The following ďdaily dozenĒ constitute the personal creed of
Robert Louis Stevenson
- Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
- Make the best of your circumstances. No one has everything, and everyone has something of sorrow intermingled with the gladness of life. The trick is to make the laughter.
- Donít take yourself too seriously. Donít think that somehow you should be protected from misfortunes that befall others.
- You canít please everybody. Donít let criticism worry you.
- Donít let your neighbor set your standards. Be yourself.
- Do the things you enjoy doing, but stay out of debt.
- Donít borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than the actual ones.
- Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities, grudges. Avoid people who make you unhappy.
- Have many interests. If you canít travel, read about new places.
- Donít hold postmortems. Donít spend your life brooding over sorrows and mistakes. Donít be one who never gets over things.
- Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
- Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.
