THE 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 there is
something in them. *To look at the sunny side of everything and make our optimism come
true. *To think only of the best, and 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 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.
