“We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we that created them” – Albert Einstein
This little poem that follows, came to my attention around-about the time when the movie “The Secret” was released. I have kept this poem all these years, as the words of the poem have helped me through some truly troubling times…
My hope is that these words will assist you as well!
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 time 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 the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
