Rule number One: You have value.
You may not realize all that you have of value to others. I'm not talking about belongings, but instead, "valuables". You make choices in life and they affect others as well as yourself. With each choice there are consequences, good and bad. What things of value do you have? Well, lets focus on those things that others want, since that is the subject at hand.
In no particular order, here are a few:
1. Your ability to talk or communicate with others.
2. Your vote.
3. Your effort or work.
4. Your obedience and support.
5. Your LACK of action.
6. Your freedom.
Main Point! Never doubt the value that these things have! Others want these things from you. In order for you to live and think independently, you must control and protect these "valuables" from misuse by others.
