How to Stop Worrying and Start Living – Rule #16

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 #16 Find yourself and be yourself. Remember there is no one else on earth like you.

Pretending to be someone else is the hidden spring behind many neuroses, psychoses and complexes. Nobody is so miserable as the one who longs to be somebody and something other than the person it is in body and mind. Envy is ignorance and imitation is suicide.

Let’s not imitate others. Let’s find ourselves and be ourselves.
