Optimist's Creed

I took Dale Carnegie a long time ago. My reason? I wanted to change the fact that I had more "I'm sorry's" to God instead of "thank You's". One of our instructor's read this poem, I don't know who wrote it, but it was not me.

Promise Yourself...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something of value 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 the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistake so 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 presence of trouble.

I think about this, and really, all of those, they come from God. It's all about Faith and knowing "He's got it".

Hebrews 11:1 1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see
