Promise Yourself...

Dear Children,

Promise yourself 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 like
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 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 the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living person 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,
and too strong for fear, and to happy to permit the presence of trouble.

With Love, Amma-Naana
