Honor Your Values

My life demonstrates only the highest values.
I am fully responsible for the way I think and speak and act.
I encourage and appreciate myself for teaching with my choices.
I love, trust, respect and honor myself in every way.

If you expect to be valued, you must value yourself.
If you expect to be valued, you must value others.
If you expect to live in a world of values, please live your values.
There is no time off to forsake your values.

Every act of disrespect lingers on.
Every negative word creates a reaction.
Every hurtful thought creates pain.
To heal is to forgive forgetting our values.

What you give, you will receive.
What you do, speaks louder than good intentions.
What you say, demonstrates your thoughts withheld.
Who you are comes through with everything you think and say and do.

Take time to forgive.
Be what is true for you.
Show you values through how you live.
Speak and behave with everyone the way you want your world to be for you.

Our behavior teaches our children.
Our words demonstrate our inner language.
Our thoughts guide our feelings, our words and our behaviors.
What we think and say and do is what we are creating our lives to be.

Ask yourself what you admire in others.
Decide whether you want to live tall or small.
Choose between begin extraordinary or ordinary.
Consider yourself a leader or a follower.

Do you go along to get along?
Do you want to live like others?
Do you want to give your best and forgive the rest?
Do you want to inspire, encourage, teach only Good?

You can envision a truly good healthy and happy life.
You can imagine how good your life can be.
You can speak only words that affirm, inspire and encourage.
You can act with kindness and respect, responsibility and cooperation.

Take time to let go of what is not becoming of you.
Undo what belongs to someone else’s way of behaving.
Forgive what is false, unhealthy and no longer serves.
Choose for what is highest and best for you!

This is your life.
Value what matters to you.
Treat others as you want to be treated.
Demonstrate your values in every way you live.

Loving us all as one, 
Betty Lue

Recommendations for All Relationships 
With mates, partners, friends, children, co-workers, etc.

Keep your agreements faithfully.
(Communicate changes honestly and immediately.)

Give more than you expect to receive. 
Do more than your “fair” share.

Receive everything with open appreciation.
Express your thanks sincerely and take nothing for granted.

Live your own life in integrity and on purpose.
Clarify, communicate and live your mission, your path, your principles and values.  

Be responsible for yourself, your work and live your life impeccably. 
Don’t expect others to pick up after you or take care of you.

Stop using, blame, criticism or guilt to control or manipulate.
Stop making demands, threats or using neediness to get your way.

Communicate effectively and respectfully.
Request a time and place and tone of voice that works for both parties.

Be your best self in all circumstances.
Focus always on teaching by example. (and apologize immediately when you forget or neglect.)

Use your time together wisely.
Focus on meaningful, positive and inspiring conversation and activities.

Spend time, money, energy and resources only on what you value and want to increase.
Waste nothing in your relationship.  No arguing, pettiness, emotional dumping or negativity.

As circumstances change, there is a need to re-commit to what works for all participants.
Families need to meet to look at the specific needs of each individual to be at their best.
Couples need to ensure that the relationship is “serving all parties.
Business partners need to return to their original agreement and consider changing roles as needed.

Life requires that we be in relationship.
With respect for ourselves and each other there is open communication.
With responsibility for the quality of our relationships, there is a willingness to seek what works for all.
With cooperation there is encouragement to listen for ways to serve the needs of everyone.
When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.
