The "Inside-Out" approach to personal and self , even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self - with your paradigms, your character, and your motives.

It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people And the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure The betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded
