The Optimist Creed


I recently stumbled on the Optimist Creed online while researching on a speech am about to give and I really loved it and I thought it would be nice to share it. The Optimist creed was developed by Christain D . Larson In 1912 in his book РYour Forces and How to Use Them. The Optimist Creed is the Official Creed of the Optimist International (Optimist Club), it was adopted as the official creed of the optimist club in 1922. The Optimist creed is a number of pledges to which members of the Optimist club attempt to adhere to. Here is the Optimist Creed;

  • 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 improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
