To instill within ourselves these qualities essential for professional excellence:

Discipline . . . Being able to follow as well as lead, knowing we must master ourselves before we can master our task.

Competence . . . There being no substitute for total preparations and complete dedication, for business will not tolerate the careless or indifferent.

Confidence . . . Believing in ourselves as well as others, knowing we must master hesitation before we can succeed.

Responsibility . . . Realizing that it cannot be shifted to others, for it belongs to each of us; we must answer for what we do, or fail to do.

Toughness . . . Taking a stand when we must; to try again, and again, even it if means following a more difficult path.

Teamwork . . . Respecting and utilizing the ability of others, realizing that we work toward a common goal, for success depends on the efforts of all.

–          To always be aware that suddenly and unexpectedly we may find ourselves in a role where our performance has devastating consequences.

–          To recognize that the greatest error is not to have tried and failed, but that in trying, we did not give it our best effort.
