I believe that God created me to be happy, to enjoy the blessings of life, to be useful to my fellow-beings, and an honor to my country.
I believe that the trials which beset me today are but the fiery test by which my character is strengthened, ennobled and made worthy to enjoy the higher things of life, which I believe are in store for me.
I believe that my soul is too grand to be crushed by defeat; I will rise above it.
I believe that I am the architect of my fate; therefore, I will be master of circumstances and surroundings, not their slave.
I will not yield to discouragements, I will trample them under foot and make them serve as stepping-stones to success. I will conquer my obstacles and turn them into opportunities.
My failures of today will help to guide me on to victory on the morrow.
The morrow will bring new strength, new hopes, new opportunities and new beginnings. I will be ready to meet it with a brave heart, a calm mind and an undaunted spirit.
In all things I will do my best, and leave the rest to the Infinite.
I will not waste my mental energies by useless worry. I will learn to dominate my restless thoughts and look on the bright side of things.
I will face the world bravely; I will not be a coward. I will assert my God-given talent and be a better person in all I do. For I am Immortal and nothing can overcome me.
