    • A person's potential to learn islimitless.
    • All people have intrinsic worth.
    • Strength comes from engaging the full diversity of the community.
    • Teamwork is essential to the continuous success of an organization.
    • Family is the most important influence in the development of the individual.
    • People can direct their own future.
    • People are influenced more by what others do than by what they say.
