Within the medicine wheel, the sacred hoop of the Lakota people, are four virtues:
Bravery: doing the difficult things instead of running away.
Wisdom: the idea that learning is a lifelong process
Perseverence: the fortitude to keep trying
Generosity: sharing of oneself with empathy and compassion
I do believe that these four virtues are not only necessary but also sufficient for one to live a happy and fulfilling life. All we need is faith in ourselves and in Lakota wisdom.
