The Hero Code @ Heroic / Optimize (Brian Johnson)Admiral McRaven tells us that it is a moral code and walks us through ten of the core virtues that make up the code. Each virtue has it’s own commitment.
- I will always strive to be COURAGEOUS;
to take one step forward as I confront my fears.
- I will work to be HUMBLE;
to recognize the limits of my intellect, my understanding, and my power.
- I will learn to SACRIFICE
by giving a little of my time, my talent, and my treasure to those in need.
- I will be a person of INTEGRITY;
every decision I make and every action I take will be moral, legal, and ethical.
- I will be kind and COMPASSIONATE
to at least one person every single day and expect nothing in return.
- I will never give up on matters that are important
to me, my family, my country, or my faith. I will PERSEVERE.
- Whatever job I am given, whatever DUTY I am bound by,
I will do it to the best of my ability.
- I will use my unique talents to inspire others and give them HOPE
that tomorrow will be a better day.
- I will use HUMOR
to comfort others, and never be afraid to laugh at myself.
- No matter how great or small the offense against me, I will try to FORGIVE.
I will be the victor, not the victim.
