Promise Yourself

Many times we make promises to others, but how often does one make a promise to oneself. Let the words of wisdom by Christian D. Larson, be a promise to yourself. Long time back I had seen these words on my Dad’s table and since then my world changed forever. Hope this New Year my first post makes a difference in your life as well.

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 that there is something 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 countenance at all times
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.

Wishing you all a very Happy, Challenging and Fulfilling 2010.
