Cub Scout Motto
Do your best!
What the Motto Means
In daily life there are many challenges that put you to the test. Sometimes this involves having to work on items that you feel inadequate to complete. When these situations arise, there is really only one thing that you can do… do your best!
When the task at hand seems like it is impossible, simply do your best. Even if that means that you might fail. Get up after you fail, and do your best again and again. None of us are perfect, and some things come easier to some than to others. And that is ok! Just remember three little words that when placed together have an extremely large influence. DO YOUR BEST!
On my honor, I will do my best.
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
