Everyone on earth is defined by their core beliefs. It’s what makes us all individuals, what separates us from the others. It wasn’t until I was talking with my friend Sean in 8th grade that I started to realize that one of my core beliefs, something I was taught growing up, may not be my own belief.
Today is like any other for me, grumble and scuff out a living. Of course the norm for me is that of any citizen living in zone three. The rules are simple to sum it up, you keep your head down and your mouth shut. Because, every where is sooth zone, soothern

I personally found trying to find a single “Social Norm” to break challenging so I chose to do two instead. The first was to end my phone calls with I love you, and to talk to a stranger in the bathroom stall next to my own. Which is how I confessed my undying love to a coworker. Working at a casino, employees have to call surveillance for anytime they move around with money or have to be escorted to the vault. I’m a pretty lively person but going into work, I started to get this bashful nature about myself especially the closer it came to performing both of the social norms I gave myself to break.
In an approach to illuminate the values that will guide my viewpoint on moral and ethical leadership, the following text is my personal code of ethics. This document focuses on the beliefs that define who I truly am. Simon, Howe, & Kirschenbaum (1995) state, “Values are those aspects of our
As I hold her hand, I think about Patsy and two of her cousins. They all have breast cancer, and they all picked crops in the central Valley of California when DDT was permissible. Rubbing her knuckles as gently as I can, I think of her slow death.
It is a somewhat unspoken agreement that people all have, and breaking this agreement is frowned upon. The bathroom is a very unsocial place. You go do your business and then leave, it is very simple. The social norm that I broke was talking to someone in the stall next to me, and continuing to have a conversation even when it was clear they did not want to have one.
Judge I remember it like it was yesterday. People thought just because, I was from Mexico, I wouldn't be able to succeed in life. People laughed at me just because of the way I spoke English.
… THERE IS NO WRONG (even when it feels shit) That means how we show up in every way, every day. That means Slept so much. Written so much. Experienced so much pain AND pleasure. Served so openly, deeply, willingly and lovingly. I GIVE MY CLIENTS EVERYTHING I HAVE… And I felt like it still wasn’t enough… Fuck! The transformational they receive is mind blowing. How I work is like… something that I can’t even explain because it travels through me and I blow myself away.
I would like to say my personal code of ethics is only what I feel is right. But I know that I have to fall along the lines of ethics while making my decision. For example, I probably will get hate and be judged by this, but it is my personal ethics, if a patient is a substantial amount of pain and begs for their life to end, I personally believe it is okay, with not only their consent, but also those of family members, to "pull the plug". Now before anyone tells me how wrong I am, I know it is a crime and something NEVER to be done. I would not do this because I know it is a crime and would not want to lose my job and have worse consequences. But to sum this up, Yeah, I do have some personal ethics that are not okay in the eye of medical practice
A professional code of ethics is one in which a person chooses how to live and govern their professional, and in many cases, their personal lives (Limentani). When trying to figure out how I would write my own code of ethics, I decided to ask people what one word came to mind when they thought of me ("Personal Code of Ethics"). I then took those words and examined myself. Did I want those first thoughts that people had of me to be my ethical blueprint? A few of them I definitely wanted to include. There were others that I knew were not how I wanted to present myself. I have always lived by the motto that “Perception is Reality.” In other words, if you carry yourself to be professional, others will assume that you are professional. It also
The Integrity Scan from Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott allowed me to sit back and reflect about my personal core values. I believe that values define who I am. In articulating my core convictions it allows me to live a life of meaning and purpose.
My internalized moral perspective score was on the high end of low, meaning that while I still require to improve it, it is stronger than other characteristics of this leadership style. While in my personal life, I do not allow outside pressure to control me or my decisions, in my professional life because I lack that experience of being a leader of a large group of followers, I also lack the confidence of using my internal moral standards and values, and still let outside pressure influence me. At all of the jobs I have had in the past have been as research or administrative assistant dealing with either participants’ or clients’ personal information. I have that confidence of being very careful about the privacy of others’ personal information,
I had the most unusual experience this morning on my walk. Yesterday I spoke my truth with two people who needed to hear it. Or rather, I needed to say it. (I'm guessing they probably would have preferred not hearing it.) Neither situation was an easy one for me and required a great deal of chutzpah. I acknowledge that the fear of rejection is quite strong and often does keep me from speaking up. However, in staying true to "The Four Agreements", I must continue to push myself in areas that feel very uncomfortable. That is the only way I will overcome my tendency to "take things personally" and "make assumptions". If I don't have the courage to ask the tough questions, I will be spending so much unnecessary energy trying to suppress
My Personal Code of Core Values Honesty: I have lived my entire adult life without lying - except for the white lies I tell my wife about the some of the food she makes - and I intend to continue doing so for the rest of my life, and I also intend to teach my daughters to live by the same standard.
