In his book, Principle-Centered Leadership ,Stephen R. Covey gives his philosophy for creating more meaningful relationships and the ground rules for success in our lives.

I agree with his statement," Centering on unchanging principles brings permanency and power into their lives," By putting correct principles at the center of our lives our life support system has four fundamental dimensions: security, guidance, wisdom, and power. These four fundamentals are interdependent. Security and guidance bring wisdom, and wisdom becomes the spark to release and direct power.

As I read Covey's words I had to stop every so often and think about how this relates to my life. What principles are at the center of my life? Are they the correct ones? I found as I read further into his book that I do have good principles at the center of my life. These principles are directly related to putting God first in my life. With God at the center I have found a secure basis to do what I do. Thus I feel confident and knowing my mission in life has given me the freedom to use Covey's ideas.
