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