    "Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune." This book (along with other books by Dale Carnegie) can be life-changing. The book takes the incessant problem of worry, head on. It says that of all the liars in the world most of the time it's our own fears and worries. Worry doesn't take away your troubles but it do take away your peace, that's the main message of the book. He starts very scientifically by searching the causes behind the w "Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune." This book (along with other books by Dale Carnegie) can be life-changing. The book takes the incessant problem of worry, head on. It says that of all the liars in the world most of the time it's our own fears and worries. Worry doesn't take away your troubles but it do take away your peace, that's the main message of the book. He starts very scientifically by searching the causes behind the worry, by taking many case studies. The advice given in the book are really helpful. Its a classic book that must be read if you are in depression and want to come out of it. Carnegie wrote this book into eight parts. PART I: Fundamental facts you should know about worry. Often we worry because we take the burden of both the past and the future with us today. That makes the situation look much more difficult. What we should do is to focus just on today.To solve worry situations, there are three steps you should do. First, ask yourself “what is the worst that could happen?”. Second, be willing to accept the worst if necessary. Third, calmly try to fix the situation you have accepted. PART II: Basic Techniques in Analyzing Worry. To overcome worrying, you should know how to analyze and solve worry problems. You can do that by finding and collecting all the facts, analyzing those facts, making a decision, and act on it. We usually worry about something we are uncertain about. Once we get everything clear, we can see what we should do about it. PART III: How to Break the Worry Habit Before it Breaks You. There is one simple way to crowd worry out of your mind: make yourself busy. When our mind is occupied with work, we won’t have time to worry. I think it applies not only to worry, but to all kinds of negative thoughts as well. We will greatly decrease their influence if we are busy doing something constructive. Often we aren’t happy because we try to change things we can’t change. One should learn to identify those things and accept them. PART IV: Ways to Cultivate a Mental Attitude That Will Bring You Peace and Happiness. There is a “magic” way to cure depression: make other people happy. If you focus on how to make others happy, you will inevitable make yourself happy. The less you think about yourself, the more you will be happy. One more important Rule: Instead of worrying about ingratitude, let expect it. PART V: The Perfect Way to Conquer Worry. Carnegie wrote in his book that one day when his father returned from Maryville, where the banker had threatened to foreclose the mortgage, he stopped his horses on a bridge crossing a river, got off the wagon, and stood for a long time looking down at the water, debating with himself whether he should jump in and end it all. Years later, Carnegie Sr. told him that the only reason he didn’t jump was because of his mother’s deep, abiding, and joyous belief that if we loved God and kept His commandments everything would come out all right. His Mother was right. Everything did come out all right in the end. His Father lived forty-two happy years longer, and died in 1941, at the age of eighty-nine. PART VI: How to Keep From Worrying About Criticism. Do your work as good as possible and then open your umbrella so that the rain of criticisms won’t touch you. Once I’ve done my best, I can be happy no matter what people say. One of the best teachers is your own experience. You can learn from it by taking notes of the fool things you have done and criticize yourself. If you constantly do this, you will constantly improve yourself. PART VII: 6 Ways to Prevent Fatigue and Worry and Keep Your Energy and Spirits High. Dale Carnegie listed down the following six ways in his book: Rest before you get tired; Learn to relax at your work; Learn to relax at home; Apply good working habits (clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand; do things in the order of their importance; when you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts necessary to make a decision; and learn to organize, deputize, and supervise); To prevent worry and fatigue, put enthusiasm into your work; and Remember that no one was ever killed by lack of sleep. It is worrying about insomnia that does the damage – not the insomnia itself. If you can’t sleep, get up and work or read until you do feel sleepy. While it may seem counter intuitive, one of the best ways to increase your productivity is to take rest regularly. Take rest before you feel tired. Doing this simple thing will energize yourself throughout the day and enable you to accomplish more. Learning to banish boredom is essential for happiness. An effective way to do that is by making what you do interesting. Even things that look boring can be made interesting if you are creative. PART VIII: “How I Conquered Worry”. This part contains many stories of individuals who applied the principles outlined in previous parts. There are also some new tips that haven’t been covered before. ..................................................................... Reading How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is like reading centuries’ worth of wisdom in one book. Highly Recommended!

    Remember, it's pointless to worry about insomnia, because you won't die of lack of sleep, your body won't let you! Aaaaahhhhh... I can already feel my worries melting away. Seriously, worrying is the cause of so many problems that we should all do our best to vanquish it.

    Genre: Self-improvement. Publication Date: 1948 This book is the need of the hour. The author has spoken about how worries at different personal and business levels has affected an individual and how it has been a reason for the development of certain disease that could have been avoided. He narrates numerous examples of how people, when in dire situations, some unimaginable, were able to cope with their miseries and turn their negative condition to a positive one. Few of the points worth mentioning Genre: Self-improvement. Publication Date: 1948 This book is the need of the hour.

He narrates numerous examples of how people, when in dire situations, some unimaginable, were able to cope with their miseries and turn their negative condition to a positive one. Few of the points worth mentioning from the book are: - We should be so incredibly busy in whatever we can do, so that we don't get any time to dwell, it maybe our work, socialising, singing, working out, dancing you know or lost in art. We must pick stuff to do and get going. - We must help the ones that need us and express gratitude where ever we can, for that increases our contentment with life. - Rest before you get tired. - On reading the book, we realise how futile it is to spend time worrying on anything, for what we can control we should improvise and what we cannot, we should just let go. - It has helped me gain perspective and at times help me lower my own worries. - If we can learn to enjoy the mundane that causes boredom, we will be able to live a more fuller life of lesser worry and fatigue and perhaps stumble across something beautiful. - Its worth a read and hope it helps you too.

    The advice Carnegie gives is all stuff you've heard before, but he pairs it with compelling stories about people who've taken the worrying to an extreme and who've totally turned their lives around by ditching their angst. Some of my favorite points: Fatigue comes from stress, not from work. Becoming wise is a path. As you go, remember that compassionate, considered responses make life more manageable. Contented life is a choice.

    I think the problem with this book is that it's mostly based on persuasive voice. Once the effects of that wear off, it's hard to be convinced to change an ingrained habit. Although, what helps is a desperation to do so. There are many examples in this book, but very little "this is why it works". Even more so, the further you go into it, the more the author sounds like "What's the matter with you? Don't you see? Why don't you do this?"; and I think, if this were a person-to-person argument, that I think the problem with this book is that it's mostly based on persuasive voice.

Why don't you do this?"; and I think, if this were a person-to-person argument, that's the least effective attitude to take on convincing someone to change something. If one can't get over that tone and recognize their own need, they won't get very much out of this. Dale Carnegie says he was a salesman at some point, and this shows in the way he speaks in his writing. As we get exposed to more and more commercial approaches in daily life, it makes this approach aged - we know better than to listen to every salesman, no matter how convincing he can be. There needs to be more `meat`on what he says in this book, regardless of that it is true wisdom. He is too proud of his abilities to persuade, and relies mainly on this, over good information. He sounds more like a nagging mother. Really, what determines the quality of such a book is: did this actually help, and how effectively? Not the language, voice, or nice examples. For me, it has not swayed me in a profound way that would cause me to change, and I feel like there is still a lot of labour left on my part.

    I was so blue that I didn't have nice shoes to wear, and it was until I met a man on the wheelchair at the corner of the street. He didn't even have both legs. I helped him buy drink from the vending machine. I asked him if he was upset of sitting on the wheelchair every day. He smiled to me, "I used to be, but not now". "Do you think I can speak?", he asked me. That was a strange question. "We are talking right now", I replied unconsciously. "Do you think I can see you?", he continued.

"Do you think I can speak?", he asked me. That was a strange question. "We are talking right now", I replied unconsciously. "Do you think I can see you?", he continued. He made me wild with his nonsense question. I was about to shout at him to stop playing these crazy questions with me, but I didn't. "I don't think you are also blind, aren't you?", I talked to him loudly. He suddenly smiled to me. "You see, now I can talk to a handsome boy like you, I can see my beautiful world of love and joy, I can listen to my favorite music, so how lucky you think I am". Chill ran through my spine as soon as I heard these words. "How lucky you are", I repeated. "What about me? Am I lucky?", I said to myself in my head. I even have my both legs walking on this soft earth. "And then what the hell I'm worried about?"......."Without nice shoes?" I laughed at myself. He totally changed my life, changed the way I'm thinking and used to think. No matter what happens, I'm still a lucky man on the planet. Thank you, Dale Carnegie!

    Fundamental Facts You Should Know About Worry Rule 1 - If you want to avoid worry, do what Sir William Osler did" Live in "day-tight compartments." Don't stew about the future. Just live each day until bedtime. Rule 2 - The next time Trouble - with a Capital T - backs you up in a corner, try the magic formula of Willis H. Carrier: a. Ask yourself, "What is the worst that can possibly happen if I can't solve my problem?" b. Prepare yourself mentally to accept the worst - if necessary. c. Then calmly t Fundamental Facts You Should Know About Worry Rule 1 - If you want to avoid worry, do what Sir William Osler did" Live in "day-tight compartments." Don't stew about the future. Just live each day until bedtime. Rule 2 - The next time Trouble - with a Capital T - backs you up in a corner, try the magic formula of Willis H. Carrier: a. Ask yourself, "What is the worst that can possibly happen if I can't solve my problem?" b. Prepare yourself mentally to accept the worst - if necessary. c. Then calmly try to improve upon the worst - which you have already mentally agreed to accept. Rule 3 - Remind yourself of the exorbitant price you can pay for worry in terms of your health. "Those who do not know how to fight worry die young." Basic Techniques in Analyzing Worry Rule 1 - Get the facts. Remember that Dean Hakes of Columbia University said that "half the worry in the world is caused by people trying to make decisions before they have sufficient knowledge on which to base a decision. Rule 2 - After carefully weighing all the facts, come to a decision. Rule 3 - Once a decision is carefully reached, act! Get busy carrying out your decision - and dismiss all anxiety about the outcome. Rule 4 - When you or any of your associates, are tempted to worry about a problem, write out and and answer the following questions: a. What is the problem? b. What is the cause of the problem? c. What are all the possible solutions? d. What is the best solution? How to Break the Worry Habit Before It Breaks You Rule 1 - Crowd worry out of your mind by keeping busy. Plenty of action is one of the best therapies ever devised for curing the "wibber gibbers." Rule 2 - Don't fuss about trifles. Don't permit little things - the mere termites of life - to ruin your happiness. Rule 3 - Use the law of averages to outlaw your worries. Ask yourself: "What are the odds against this thing's happening at all?" Rule 4 - Cooperate 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." Rule 5 - 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. Rule 6 - Let the past bury its dead. Don't saw sawdust. Seven Ways to Cultivate a Mental Attitude That Will Bring You Peace and Happiness Rule 1 - Let's fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for "our life is what our thoughts make of it." Rule 2 - Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like. Rule 3 - A. Instead of worrying about ingratitude, let's expect it. Let's remember that Jesus healed ten lepers in one day - and only one thanked Him. Why should we expect more gratitude than Jesus got? B. Let's remember that the only way to find happiness is not to expect gratitude - but to give for the joy of giving. C. Let's remember that gratitude is a "cultivated" trait; so if we want our children to be grateful, we must train them to be grateful. Rule 4 - Count your blessings - not your troubles! Rule 5 - Let's not imitate others. Let's find ourselves to be ourselves, for "envy is ignorance" and "imitation is suicide." Rule 6 - When fate hands us a lemon, let's try to make lemonade. Rule 7 - Let's forget our own unhappiness - by trying to create a little happiness for others. "When you are good to others, you are the best to yourself." How to Keep from Worrying about Criticism Rule 1 - Unjust criticism is often a disguised compliment. It often means that you have aroused jealousy and envy. Remember that no one ever kicks a dead dog. Rule 2 - Do the very best you can; and then put up your umbrella and keep the rain of criticism from running down the back of your neck. Rule 3 - Let's keep a record of the fool things we have done and criticize ourselves. Since we can't hope to be perfect, let's do what E. H. Little did: let's ask for unbiased, helpful, constructive criticism. Six Ways to Prevent Fatigue and Worry and Keep Your Energy and Spirits High Rule 1 - Rest before you get tired. Rule 2 - Learn to relax at your work. Rule 3 - Learn to relax at home. Rule 4 - Apply these four good working habits: a. Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand. b. Do things in the order of their importance. c. When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have facts necessary to make a decision. d. Learn to organize, deputize, and supervise. Rule 5 - To prevent worry and fatigue, put enthusiasm into your work. Rule 6 - Remember, no one was ever killed by lack of sleep. It is worrying about insomnia that does the damage - not the insomnia.

Even if you feel that you do not need to worry you should pick up this book and keep it on the top of your list of things to read because the insights that Dale gives on life are just priceless take for example you are really tired after work even though your work is not demanding - the reason you are probably tired is that you feel your job is boring or you don't like what you do having a job like this will get you more wasted then doing a job that is physically and mentally demanding. The book is full of great insights like this and ways to combat stress I am going to read it again now. If you have not read it then please go get it i can not recommend it enough

    This simply wasn't my cup of tea. After the first 2-3 more or less helpful tips, it feels like all we get is a many (many!) stories from individuals, who - through a sudden epiphany - learned how to overcome worry and were cured of various deceases (stomach ulcers were a big favourite) and suddenly led a happy, fulfilled life. At the end of the book, my main impression was not that of a guide through worrying times and of sound advice but of the author hammering home his message of "do not worry This simply wasn't my cup of tea.

At the end of the book, my main impression was not that of a guide through worrying times and of sound advice but of the author hammering home his message of "do not worry! do not worry!" without anything more than anecdotal evidence. Three other points that did not sit well with me but were surely due to my (and the author's) personal backgrounds: 1) This book was written in the 1930s and it showed. It felt a rather sexist to me at times. 2) The author kept referring to many people that may or may not have been famous at the time. Personally, as a non-American, I only knew about two or three of the "celebrities" he mentioned by name and by whose stories or opinions we should have been inspired. It just did not feel legitimate. Much like I were writing a book and quoting my friends and their anecdotes as "evidence". It's not only dubious but boring. 3) The author's faith. Regardless of whether I believe in God or not, there simply was too much emphasis on how everything will sort itself out if we just believe in and rely on God. "If you're so worried that you've made yourself sick with stomach ulcers and insomnia or even cancer, just stop. Stop worrying and trust in God and everything will sort itself out!" Uh, no. I don't buy it. It's hard to explain myself here but this may have worked for me if it weren't about a third of the whole book, and been phrased in a more neutral manner. All that being said, I am aware that this is a self-help book not a physics textbook. Obviously, the evidence is going to be anecdotal but I still wasn't a fan of this.

    A very practical and straightforward book. Surely, anyone who has lived for 25 or 30 years would have known, experienced or heard of the many strategies mentioned in this book. However, it is important for all of us to be kept reminding ourselves, of these timeless ways of living life in a better way. Also, in this book, most of the content is derived from personal life experiences, which makes it "possible" for all of us to implement in our own lives.

    The book provides one with practical solutions to overcome one's worries, yet I found it quite long! I mean 300 pages of numerous examples of worrywarts in hope of the readers' identification with one of them are not necessary since their approach to prevail their fears and worries were almost the same in many cases. Carnegie's strive for assuring the reader that these examples are real by mentioning their full name and addresses was really on my nerves.

Carnegie's strive for assuring the reader that these examples are real by mentioning their full name and addresses was really on my nerves. The way he tried to tell the reader that just because s/he was not born so-and-so, s/he has to stop complaining about their worries was quite a self-esteem ruiner. And his strive to come up with religious names even made it worse. کتاب نکته های کاربردی خوبی داره ولی واقعا 300 صفحه زیادیه و آوردن این همه مثال به امید اینکه بالاخره خواننده بتونه با یکیشون همذات پنداری کنه و به اضطرابش غلبه کنه ضرورتی نداره به خصوص که رویکرد افراد در غلبه به اضطرابشون تو خیلی از موارد از یک جنس هست ولی فقط ظاهر مشکلاتشون باهم فرق می کنه. تلاش نویسنده برای اینکه آدرس و اسم کامل افراد رو بیاره برخلاف تصور مرحوم که فکر می کرد اینطور بهتر میتونه اطمینان خواننده رو جلب کنه هم بیشتر رو اعصاب بود. چیزی که واقعا غیرقابل تحمل بود این بود که چندجا سعی داشت بگه چون واسه فلانی و فلانی چنین اتفاقی افتاده اگر برای من و تو اتفاق بیافته که مشکلی نداره ما در برابر فلانی کی هستیم که شاکی بشیم یعنی رسما عزت نفس آدمی رو به فاک میده که حالا چون من فلانی نیستم آدم نیستم و در انتخاب فلانی هم دقت به خرج داده که مثلا اگر خواننده آدم مذهبی ای باشه لاقل از این منظر تحت تاثیر قرار بگیره . نکته ی قابل توجه برای مخاطب های ایرانی اینه که اگر از دکتر هلاکویی خوشتون میاد با خوندن کتاب میفهمید دکتر این کتاب رو چندبار خونده و حتی تکیه کلام هاش رو هم اینجا پیدا می کنید مثلا "در تحلیل نهایی" یا "کوتاه سخن" که برای من جالب بود

    “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 sleet storms of life—or you can resist them and break!” “Obviously, circumstances alone do not make us happy or unhappy. It is the way we react to circumstances that determines our feelings. Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven is within you. That is where the kingdom of hell is, too.” “I spent twelve ye “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.

The animals confront night, storms, and hunger calmly; so they never have nervous breakdowns or stomach ulcers; and they never go insane.” ~ Dale Carnegie from How to Stop Worrying and Start Living Dale Carnegie rocks. If you’ve read How to Win Friends and Influence People, you’ve been exposed to his laid back, tell-it-like-it-is style. If you’ve got a little more worry in your life than you’d like (who doesn’t, eh?!) then methinks you’ll love this book. I’m excited to share some my favorite Big Ideas: 1. What Worry Does - It’s not good. 2. Live In: - Day-tight compartments. 3. Be Willing to Have It So - Don’t argue with reality. 4. Decide - And rock it! 5. Don’t Cry - Over spilt milk.

    Gawd I am fascinated by the self-help genre. And here we have a founding father. GAWD his stridency. It's like listening to the ads in the back of comic books: Don't let the bully kick sand on you! Get muscles! Stay busy! Boot straps boot straps boot straps!!!!!! Yet I hear his sense: cut to the chase, stop spinning, look clearly, be unafraid. I would finish this, except it's making me nauseated.

Hard for an existentialist to stomach (and yet... there's sense in it!). I do love the harrowing anecdotal Dear Abby-ish tales of woe in which poor saps are saved by simple steps of analytical thinking, after which bloom monetary riches and billowy success. But I don't quite buy it.

    FINALLY. I have finished this book. WHEW. The version I read of this book was published in 1944. I don't know if newer versions have been modified at all, or not. I would've given the book a five star rating if it hadn't been so completely TORTUROUS to get through the chauvinistic view points.

I would've given the book a five star rating if it hadn't been so completely TORTUROUS to get through the chauvinistic view points. Granted, most all of Carnegie's strategies for overcoming stress and worry were excellent and I plan to put many ideas to use, HOWEVER, the ideas presented in chapters like #25 titled: "How the Housewife Can Avoid Fatigue and Keep Looking Young!" are ridiculous. This chapter took me days to get through - and it was only five pages long! For example, to quote from this, my least favorite part of the book, "Yes, you, as a housewife, have got to relax! You have one great advantage - you can lie down whenever you want to, and you can lie on the floor!...Lie flat on the floor whenever you feel tired. Stretch as tall as you can. Roll around if you want to. Do it twice a day." HAH. If I had read this exerpt first, I would have thrown the book in the trash. However, I was determined to acknowledge that this book was written in 1944 and attitudes towards women were much different then. So, I tried to ignore the comments about females and instead focused on the valid strategies to overcome worry. The worthwhile strategies presented outweigh the chauvinistic attitudes. I do recommend this book - but only if you are open-minded.

    “My life has been full of terrible misfortunes most of which never happened.” - Michel de Montaigne, French philosopher You will find no new advice in this book. Dale Carnegie mentions this himself. How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is a collection of tips and tricks on how to reduce stress and the affects stress has on our body. Yet another great book by Dale Carnegie.

    when I decided to read this book I was very depressed and even I couldn't read any more books I don't know why? I was good at outside but my inner life was damaged but after reading this precious book everything changed it was like a window that lets you see the other side of life (the positive side of it) the true stories let us believe in our self that we can do it too

That is why I kept myself giving 3 stars and planned to encourage other potential readers to read it via my 4 stars evaluation. I do not know if I did right or wrong. I guess my own discoveries and results through my hardship in life taught more than I could learn from this book.

    I read this in the late eighties together with the other Dale Carnegie book – How to Win Friends and Influence People. Among the basic techniques to avoid worrying is what everyone knows already – live each day until bedtime. My other favorites are the problem analysis technique (define the problem, its causes, possible solutions and choosing the best solution) and the always dependable – pray. The latter can be used to fill out thoughts with peace, courage, health and hope.
