When he has no confidence in him
self nor his fellow men.
When he values success more than
character and self respect.
When he loves his own plans and In
terests . ore than humanity.
V\ >en he does not try to make hie
work a little better each day.
When his friends like him for what
he has more than for what he is.
When he knows that he is In the
wrong, but is afraid to admit it.
When he is so busy doing that he
has no time for smiles and cheering
When he is so burdened by his busi
ness that he finds no time for rest or
When he envies others because they
have more ability, talent or wealth
than he has.
When he lets a day go by without
making some one happier and more
When -he values wealth above
health, self respect and the good opin
ion of others.
When he becomes so absorbed in his
work that he cannot say that life is
greater than work.
When he dees not care what hap
pens to his neighbor or to his friend
so long as he is prosperous.
