JH Optimist

Advisor: Carrie Murdock

The Optimist Creed
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 that
 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 to 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 to the greater achievements of the future.
    • To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and
     give every living creature 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,
    too strong for fear, and too happy to permit
    the presence of trouble.
