LYBLABCs: P is for Pride

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!

Pride of place!

Pride grows its roots in the soil of your soul, prospers when it has something strong to hold onto. It fosters confidence, honesty, and faith, and it’s one of the true cornerstones of a great bearing.

Pride must earn its own way. It doesn’t seek pity or charity. You won’t win any battles worth winning by throwing up your hands and surrendering, or begging for mercy.

Take pride in everything you do, whether it’s being the ceo of your own company or washing your own clothes! Take pride in your word, actions, and deeds, and your surroundings – global, national, local, and personal.

Keep your pride in check! Grown too aggressively, it turns into a big ego!
