Promise Yourself
by Christian D 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 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 expect only the best.                                   

To be 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 criticise others.              

    To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,   
too strong for fear and too happy                     
to permit the presence of trouble.
