3. Honesty asks that I speak the truth with compassion and self-responsibility.
4. I am free to choose my inner attitude regarding any given life circumstance; I can always choose again.
5. Once I choose again, I must do the inner work necessary to make that choice a reality.
6. I can only choose beliefs and attitudes for myself; I cannot choose them for another.
7. When I do not allow others to make their own choices or to take responsibility for themselves, I impose my will; by imposing my will, I disempower others, depriving them of the freedom of choice and the opportunity to discover their own uniqueness and their own inner strength.
8. I am responsible for the meaning and purpose I bring to my life and for choosing to learn and serve.
