Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will only socialize to the group of good and wise people, for they were a good source of good character, knowledge as well as wisdom. By associating and socializing with them, you also will become good in character as well as will become wise!
Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will avoid the negative, toxic people who are only fun of talking, back-fighting, criticizing as well as mocking the mistakes and faults of other people, for theyre virus and venom are severe that even the medical surgeon cannot help them heal their diseased and has experience difficulty to cure the poisons and scars of their victims.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will begin to establish your goal in life. Make your goal achievable, contrite and specific so you can make your life to have a sense of direction as well as a sense of meaningful and productive living.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself, that you will nurture your character, for your character will be your only and best weapon to close the mouth against the evil-tongues of your enemies. For your character will cover and protect your reputation.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself, that you will do your work as perfect as possible. Make it a life rule to give your best to whatever passes through your hands. Stamp it with your manhood. Let superiority be your trademark; let it characterize everything you touch. This is what every employer is looking for; it indicates the best kind of brain; it is as the best substitute for genius. It is better capital than cash; it is a better promoter than friends, or pulls with the influential.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself, never to allow any dishonest gain or faults in your work that will come in your hands. For every fault you allow to become a habit, to get control over you, helps to make you second-class and puts you at disadvantage in the race for honor, position, wealth, as well as happiness.
Beginning today, promise these yourself, never to criticize people. Criticizing it only marks, shows as well as acknowledges that you are an inferior person. Always bear in mind that a wound from a tongue is worst than a wound from the swords. For latter affects only the body; the former affects the spirit. Always remember to be patient in dealing with people for you are not dealing with a people of logic but you are dealing with a people of emotions.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will practice encourage instead of discourage. Remember your life is like a vapor that appears for a moment and then disappears! Therefore, any good that you can do or any kindness you can show to any human being let you do it now. Let you not defer it or neglect it; for you shall not pass this way again.
Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will make your life not just for a living. For thousands of men breath, move and live pass off the stage of life and are heard no more. Why? They did not give a particle of good in the world. None were blest by them. None could point to them as the instrument of their redemption. Their light went out in darkness and they were not remembered more than insects of yesterday. Will you live and die? Live for something!
Beginning today, promise these to yourself that you will make God be as your partner in every adhering in life. By making and putting God the center as well as partner of your life, everything will come together. Always recall this, with men everything is impossible but with God all things are possible!
Wish you many blessings to come and God bless!
