The Optimists’ Creed


* 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 you 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 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 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.

Written by Christian D. Larson – 1922.

There’s only success and happiness as results of being optimistic.
