How to Stop Worrying and Start Living – Rule #7

As an exercise I will post each day one of Dale Carnegie’s How to Stop Worrying and Start Living rules. This book was written in the 30s and is still of great popularity. The book offers a set of practical formulas to help overcome worry which are said to last a lifetime.

Hope you’ll enjoy it and get some worry less enlightenment.

Rule #7 Don’t let the beetles get you down.

“Half the cases in our criminal courts originate in little things. It is the small blows to our self-esteem, the indignities, the little jolts to our vanity, which cause half the heartaches in the world.”

Our life’s are so short in the big picture. Let’s ensure we devote our life to worth-while actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and ensuring undertakings.

Let’s not allow ourselves to be upset by small things which we should despise and forget. Remember “Life is too short to be little.”
