A close guess of her personality may be obtained from her website. On the 4th of December 2015, the SA star shared a motivational poetic piece captioned The Optimist’s Creed by Christian D Larson
I Promise Myself:
- To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind
- To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet
- To make all my friends feel that there something worthwhile about them
- To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true
- To think only the best, work only for the best and to expect only the best
- To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own
- To forget the mistakes of the past and press onto the greater achievements of the future
- To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to everything creature I meet
- To give much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticise others
- To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble
- To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world
- Not loud in words but great in deeds
- To live in faith that the whole world is on my side and that I am true to the best that is in me.
Perhaps this is the secret of Natalie Becker’s determination and multiple international successes.
