The Optimist’s Creed

I promise myself….

To be 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.”

    Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is one of the most famous and respected self-help teachers in the world. In his recent book STOP THE EXCUSES he examines closely how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours cause us to act as we do and how they can be changed to provide inspiration, encouragement and a vital system for our self – esteem. He categorically states that YOU CAN CHANGE AND LIVE YOUR LIFE HOW YOU WANT – just stop the excuses!

    The following are some of the most common excuses which we give if we are unable to undertake or carry a work from start to finish. Something within us is holding back and that is one of the reason we are unable to enjoy our life at the highest level of success, happiness and health. These are the MIND VIRUSES which Wayne Dyer calls it which has to be decimated in order to achieve excellence in life. These viruses in the form of doubt, fear & inhabitations have to be dispelled which has been imbedded in our thoughts, actions and behaviours. This can be done only by unlearning the old habits which one has inculcated over a period of time and learn new learning which shall pave way for success and accomplishment.

    Along with the common excuses, Wayne Dyer has given affirmations for each excuse which will assist you in making a conscious effort to encourage yourself to elevate your beliefs unquestionably!

  2. Don’t ever give up
    Failure and Success
    is in everyone’s cup

    Rain becomes more enjoyable if it follows a sunny day
    Food become more relishing if for days Hungary you stay

    So, don’t ever give up
    Failure and Success
    is in everyone’s cup

    Gold becomes beautiful ornament by molding and heating
    Marble becomes beautiful status by carving and beating

    So, don’t ever give up
    Failure and Success
    is in everyone’s cup

    Pebble becomes smooth by constant rolling
    Pencil becomes usable by sharpening

    So, don’t ever give up
    Failure and Success
    is in everyone’s cup
