An Optimist is a person that has a positive outlook on life. Sometimes being optimistic is easier said than done. Here a 10 things you can do every day to be an Optimist…

Commit Yourself:

  1. To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
  2. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
  3. To make all of your friends feel that there is something special in them.
  4. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
  5. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
  6. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
  7. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
  8. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
  9. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
  10. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit presence of trouble.

    That's a great list. I will try the following experiment. I print out the list, I read it twice a day and I commit to apply one or several of the points throughout the day. Let's see, how this will change my life over the next 6 months.

    I agree with everything you said except number 9. I believe it's much better to contribute to others growth.. and that in the process of that you yourself can grow even more. Just my personal take on it…

    Hi Marenda, I'm liking this list very much, especially "forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future." Forgetting past mistakes is a tricky one but it seems to get easier as you get older, as long as your not making new ones!

    Optimistic people are loved by others because they bring a whole new different light to what may seem to others as hopeless situations. Positive thinkers experience less stress, makes more friends, and have a bright future ahead of them! Enlightening post indeed!
