The Optimist Creed Enjoy your life

I came across this beautiful piece a few years ago, and only today it daunt to me to share it with you. I love its principles, and even though life gets  unpleasant at times, if we could remember those promises to ourself, life will become a brighter journey. xoxo

Glass half empty, or half full? If you always think the glass is half empty, then you should try to become more of an optimist. Becoming more optimistic reduces your stress, makes you healthier physically and mentally, you achieve more in life, etc, etc. So try and change the way you look at things. Become an optimist.

  • To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
  • To think only of the best, to work for the best, and to expect only the best.
  • To be just enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
  • To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future.
  • To wear a cheerful countenance at all time and give every living creature you meet a smile.
  • To give so much time to the improvement of 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 words 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.
