You get to decide for yourself, if life will be good or bad. Part of living the good life, is learning how to get rid of worry. Dale Carnegie in his book “How To Stop Worrying And Start Living!” gives us some good insight into how we can get rid of the worry and negativity that robs us of joy and begin to live in the optimism of hope that fills our life with unlimited potential and incredible purpose.
Here are five ideas to get you headed in the right direction:
1.) Live today – today! Today is what you’ve got, so stop worrying about tomorrow and get busy enjoying what you’ve got, with who you’ve got.
2.) It is what it is, so accept it and make the best of it! Whatever is, is and you have to decide what you are going to do with what is. Wishing it was different does not change anything. Accept what is and do what you need to do.
3.) Make a decision and take action! Ask yourself these questions: What is causing my stress, worry, negativity? What can I do about it? What will I do about it. Now – DO IT!
4.) Build in rest! Don’t wait until you are tired to rest. Rest before you get tired. Learn to take little mini vacations. 5 minutes can make more of a difference than you realize. Take some time for yourself and practice some meditation which will allow you to focus on positives and you will learn to chase the negative away.
5.) Get interested in others and bringing a smile to their face. Life really does take on a whole new meaning when it becomes about someone besides yourself. Helping others to be blessed, blesses you in ways that you could never dream or imagine.
