“My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.” –Michel de Montaigne
90% of the things we worry about usually do not happen, but we worry and fret anyway. Most things in life are transient. Cherish the good times, for they would not last forever, and do not sweat the tough times as they also won’t last forever. No one has a problem-free life, murphy’s law is always around the corner, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” In How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, Author Dale Carnegie shares some great insight on managing worry, dealing with the vicissitudes of life, and living a life filled with joy and happiness.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Here are my favourite take-aways from reading, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie.
