| The Optimist Creed
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
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
To be too large for worry, too noble for
anger, too strong for fear and to
happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Many have found inspiration in the Optimist Creed.
Optimist International adopted this creed in 1922. It
was originally published in 1912 in a book entitled
"Your Forces and How to Use Them". The author was Christian D. Larson, a prolific writer and lecturer who believed people had tremendous latent powers, which could be harnessed for success with the proper attitude.
