TELL THY SELF...

I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twenty-four hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything else to my desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes and fit myself into it.

I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study; I will learn something useful; I will not be a mental loafer; I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count; I will do at least two things I don't want to do, just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

I will be agreeable. I will look as good as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective on my life.

I will be unafraid. I will enjoy that which is beautiful and will believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
