My Personal Manifesto Essays Examples
I will be a creative being. In the past, I have allowed fear of failure to define me. But, today I will create without fear of failure. I will innovate. And, if my imaginings fail, I will innovate again.
I will aspire, not to riches, but to greatness. I will define greatness as finding a life that provides well for my needs, while leading to contentment and true joy. While in the past, I may have been driven forward by my desire for wealth, I will instead be moved forward by my desire to feel connected to my life work. In such, I will work at something that I find personal interesting, with a cause or company that I can invest in. It will be better to be satisfied by a day’s work, and the personal interest that I take in that work than to be driven forward as a slave to the dollar.
I will commit myself to communication with others that is meaningful, and intimate. Not relying in physical intimacy but instead allowing my closest relationships to be built on the meeting of our minds, before the meeting of our bodies. I will build a close knit circle of friends whom I respect, and who encourage me to move toward the lifestyle I have designed for myself.
I will work to create, in myself a whole person. Embracing my flaws, and accepting my weaknesses, while celebrating my successes and capitalizing on my strengths. I will move toward kindness, genuineness, honesty and integrity. And in this venture, I will ultimately discover a life worth living.
