Promise Yourself - The Optimist Creed
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel like there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater
achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living
person you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no
time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too strong for fear,
and to happy to permit the presence of trouble.
