I have had this for a long time and every time I read it I feel empowered. It has also been a great topic in group sessions I have facilitated with adolescent, adult male and females. I hope you enjoy it.
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 to make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work
only for 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 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 critizie others.
to be too lare for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear, and too happy
to permit the presence of trouble.
