Role Model Oath
Gary Barnes


Hey, I have some great news for you:  Anyone can be a role model.  You don't have to be famous to be a role model.  You don't have to be a superstar, an athlete, an actor, professional or a super-talented individual.  All that it takes to be a role model is a sincere desire to do the right thing.  A sincere love for yourself and for other people wouldn't hurt either.

What are the benefits of being a role model?  Well, you get a lot of respect from family and people, but most importantly, by being a role model you put yourself in a position to make an impact.  You just never know who you might inspire to greatness!  Will you inspire the next Nobel prize winner, will you inspire the next great athlete, will you inspire the next great leader?  You just never know.  If you decide to take this oath, do it because you know it's the right thing to do.  Join me and take the oath that will forever change your life.

Here's The Official Role Model Oath:

I promise to always be honest, to always speak the truth.  I promise to respect all people and to treat others how I would like to be treated.  I will begin by treating myself with respect and with love.  And by that I mean that I will only do those things that build me up, I will do things that make me a better person, I will do things that are good for me.  I will avoid negative thoughts and I will avoid putting myself down.

I believe in myself.  I know I can do anything I set my mind  on.  I believe in my abilities. I will not believe people who  put me down.  I will not allow myself to think thoughts that  bring me down; I will focus on positive thoughts, thoughts that will make me strong.  I will learn more about how to  be a positive person.  I will read positive books.  My goal  is to be the greatest person that I can be, and no one and  nothing will stand in the way of this.  From now on, I will  live my life with this goal in mind.  There is no stopping  me!  I will make better decisions, I will treat myself better  and I will be a nicer person to all.

I'm a brand new person.  I promise to learn more about relationships, and I will be wiser in the area of relationships.  I deserve to be treated with respect and I deserve a great relationship, where I am truly loved.  I promise to not settle  for less and I will not tolerate less than the best.  Someday I will be a great marriage partner.  If I'm single, I will be a  happy single person.  As a single person I will learn all I can  about what makes a positive relationship and I will prepare myself for that special love relationship.  I will not let myself  be used or abused in a relationship.  I will never rely on another person for my happiness. I rely on myself and on God for my happiness.  This inner happiness that I have found I will someday share with a person who has also found this happiness and now  wants to share it with me.

I accept myself as I am, and I'm much happier with who I am because I have decided to live a positive life. I will continue  to do good because I know that I have the power to make a difference in other people's lives.  I believe one of the basic  reasons we are all here is to help one another.  I will pray when  I need strength, and I will seek God for any help that I might  need.  I understand that I am not perfect, but I accept my faults  and move forward with a new vision and a new direction.  My faults will fade away with time because I will constantly be  improving myself.  The day will arrive when I will be the  masterpiece that God intended for me to be.  And on that day I will know the big purpose for my being here.

I ________________ Promise on this day of _______________ to take control of my life and to live a positive life from this day on.
