The text in the background has a list of personal decrees to "master self" that state:
My thoughts are the foundations upon which all of my actions are built. I am vulnerable to performing any action that adheres to my thoughts. I realize that the end result is the summation of smaller parts. Similarly, my results are the summation of my many smaller choices. I understand that corporeal value is a reality but I also understand that true value is often intangible. I understand that thoughts must be expressed through language. Therefore, I must choose my words accordingly to express my thoughts most accurately. Every moment is a milestone and everyday's an opportunity. My daily activities must be apportioned to build efficacy. Time is an asset I must appropriate wisely. I understand that I should not be fearful of mistakes nor should I shun greater responsibility out of fear. Mistakes, as all other deeds, are lessons to be learned from. I seek knowledge conscious of it being a catapult toward understanding. I realize life's essential truths have existed prior to my physicality. I am blessed by their being bestowed upon me. I embrace the opportunity for new light to be cast on existing truths that are yet to be found. I understand that principles are immutable yet behavior can be volatile. If I understand the principle I can understand the behavior despite its instability. It is better that I seek to understand before I seek to be understood. In doing so I given the opportunity to learn more. My purpose in life is to do my best and create a history for those who live with, beyond and after me to learn from. Every opportunity is a blessing and every blessing is a gift. There is no might or power except with God.
