Promise yourself

Our life is run by or guided by the PHILOSOPHY we believe in. PHILOSOPHY we cherish ... we should read, hear or see something INPIRATIONAL everyday, even if it is for a minute or two a day. We may run into a word or a sentence or a paragraph that may prove to be a TURNING POINT in our life .... PROMISE YOURSELF is one of them for me. In this section of INSPIRATION - TURNING POINT I will include all such Philosophies which proved to be TURNING POINTS in my life ....

While I was cleaning my house, I came across the original Card that had inspired me and I must have used this message as much as I could. I could not find it for our SATSANG Bhajan Book, otherwise it would have been there too ...... Just Enjoy .................... and see whether you can charge 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 (& family) feel there is something in them.
  • to look @ sunnyside of everything and make your optimism come true.
  • to think only of the BEST, to work only for the best and 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 improvements 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.
