Boy Scout Oath
Oath: A solemn, formal declaration or promise to fulfill a pledge, often calling on God as witness.
| 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.
When making a promise or oath, be sure you know what you are promising...
The Boy Scout Oath has three main clauses which are good to remember and may help you understand that the oath is meant to cover all parts of your life:
Boy Scout Motto, Boy Scout Slogan, Boy Scout Aims and Methods, Boy Scout Law

Page - the proposal to do that is to be presented at the October National Executive Board meeting. If adopted, it would probably roll out in 2016. See scout-wire.org/2012/08/02/one-oath-and-law-proposed-for-all-bsa-programs/Apr 24, 2013 - melanie king

High Ideals invite failure. A person of high ideals need always credit themselves for success without letting that success create an attitude of superiority over anyone. A person of high ideals need always ready to forgive themselves thoughtfully but fully for failures. Without forgiveness of self, forgiveness of others would be impossible, and strength to hold high ideals will surely be pushed out of our souls by the memory of imperfection. There is no perfecting human character, but their is value purely in the work to achieve it. The humility that comes with awareness of imperfection is essential.
