I will be joyful, so that life may give me wings.
I will be courageous, so that there shall be no binding fears.
I will be balanced, so that neither work nor play nor rest nor worship shall lose its proper share.
I will be self-reliant, so that thoughts of fear shall not hold me back.
I will be good-tempered, so that annoyance shall not irritate me.
I will be patient, so that discouragement shall not seem final.
I will be persistent, so that the will may carry me through to completion.
I will be prepared, so that in an emergency, I shall not be confused.
