The Optimist Creed
by Christian Larson

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.
