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 #17 When life gives you a lemon, let’s make lemonade.
This is probably one of Carnegie’s most popular quotes.
Instead of bathing in self-pity, the wise man asks:
- What lesson can I learn from this misfortune?
- How can I improve my situation?
- How can I turn this lemon into a lemonade?
The best things in life are the most difficult ones.
