Promise Yourself

Disclaimer: This article did not originate from me. I found it on a piece of paper I had in an old folder. I don’t recall where I got it from. Anyways, I thought I would share it to help others.

  1. Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
  2. Promise yourself to talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
  3. Promise yourself to make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
  4. Promise yourself to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
  5. Promise yourself to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best.
  6. Promise yourself to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
  7. Promise yourself to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
  8. Promise yourself to wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
  9. Promise yourself to give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
  10. Promise yourself to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
