– You clearly understand that failure is an event, not a person; that yesterday ended last night, and today is your brand-new day.

– You have made friends with your past, are focused on the present, and optimistic about your future.

– You know that success (a win) does not make you, and failure (a loss) does not break you.

– You are filled with faith, hope, and love; and live without anger, greed, guilt, envy, or thoughts of revenge.

– You are mature enough to delay gratification and shift your focus from your rights to your responsibilities.

– You know that failure to stand for what is morally right is the prelude to being the victim of what is criminally wrong.

– You are secure in who you are.

– You have made friends of adversaries, and have gained the love and respect of those who know you best.

– You understand that others can give you pleasure, but genuine happiness comes when you do things for others.

– You are pleasant to the grumpy, courteous to the rude, and generous to the needy.

– You love the unlovable, give hope to the hopeless, friendship to the friendless, and encouragement to the discouraged.

– You can look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion, and up with gratitude.

– You know that “he who would be greatest among you must become the servant of all.”

– You recognise, confess, develop, and use your God-given physical, mental, and spiritual abilities to the glory of God and for the benefit of mankind.

– You stand in front of the Creator of the universe, and He says to you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

See you at the top.
