Creed: Guiding principles; a set of beliefs, principles, or opinions that strongly influence the way people live.

My creed is pretty simple really, basically a small collection of aphorisms:

The best I can be, I must be.
To give anything less than my best is to sacrifice the gift.

Bit by bit, better every day, helping others along the way.
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.

To whom much is given, much is expected.
With great power comes great responsibility.
