To be so strong that nothing can
disturb your piece of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look an 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 deed.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
I could not have written a better personal mantra. I hope it inspires others as it has inspired me.
