Virtue of the Week


“Let your acts be a guide unto all mankind… Through them the brightness of your light can be shed upon the whole earth.” —Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 521

A person with “high ideals” is a person who really cares about what is right and meaningful in life. When you practice idealism, you have beliefs that mean something to you and you follow them. You don’t just accept things the way they are. Idealists dare to have big dreams and then act as if they are possible.

Signs of Success

I am practicing idealism when I…

• Really care about what I value in life

• Dare to have big dreams

• Have a vision of what is possible

• Have a plan to make my ideals real

• Do something to make a difference

• Ask God for help and guidance.

I live my ideals. My actions match my words. I believe in my dreams and have faith that with God’s help, anything is possible.
