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 others, and to proclaim this fact to the world not in loud words 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 (1874-1954)
