I am needed.
So you better treat me right.
I give without agenda.
I am important.
I will overwhelm you with my credentials.
I have no need to spread propaganda about myself.
I am special.
Life will never live up to me.
I’m happy to be an ordinary person.
I have studied the situation thoroughly.
So leave me alone.
I trust the right knowledge to come to me at the right time.
I am secure.
As long as I don’t take any chances.
I believe that when I leap, the net will appear.
I have no problems
And therefore, no interest in yours.
It’s okay to cry and be hopeless sometimes.
I’m in charge.
Of you, so you better do what I say.
I offer my power to others for their protection.
I love everyone and everyone loves me.
So it’s time to relax with the remote and a beer.
I have fearless belief in myself and work hard on my own agenda.
The enneagram has endless wisdom, from which I’ve drawn to write what’s above. As I was typing it, I noticed that taken together, the 9 blue statements make a pretty good all-purpose creed.
