Get the facts. Remember that Dean Hawkes 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.”
The perfect way to conquer worry: Prayer.
Absolutely totally. And always always add in thankfulness, sometimes that is the easiest way to curb worrying.
Apply these four good workings habits:
1. Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand.
2. Do things in the order of their importance.
3. When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts to make a decision.
4. Learn to organize, deputize, and supervise.
If you have a worry problem, do these three things:
1. Ask yourself: “What is the worst that can possibly happen?”
2. Prepare to accept it if you have to.
3. Then calmly proceed to improve on the worst.
What great advice this is… if you can do something about what you are worrying about then do it! Stop wasting time worrying and get to work fixing your problem!
About ninety percent of the things in our lives are right and about ten percent are wrong. If we want to be happy, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ninety percent that are right and ignore the ten percent that are wrong. If we want to be worried and bitter and have stomach ulcers, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ten percent that are wrong and ignore the ninety percent that are glorious.
or, as I told my SS class… don’t forget to be thankful when asking God for things… you may be worried about things we haven’t seen him answer yet but I’m pretty sure there is a lot of good that we sometimes forget to focus on as well…
