Honor Yourself: Live with Integrity – Honor your word. Every time you make a promise, you put your honor and integrity on the line. Keeping that promise should be as important to you as it is to the recipient.

Honor Your Values — But Not Too Much – It’s healthy to honor your values in a balanced way because it leads to alignment and fulfillment. However, if you over-attach to a value and find yourself getting caught up in distressing thoughts, negative emotions, or physical sensations like tension, take a few moments to breathe and balance your mind and emotions to access a more objective perspective and solution to the problem.

“It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.”

Hermann Hesse

“The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.”


“A man of honor should never forget what he is because he sees what others are.”

Baltasar Gracian
