'I Promise Myself' by Christian Larson'
I promise myself to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
I promise to make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
I promise to think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
I promise to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
I promise to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
I promise to think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but in great deeds.
I promise to live in faith that the whole world is on my side so long as I am true to the best that there is in me.
