Philosophy of Life
Many people develop many different philosophies of life as they continue to grow up. My philosophy of life is based on the Ten Commandments. I believe that everyone should try their best to follow the commandments that were given to us from God. It is not only important that one develops a philosophy of life, but it is more important that one applies their philosophy to their life. I apply my philosophy of life by trying my best to follow the commandments, and when I realize that I have done wrong, I repent and ask God for forgiveness. Jesus summarized this dual purpose of the Ten Commandments with these words: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” I try my best to apply this philosophy to my life.

I apply my philosophy of life by looking to God for guidance, and trusting Him. Honoring God, the source of true wisdom, leads to being honored. Fearing God and keep his commandments is the truly wise course. I apply my philosophy of life by representing myself as a young catholic man, meaning whether I am playing basketball or walking around town, I act like a Christian and I try to live the life God wants me to. I believe that it is crucial for one to represent them self as a Christian and not in a satanic way. I try to treat everyone with the dignity and respect that God wants treat others with. God told us that we do not have to like everyone, but have to love everyone. I try my best to get a long with the people I do not like and I always try my hardest to give them a chance and a fair shot in life. I treat them with respect, and do not treat those people that I may not like unjustly or unequally. I think that everyone should be giving a fair chance and treated equally. Dealing with the subject of treating people equally, I do not think that the mid eastern people, especially from Iraq, should be mistreated

    My personal beliefs have formed me over the course of my lifetime by many different influences. Many people have made important impact in my life that have changed my beliefs in society and my life. The major two values that help determine my worldview are God and Ethics they are the ways that help me shape my beliefs, and life decisions. I feel the strongest aspect of my worldview is my tremendous sense of spirituality and the relationship I have with God. All of these beliefs help me every day with my decisions. The moral values I have learned are from many different influences through my lifetime. Strong Catholic influences have been the good foundation to be closer to God. I have learned to live a life of compassion, service and teaching. Ethical choices that I have made in my life have not been the most popular but they are the ones I live with. One of my beliefs is that not all humans respond or act the same way. It all depends on their world view, background, morals, and personalities. My main goal in life is to help others ever since I was a child.…

    My personal code of ethics is Equality and Sensibility. I believe in a predictable system that assures the well-being of all, especially those without power, is a just system. As a wife, mother, nurse and a member of a community, I strive to do the best I can in every aspect of my life. As a mother, I strive to be a good role model to my children and teach them the fundamentals of life. I strive to be able to give a solid foundation and an easy path to life whether it be school, finding who they want to be as they grow older and for a productive future. As a nurse, I strive for equality of care for every patient and to be able to be their voice when they are not able to speak for themselves. As a member of the community, I strive to lend a hand for the needy and helpless. I speak for and ask help for them i.e. my neighbor, who leaves alone and has no family to be by her side.…

    You should behave positively toward your fellow human beings. Treat others as you want to be treated. You should worship God and have no other gods besides him. I evaluate things to be right or wrong through observation. For example if you need someone in need of help, the right thing to do is help them. The wrong thing to do maybe to just let the person suffer and not help them. We as Christians are…

    Personally, I hold numerous values essential, most notably respect, responsibility, and honesty. These values routinely affect my decision-making in my personal life. I believe individuals must live by the golden rule, "treat others as you want them to treat you" (Luke, p. 6:31). I incorporate this simple advice into all decisions I make both personally and professionally. By asking myself such a simple question, I am able to make a better decision because using the golden rule ensures that I show respect for myself and others in my decisions.…

    As good Catholics we must have respect for life. This has great meaning. We must be supportive for other's needs. If we respect our lives, we can positively support others in their goals. We should all live by treating others how we would like to be treated. If we focus on seeing the good in people, we will also see God in them. Loving every moment of what life has to offer will give us a great appreciation and respect for life. The responsibility as good Catholics to respect life is to understand that life is a gift that we should cherish and thank God that we are given the opportunity to live freely.…

    The “Golden Rule” is truly worth more than gold. It applies to everything, everybody, and every relationship that has ever existed. This highly emphasized “rule” is somehow stated in every religion and belief system of both early and modern civilization. In Judaism, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”; Christianity, “Whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them”; Islam, “Not one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself”; Jainism, “A man should wander about treating all creatures as he himself would be treated”; Confucianism, “Try your best to treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, and you will find that this is the shortest way to benevolence”; Hinduism, “One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of morality. All other activities are due to selfish desire.” This priceless knowledge is the basis life and morality. War, discrimination, struggle, and troubles are all instigated because mankind refuses to follow such a simplistic concept. What I am willing to follow during my studies at University of Phoenix build on the rule that stands as the foundation of the morals that most people follow. As children, we have all heard of the “Six Pillars of Character”. My children even today, bring back papers from school enforcing these six pillars. Respect, caring, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship are the pillars that stand tall above the golden foundation.…

    The meaning of life has been debated among many people throughout history. Different theories have been used to try and explain what our purpose is in this life. I’ve always heard from my parents that life is too short for regrets, and that there will be good and bad days. However what is it that people strive for in life? In reality there is no right answer to this simple question. Some people strive for living life in the moment which philosopher Baggini can agree with. Others see religion as an important way to lead their life’s as Pojman could agree with. Some like Camus believe its “humanly impossible” to find the meaning of life. Ultimately people must find it in themselves as to their purpose in this life.…
