Dale Carnegie is best known as a genius communicator and the author of the bestseller, "How to Win Friends And Influence People." What you may not know is that he was also brilliant when it came to the mind/body connection.
That said...Dale Carnegie's best book actually be a little-known work of art called "How To Stop Worrying And Start Living." In this book, he talks all about how to keep from worrying yourself into an early grave and embrace the day.
One part of this masterpiece book talks about breaking the worry "habit." Most of us are guilty of utilizing this habit from time-to-time. Some of us do this all the time!
When I start to worry about something, I refer to Dale Carnegie's 6 rules for breaking the worry habit... Rule #1: Crowd worry out of your mind by keeping busy. Plenty of action is one of the best therapies ever devised for curing "wibber gibbers." Rule #2: Don't fuss about trifles. Don't permit little things - the termites of life - to ruin your happiness. Rule #3: Use the law of averages to outlaw your worries. Ask yourself, "What are the odds against this thing happening at all?" Rule #4: Cooperate with the inevitable. If you know a circumstance is beyond your power to change or revise, say to yourself: "It is so, it cannot be otherwise." Rule #5: Put a stop-loss order on your worries. Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth - and refuse to give it anymore. Rule #6: Let the past bury it's head. Don't saw sawdust.
I usually have another saying that I refer to..."This too shall come to pass."
In closing, don't sweat the little stuff. In fact, don't sweat the big stuff. Life's too short - live every day like it could be your last. It just may be!
