Stay Optimistic

Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown in Japan.

Earthquake in New Zealand, where I have some good friends.

Bloody violence in Lybia.

It’s been a depressing few weeks – for me at least. 

It’s times like this that make me glad I’m an optimist.

No career advice in today’s post – just a reprint of The Optimist Creed – something that helps me cope with days and weeks like these…

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 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.

Inspiring and comforting words in times like these – and great career advice.

The Optimist Creed helps me be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.  That keeps me centered and on track.  I hope it will do the same for you.

Have a great weekend.
