Just for today

    Just for today/只为今天

     By Dale Carnegie/戴尔 卡耐基

    Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

     Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true

    what Abraham Lincoln said;that “Most folks are as happy as

    they make up their minds to be.”

     Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my “luck” as it comes.

     Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

     Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out: If anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two

things I don't want to dojust for exercise. I will not show

    anyone that my feelings are hurt: they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

     Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize

    not one bit;and try not to improve or regulate anybody but


     Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests:

    hurry and indecision.

     Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

     Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful;and to believe that as I give

    to the world, so the world will give to me.
