Promise Yourself

promise-yourself

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 that

there is something in them To look at the sunny side

of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only 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 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 countenance at all times

and give every living creature 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,

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 words but great deeds.

To live in faith that the whole world is on your side

so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
