“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both” (Dwight D. Eisenhower). We must learn to stand alone, while relying on our developed and ingrained principles to maintain our integrity. Principles are rudimentary personal truths that help guide our beliefs, behaviors, and choices, in turn, breaking, hindering or strengthening our self-esteem and self-reliance. Success comes from within, not from without. Let’s develop and maintain an upright character now and always, therefore generating electrically charged cyclical reverberating vibrant energy baked into our core.
