender to the God of the Universe

Live as transparently as possible—resist image building

Derive self-value from the Creator and not from people or the blog you author

Content yourself with littleness and powerlessness

Resist a competitive spirit; allow no inner resentments; rejoice in the success of others.

Fred,
I came across your blog recently. I really like the values that you listed. You say a lot in these few words.
