This evening we are going to tap into a little more of Dale Carnegie’s wisdom. I would like to share with you a few nuggets I got from his second chapter out of How To Stop Worrying and Start Living
1. When you are stewing and worrying about something, ask yourself: “What is the worst that could happen”?
2. Accept the worst. Yes, it sounds a bit counter intuitive but actually force yourself to imagine the worst and then actually accept it (in your mind) as if it happened… you see if you really accept this worst case scenario you really have nothing left to lose now, do you?
3. From this (low) acceptance point, work on improving things.
*True peace of mind = accepting the worst.
Face the worst and peace will follow!
