One of my principles is respecting elders because I think old people deserve the respect, care, and sympathy from young generations.
I agree, respecting ones elders is an important principle. They deserve respect because they have more experience and usually know better than us.
The main principle that I live by is that only through hard work can we accomplish our goals. I don't believe in taking shortcuts because there is a reason for everything we do, and to omit some of that work to skip on ahead can come back to haunt one later in life.
I agree with this. There is no shortcuts in life and everyone has to work hard to accomplish their goals.
My principle is to treat others the way you want to be treated. I feel that it is important to treat others with respect if you want respect because if you treat others like there were nothing then they will treat you like you are nothing. The way you treat others is a reflection of yourself.
I agree! Even though it is always important to respect yourself, respecting others is just as important. The sad thing is, not everyone think the same way... Some people may not care about respecting others, or sometimes it's just plain hard.
The most important principle I live by is principle of cherishing everything you have everyday and every moment of your life. Not take the things you have for granted and appreciating those who love you. You never know when all of that is going to disappear because it can in the blink of an eye. Don't say or do things that will hurt those around you today because you might not have the chance to apologize for it tomorrow.
i agree! We shouldn't take things for granted because we never know what can happen the next day!
A principle that I find myself living by is one that my parents taught me when I was younger. They always told me to treat others the way you want to be treated and I find this helpful almost everyday. You never know what a person is going through at home or with friends and family and that's why I find it important to be nice and understanding of others. You can try and put yourself in their shoes but you just never know how they are doing and asking someone how they are doing or just helping them out can really make a difference in someone's life
A principle that I strictly follow is to not let other's opinions affect or influence me. It's good to learn from constructive criticism, but if you constantly abide to the words of others, you won't be happy in the end because you didn't accomplish what YOU wanted but what someone else wanted instead.
I agree with this. I feel that if you constantly follow what others tell you, you will lose a sense of independence, in that you won't think for yourself.
I find what you said very true: especially that letting others manipulate you will keep you from your goals.
One of my principles is to work hard through life while having fun. Yes, I believe that a person needs to work earnestly, but he must also have some enjoyment in life.
Haha I really like this just because it's all about being happy and having fun in the long run.
I have many principles, but one of the most important would have to be the principle of self respect. Although a sad thought, it is true that most people do not live to please others and only live to please themselves and/or a specific group of others. Doing so may cause them to overstep other people's personal boundaries, and when that occurs, it is that person's choice whether or not to stand up for him/herself. Personally, I know that I have been able to get pretty far in my life because I have enough self respect to stand up for myself when the time is right. Having a sense of dignity not only changes how people view others, but also defines who people are in other aspects. When one respects him/herself, he/she is capable of achieving great things i.e. if a teenager truly understands the worth of human life, his or hers in particular, he/she should want to and be able to create a better future for him/herself by just doing well in school. Self respect is key in everything, and when people threaten to take that away, choosing to defend it or to allow it to be taken, life changes... For better or worse? Well that's the question that is answered by that choice.
*REVISION: "...and when people threaten to take that away, choosing to defend it or allowing it to be taken changes the course of one's life..."
I agree, many neglect the importance of self respect and that is why it is such a valuable principle.
There are many principles that I try to follow everyday...to protect everything I believe in, no matter what others think about it, to value what is special and important to me, to live life with no regrets, to learn from all mistakes, to view life as a journey, and to appreciate what I have.
Being yourself is a principle that I can't live without. Not only does being yourself make you shine out from the rest, but it can also reveal who really loves and respects you for who you are.
I think it is important not to jump to conclusions. It may be a misunderstanding and hearing it out is important. If not, there may be arguments that could be otherwise easily avoided.
The most important principle I live by is to try my best at whatever difficulties I may face in my lifetime. Even if I fail in something where I have tried my hardest, I would not feel as miserable because I knew I persisted and gave it my all.
I totally agree with you. In my opinion, trying your best in everything you do gives one so much pride in the fact that you gave it your all that it doesn't even matter as much how successful you turn out to be.
See things in different perspectives. Like you drinking water, only you will find out its too hot or cold.
if someone else drinks the same water at the same time as you, he/she will know if the water is hot or cold. but, yes. having different perspectives will give you many options, which is always beneficial
*My main principles are
to be the pilot of my own life
to always try hard.
to never give up when i fail.
to appreciate everything.
to learn. and avoid bad traits like naiveness and ignorance
to try and stay happy as much as possible
these are my main principles because i believe that these principles will not only affect my life in a good way, but also others' around me.
One important principle that I believe in is to be you. If you are being yourself, you are more likely to go further in life than if you try to be someone else. Should you be secure and have faith in yourself, you can concentrate on what is important to you. If you try to be someone else you’ll end up wasting a lot of time and energy that you could have spent improving yourself or enjoying what you have. You will be happier and fell more confident if you be yourself. As humans, we are all unique as no two people share the same personality, ideology, etc. Therefore, it isn’t realistic to be another person in that you neither know the person completely nor have similar skills.
One of my principles that I try to live by in my life is to learn from all my mistakes. By learning from these mistakes, I can avoid making the same mistakes over and repeating history in my life. Additionally, if I live by this value, I am able to grow to be a wiser person when I'm older.
I think my top principle would have to be respect your elders. It would be that because it's something that us teenagers and younger kids don't really do anymore. We brush off the respect towards elders like it's nothing, and in my family, It's a big thing to respect our elders.
one principle i believe is what come around goes around. it mean if you be good/bad then good/bad things will happen to you. i find this very true because i believe the wicked do get punish for their wrongs in someway and the righteous do get rewarded for their deeds. this principle i believe in is also know as karma!
they have a entire show based on this principle
Never burden others, never trouble friends, never lie to be selfish, always attempt to make amends.
Always help those around you, always make them smile... Then next time when you're in pain, you have loved one to make you feel worthwhile.
I feel this quote helps sum up a very important principle in my life. Always treat others how you wish to be treated. You will receive the same level of respect that you give.
One of my principles is to believe in the best in people. No one is perfect, but I believe everyone has something genuinely good about them. Although people may not always prove themselves trustworthy, they can have other good points about them. Another standard I live by is to be classy, and not trashy. Like to have some self respect and cherish who you are.
to live life with no regrets & to learn from all your mistakes.
One of my principles is to find happiness in daily life. As bad as things may seem there is always somone who has it worst i see myself as very fortunate and thankful only because i appreciate what life has to offer and how much i have been given.
Chloe I completely agree with what you just said, it's really nice to see someone just try to be happy. It's really uplifting
