A person’s quest for knowledge starts with every word he reads, every picture he sees and every sentence he hears. There are many things that one comes across and catches one’s imagination. There are countless answers to a question of how one should be, how one should behave and what one should expect. It was only through Facebook that I came across this text. A text that answers everything when you feel low, when you feel angry, when one is visionless when one is alone and when one questions his existence in the life circle. The text is written by Christian D. Larson.
In his word the text goes this way....
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 tie 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 whole world is on my side,
so long as I am true to the best in me.
