PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE

(PLEASE TYPE or PRINT)

Name: Will be copied from above Name fields

Your "Philosophy of Life" should be developed from a soul-searching experience. It should not be a biography. It should be a review of the truths and principles that you have developed over a lifetime of living, loving, caring, and sharing, the truths that you believe have shaped you as a person and have helped you to accept and improve your life and the lives of those around you. This philosophy should be summarized in a statement, no longer than 35 seconds, beneficial to both young and old. This is the basis for you to serve as a role model for either group. Your “Philosophy of Life” should always encourage, inspire and give solace to the audience. It is suggested that you practice reciting your philosophy so that you can project sincerity and conviction and not merely words. Must be memorized.

*REMEMBER "LIVE"

This is your opportunity to be an inspiration to your audience, friends and family as your living legacy.
