I affirm that…
I choose to work with a focused mind and a joyful heart.
I inspire myself to renewed effort every day.
I look upon ourselves as partners in all of this, and that each of us contributes and does what he can do best. And so I see not a top rung and a bottom rung – I see all this horizontally – and I see this as part of a matrix. And I see every human being as having a purpose, a destiny, if you like – the destiny that exists in each of us – and find ways and means to provide such opportunities for everyone.
