Principle IV: Triskelion despises a drug dealer, the ultimate criminal of society.

Principle V: The Focused Mind: A Triskelion knows what he wants and gets what he wants.
Explanation: Means a Triskelion is goal oriented. He sets his mind on his goal and puts a 100% effort to achieve that goal. Finish what you started. Multi-tasking. Attention to detail.
Explanation: Means a Triskelion is a wise investor and a good
businessman. He’s a hustler with regards to money. He maintains
good accounting records so he knows where he stands financially. With
his principles, he is the person holding the money. In addition to this,
a Triskelion--- being a hardwork and with his burning desire for excellence---
he ends up being the manager, the supervisor, the business owner, the
landlord, the topnochter, the scholar, the professional, the decision
maker. And if you want something done, go to him.
Explanation: The Tau Gamma Chapter after the individual Triskelion is the basic unit of the fraternity. All organizations need money to maintain it’s administrative functions, finance it’s projects, give support to other Triskelions.
Principle VIII : Pain. A Triskelion can endure excessive physical
pain. It’s his mind over his physical body.
Principle IX: A Triskelion is a family man. He takes care of his family.
Explanation: Means a Triskelion provides food, housing and education to his family. It also means providing love to his family like dating his partner in life, taking her out to movies, taking kids to basketball, etc.These things doesn't necessarily mean fancy meals or extravagant outings. It is spending quality time to your family. It's what you put rather than what you receive from your family that is important. Tau Gamma Phi is an advocate in strenghtening the filipino family.
For a young Triskelion, that means respecting your parents like being polite to them, helping in the house, do your homework. Go get a job if you are a stand-by.
Explanation: Means we must not be fat so we can avoid diabetes,
high blood, heart attacks. A Triskelion ideal body is that like of Arnold

self handsome). Follow the TGP Dress Codes. It will make you look sharp
and feel good about yourself.
