A Few Daily Promises

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. I just wanted to share this poem I stumbled upon today. These are a few promises that you can make to yourself everyday when you wake up in the morning. If you are true to your promises, you will start a chain reaction of events that will be truly amazing.

Have a great day, and many blessings!


Promise Yourself

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 like 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 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 the
greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person 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, and too
strong for fear, and to happy to permit the
presence of trouble.

I really like these promises. I like the idea of "think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best". So often we fail to expect the best, either of ourselves or of others.
I also like the idea of giving so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. How often we criticize others without even thinking about the possiblility that we share those faults with them.
Finally, I like the idea of being just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. It is so easy to become jealous or envious of others, especially of the very rich, and that just leaves you feeling lousy.
