The Optimist's Creed

I have this up on my wall at home right next to my vision board, and I was having a read of it and thought it would be nice to share on here for those of you that haven't come across it.  I first saw this and found it in The Secret.  If you would like a printable copy like I have to put up on your wall I have this version here which is from the Secret. 

The Optimist’s Creed by Christian D. Larson

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 worthwhile 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 to 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 expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

•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 to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

•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.
Christian D. Larson (Modified by the Secret 2007)
These affirmations are so powerful, reading them is one thing, living them is truly life transforming.  I try and read this once each day and of course to make an effort to follow these principles. I hope you are inspired to do the same.
