How to stop worrying and start living by Dale Carnegie

Worry these days have become  part and parcel of our life. We worry about reaching office on time. Or not meeting a deadline at work. The end result : Falling ill. In this book Dale talks about  understanding worry and solving the problem.

This book is divided into eight parts. Understaing any problem helps a long way in solving a problem.He talks about living in day tight compartments. Give us this day our daily bread .The prayer is talking about not yesterday bread or tomorrow bread . So live for today and dont think about the future.

Solving worry involves getting the facts ,analyzing the facts and arrivinsg at a decision. This is the second part. The third part is about is how to keep worry out of the mind.It might help if you write your problem  down on a piece of paper.

All the other parts are showing you pratical formulas that you can use today.Dale says cure the mind not the body.One way to not to worry is to do something constructive . You will be busy working and not get time to think about the problem. The things given in this book are known to us but dale is reminding us.

Never have revenge in mind to harm the person who has harmed you. This way you will harm yourself more than the person who has harmed you."Sticks and stone may break my bones but words can never hurt me."

I liked this book because it has a lot of case studies and one can relate to them
