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 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 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.
