The Optimist Creed

We believe in the power of optimism, and therefore, we keep this optimist creed in our office, and make sure to read it at every opportunity.

I Promise Myself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet

To make all my friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my 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 I am about my 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 person I meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I 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.

Creed is from Robert E. Criner, Medicine Park, OK
