Seven Lessons to Teach Your Children As They Enter the Workforce

I.   Don’t sell yourself short. Your value is measured by your values, not by your rank or status;

your worth is determined by your worthiness, not your salary or bonus.

II.  Be honest and never cheat; your most precious asset is your integrity.

III. Treat people with respect whether they deserve it or not.

IV.  Do more than you have to and less than you are allowed to.

V.    Care about everyone who may be affected by your decisions.

VI.  Don’t kid yourself – rationalizations simply numb your conscience they don’t change what’s right.

VII. Perform every task, big or small, so that all you work with will  eagerly recommend you when you need it.
