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 there is something worthwhile 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 to 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 expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving 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 the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

  9. Hi Surjit,

    These are indeed great promises to keep and it is even better to be fulfilled.

    “Promises are like the full moon, if they are not kept at once they diminish day by day”

    Blessings to you, Surjit

  15. These are wonderful inspiring words that we should promise ourselves. I am a firm believer of optimism as well and it has done wonders in my life.

    It may be hard to be on the sunny side of the street all the time but I guess what it really is - is a matter of choice.

    God bless you Surjit! =)
