The Optimist Creed

I recently came across something called The Optimist Creed.  This little gem has been around for almost 100 years, and has been used everywhere to spread motivation -- from hospital rooms to locker rooms.  I thought you would enjoy.

I Promise Myself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity 
to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel 
that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything 
and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, 
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others 
as I am about my 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 a smile to every living creature I meet.
To give so much time to improving myself 
that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, 
too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself 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 my side,
so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

--Christian D. Larson

 I hope you'll promise yourself to have a wonderful day!  :-)
