Thoughts, ideas, tips and musings as I work alongside small business owners helping them love their businesses back to life!
I recently posted this on my facebook page but now think it needs a slightly longer shelf-life.
What makes a BELIEF SYSTEM? This is one of my foundation stones.
I've kept it with me for more years than I intend naming. (It lives in my diary, my journals) I find myself mentally chanting it to myself as I drive, I doodle and scribble it across sticky notes, books...
The Optimist's Creed:
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 valuable 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 countenance at all times and give every living creature I meet a smile;
To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to criticise others;
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
