The Optimist Creed

I promise myself:

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, & 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 & make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, & 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 & 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, & too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself & 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.
