Five keys to virtue

Five Keys to VIRTUE:

  • Do the Right Thing: Develop a life characterized by right choices.

  • Set the Precedent: Be a positive model. Be a good example. You are a leader because everyone has a sphere of influence.

  • Be Consistent: What you think, what you choose, and what you do is who you become.

  • Choose Associations Wisely: The people around you will affect the way you see, think, and live.

  • Urge Others to Do Right: Virtue doesn’t have to be “preachy.” Turn on a light, and the room is filled.
