LYBLABCs: N is for Noble

As part of my weekly LYBLABCs series — which rolls-out a core value aligned to Oprah’s Live Your Best Life philosophy found in O, the Oprah Magazine — here’s the latest virtue!

Act honorably and nobly. Fulfill your obligations, honor your affairs, and play it on the level.

Put good, honest work into all of your ambitions. Never begrudge the necessary labor to do something the right way: if it’s done right the first time, you won’t have to do it again.

Make your word and keep it. Don’t make promises you can’t keep, and don’t give promises away too easily. A promise is a debt, and a debt is a burden.

Throw yourself behind a noble cause, and your reward will be exaltation!
