The main purpose of 9 Pillars of LSPR Values is to make all LSPR students well being and have a good attitude. The 9 Pillars of LSPR Values are:
9. Do best
So, what is values? Values is defined as personal qualities of considerable use, considerable service, or considerable importance to one’s self and others.
The benefits of always have values in our lives is the more it is given, the more it multiplies within. For example, if you respect to yourselves and others, others will respect you more.
The rationale why LSPR students must know about this 9 Pillars of LSPR Values is that is believed that success befriends one who possesses the right values and discipline in their life.
And the purpose that want to be reached after the students know about 9 Pillars of LSPR Values is for the students to learn and practice these values in the campus in preparation for their future.
The personal values that we hold will produces integrity when applied constantly and consistently. And we must always remember that values influence our attitude. And the only thing that can make us get 100% of success in this world is only our attitude. Hardwork only serves 98% and our knowledge serves 96%. A successful people posseses good attitude.
Some of big people in the history have give their opinion about honesty. Some of them are Shidarta Gautama The Bhuddist and Socrates.
A Buddhist teaching on honesty taught:
“Real honesty is being honest about what your possibilities are, what your potentials are. That's where true honesty lies. It stretches us. It’s not simply admitting where we are - that’s a beginning step, it’s not the end step. So be honest about where you are but also be honest about what your possibilities are. That keeps the challenge of the path always before us.”
Socrates had much to say about truth, honesty and morality, and explained that if people really understood that their behavior was wrong — then they simply wouldn't choose it. Furthermore, the more dishonest someone is, the less likely they are to understand honesty and characterize their behavior as wrong.
By dishonesty, sometimes it becomes very difficult to us to know the differences between lies and truth.
In what way someones can be dishonest?
- home and family
- to self
The consequence of being dishonest in our lives are:
- no one will believe you
- you have less friends
- difficult to gain success
- you end up a miserable person.
The morale are:
BE FREE FROM LIES.
BE FREE FROM FRAUD.
BE FREE FROM WHAT IS UNTRUE.
DON’T BE MISERABLE BECAUSE OF DISHONESTY.
BE HONEST, YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY.
Politeness is defined as acting to help save face for others, adjust the words which are used to fit with the situation or when you are in the formal function, polished, cultured, refined and well-bred.
Politeness can be expressed in three kind of way, they are:
- not self centered
- hearing carefully
- not interrupting
- not making noise
According to Brown and Levinson, politeness strategies are developed in order to save the hearers' face. In 1963, Erving Goffman published the article "On Face Work" where he first created the term ‘face’. He mentioned that face in reference to how people present themselves in social situations and that our entire reality is constructed through our social interactions. Face is broken down by Goffman into two different categories (two kinds of face): 1) Positive face is the desire of being seen as a good human being, when others like, respect and approve of us and 2) negative face is the desire to remain autonomous, when we feel that others cannot constrain us in any way.
Brown and Levinson outline four main types of politeness strategies:
- bald on-record
- positive politeness
- negative politeness
- off-record or indirect strategy.
Respect are defined as:
- expression of regard, high-esteem, or reverence to another person or to oneself.
- To hold someone in honor.
- Assumption of good faith and competence in a person.
There are some way to gained respect, they are:

The components of respect are:
- Moral values
There are some benefits that we can gain of respect, they are social benefits and personal benefits. The social benefits of respect is reliability to social interactions. And the personal benefits of respect are trust of others, valued opinions and personal happiness.
Respect has great importance in everyday life. As children we are taught to respect our parents, teachers, and elders, school rules and traffic laws, family and cultural traditions, other people's feelings and rights, our country's flag and leaders, the truth and people's different opinions. And we come to value respect for such things. When we're older, we may shake our heads at people who seem not to have learned to respect them.
Self-respect is a valuing form of respect. Like respect for others, self-respect is a complex of multilayered and interpenetrating phenomena. It involves all those aspects of cognition, valuation, affect, expectation, motivation, action, and reaction.
