I Promise

"I promise myself...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind...
To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them...

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
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 achievement of the future....

To give so much time to improving 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.
To think well of myself and proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but in great deeds.
And to live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me."
