As years go by and we grow older each year and wiser as we would like to think, there are certain statements that define our being. These are shaped by our values, beliefs and experiences.
If you allow yourself the time to ask yourself such questions, you would be in a position to come up with your creed or manifesto. You don't have to reinvent the wheel, though. You can start with a creed or manifesto that others put together. In time, you can adjust it, keep the parts that resonate with you and remove the ones that don't.
As Picasso had said,
Good artists copy, Great artists steal.
History has taught us, that there are many other before us that have been in the same predicament and have managed to distil values, beliefs and wisdom in a single page.
The earliest creed appeared in the 13th century and was the Apostles' Creed as an early statement of Christian belief and a symbol of faith and was in Latin. The prayer is something I've used but never thought It was depicted in this way.
We can draw examples from religion such as the one above and create our own personal manifesto or creed, and that represents our values, beliefs and ideas. It is something that you can look at every day and remind yourself what you stand for. I have collected below four creeds and one manifesto for creating your own statements and clarifying to yourself exactly what makes you who you are.
The following creed that I came across the other day fits that profile. It was written in 1927 by Max Lachman and it is called the Desiderata of Happiness. Desiderata is Latin for "desired things" and it is a timeless piece that you can refer to in times of weakness or when feel you are getting too sucked into your problems.
2. The Winners Creed
The creed below is taken from Napoleon's Hill book "Think And Grow Rich" and is described as the Self-Confidence formula. I found out about this from Tony Robbins and is something I read every morning.

3. The Creed Of Living Legends
The following creed is from Scott Dinsmore at Live Your Legend. Scott has created an incredible global community, and I have attended local meetups quite a few time in London.
4. Good Life Project
The next Creed is from Jonathan Fields at Good Life Project, and it is packed with wisdom.
5. The Motivation Manifesto
Finally, Brendon Burchard has wrote a book called The Motivation Manifesto which I got for FREE a couple months ago and just paid for the postage.
Brendon has a created an amazing manifesto with 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power. I highly recommend that you read it and start working on your manifesto.
You can also follow his Free course at Kajabi Next.
Until then, start with one of the personal creeds above and incorporate it into your morning routine. It will set you on an entirely different path starting from tomorrow morning.
