Promise Yourself

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.


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 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.
