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 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.

By Chris­tian D. Lar­son {I Prom­ise Myself}
