A Creed For Self-Discipline

Will-power
Recognizing that the Power of Will is the Supreme Court over all other departments of my mind, I will exercise it daily, when I need the urge to action for any purpose, and I will form habits designed to bring the power of my will into action at least once daily.

Emotions
Realizing that my emotions are both positive and negative I will form daily habits. which will encourage the development of the positive emotions, and aid me in converting the negative emotions into some form of useful action.

Reason
Recognizing that both my positive emotions and negative emotions may be dangerous, if they are not controlled and guided to desirable ends, I will submit all my desires, aims and purposes to my faculty of reason, and I will be guided by it in giving expression to these.

Imagination
Recognizing the need for sound plans and ideas for the attainment of my desires, I will develop my imagination by calling upon it daily for help in the formation of my plans.

Conscience
Recognizing that my emotions often err in their over enthusiasm, and my faculty of reason often is without the warmth of feeling that is necessary to enable me to combine justice with mercy in my judgements, I will encourage my conscience to guide me as to what is right and what is wrong, but I will never set aside the verdict it renders, no matter what maybe the cost of carrying them out.

Memory
Recognizing the value of an alert memory, I will encourage mine to become alert by taking care to impress it clearly with all thoughts I wish to recall, and by associating those thoughts with related subjects which I may call to mind frequently.

Subconscious Mind
Recognizing the influence of my subconscious mind over my power of will, I shall take care to submit to it a clear and definite picture of my Major Purpose in life and all minor purposes leading to my major purpose, and I shall keep this picture constantly before my subconscious mind by repeating it daily.
