The Dale Carnegie Stress and Worry Principles

Breaking the Worry Habit Before It Breaks You

  1. Keep Busy

    Crowd worry out of your mind by keeping busy. Plenty of action is one of the best therapies ever devised for curing “wibber gibbers.”

  2. Don’t Fuss About Trifles

    Don’t permit little things – the mere termites of life – to ruin you happiness.

  3. Use the Law of Averages to Outlaw Your Worries

    Use the law of averages to outlaw your worries. Ask yourself: “What are the odds against this thing’s happening at all?”

  4. Cooperate with the Inevitable

    Co-operate with the inevitable. If you know a circumstance is beyond your power to change or revise, say to yourself: “It is so: it cannot be otherwise.”

  5. Decide Just How Much Anxiety a Thing May Be Worth

    Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth and refuse to give it more. Put a “stop-loss” order on your worries. Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth – and refuse to give it any more.

  6. Don’t Worry About the Past

    Let the past bury its dead. Don’t saw sawdust.
