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
- 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.
