"The Optimist Creed,"

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 worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your 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 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 a smile to every 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, 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.
Note from Steph: I found this on the web today.....I love it....what if you took one of these a
week and that's what you worked on.....would you be a better, happier person at the end of
12 weeks ? Would the people around you notice a change ? Would the people around you
think you were happier and more content ? Pair this with the love of God and it pretty
much seems like you would be invincible !
