Meaning of “H.O.W.”

On most anniversary chips I see "H.O.W." printed inside the triangle. What does this mean?
H.O.W. is an acronym for Honesty, Open Mindedness & Willingness.

It comes from the Spiritual Experience appendix of The Big Book:
"We find that no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program. Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery. But these are indispensable."

Do you think this answer is accurate?
