WORRIES – HOW TO STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING BY DALE CARNEGIE
What do you think of this sentence?
“Seventy per cent of all patients who come to physicians could cure themselves if they got rid of their fears and worries.” How to Stop Worrying and Start Living BY DALE CARNEGIE
“No one living has enough emotion and vigor to fight the inevitable and, at the same time, enough left over to create a new life. Choose one or the other. You can either bend with the inevitable sleetstorms of life—or you can resist them
and break!” ~ Dale Carnegie from How to Stop Worrying and Start Living
What are your strategy to deal with worries?
Do you think it is important to be flexible with worries?
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF WORRIES
“You do not not get stomach ulcers from what you eat. You get ulcers from what is eating you.” – Dale Carnegie
“Those who do not know how to fight worry die young.” – Dale Carnegie
“The greatest mistake physicians make is that they attempt to cure the body without attempting to cure the mind; yet the mind and the body are one and should not be treated separately!” – Plato
LIVE IN “DAY-TIGHT COMPARTMENTS
Living in the present.
“So let’s be content to live the only time we can possibly live: from now until bedtime. – Dale Carnegie
‘Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, from now until nightfall,’ – Robert Louis Stevenson.
‘Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all that life really means.- Dale Carnegie
The Big Idea:
“Shut the iron doors on the past and the future. Live in Day-tight compartments.”
And ask yourself these questions:
1. “Do I tend to put off living in the present in order to worry about the future, or to yearn for some ‘magical rose garden over the horizon’?
2. Do I sometimes embitter the present by regretting things that happened in the past—that are over and done with?
3. Do I get up in the morning determined to ‘Seize the day’—to get the utmost out of these twenty-four hours?
4. Can I get more out of life by ‘living in day-tight compartments’?
5. When shall I start to do this? Next week? … Tomorrow? … Today?”
ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT IS
What do you do when facing a great obstacle in your life or job?
‘Be willing to have it so… Be willing to have it so,’ he said, because ‘…acceptance of what has happened is the first step in overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. – William James
“I realized that it’s insane to oppose it. When I argue with reality, I lose — but only 100% of the time. If you want reality to be different than what it is, you might as well try to teach a cat to bark.” – Katie Byron
“You want to stop worrying and start living? QUIT ARGUING WITH REALITY. This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. This is important to understand. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.” – Deepak Chopra
Of course, in challenging times, we want a better future (whether that’s 5 seconds from now or 5 days or weeks or years), but we MUST accept what is. From that place, the tension melts, the worry evaporates and we have all the strength we need to embrace the moment and take the next constructive step toward creating our ideal life. And the best part? We can enjoy THIS MOMENT
HOW TO STOP WORRYING
“Experience has proved to me, time after time, the enormous value of arriving at a decision. It is the failure to arrive at a fixed purpose, the inability to stop going around and round in maddening circles, that drives men to nervous breakdowns and living hells. I find that fifty per cent of my worries vanishes once I arrive at a clear, definite decision; and another forty per cent, usually vanishes once I start to carry out that decision.
So, I banish about 90 per cent of my worries by taking these four steps:
1. Writing down precisely what I am worried about.
2. Writing down what I can do about it.
3. Deciding what to do.
4. Starting immediately to carry out that decision.”
DO YOU WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT YOU
“I realize now that people are not thinking about you and me or caring what is said about us. They are thinking about themselves—before breakfast, after breakfast, and right on until ten minutes past midnight. They would be a thousand times more concerned about a slight headache of their own than they would about the news of your death or mine. Don’t worry about what other people think. They don’t think that often, anyway. Get yourself totally independent of the good or bad opinion of others ” – Dale Carnegie
to get rid – se livrar
to seize – tomar, pegar, tomar posse
to put off – adiar
to yearn – desejar
a golden pot – pote dourado no futuro
to tend – ter a tendência de
sleetstorms – nevasca
