Great words to live by.
Promise Yourself Happiness!
The Optimist Creed
~Christian D. Larson~ authored by Christian D. Larson in 1912
To be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.
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 come true.
To think only of the best, work only for the best,
and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the
greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give
give a smile to ever living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving 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 too happy to permit the
presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side,
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
