Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get. - Dale Carnegie

Success is getting what we truly need, happiness is appreciating what we get.

Why It’s All Small Stuff…

It’s all small stuff. - Dr. Wayne Dyer

don’t sweat…

Richard died suddenly in 2006; he left quite a legacy in the ‘Don’t Sweat’ series of books he wrote! There’s an interesting story about how the name of his book came about! Richard was still trying to gain permission for one of his current books when a foreign publisher published a previous endorsement by Dr. Dyer. After the fact Richard wrote apologetically to Dr. Dyer trying to explain what happened and received the following reply:

“Richard.

There are two rules for living in harmony.

#1) Don’t sweat the small stuff and

#2) It’s all small stuff.

Let the quote stand.

Love, Wayne.”

2nd Basic Technique to ‘Break the Worry Habit Before it Breaks You’ : Don’t fuss about trifles!

This situation was not necessarily a ‘trifle’ for Dr. Dyer, but he treated it as such! What grief do we cause self and others when we fuss about mere trifles?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM treating life as small stuff!

Why We Must Keep Busy!

An empty mind is the devil’s workshop!

thinking –> worry

Most of us are big thinkers. And that’s one reason we’re so good at worrying! When we worry, we do crazy things. We get stressed, we eat, we get obsessive and we make bad decisions…

1st Basic Technique to ‘Break the Worry Habit Before it Breaks You’ : Keep busy!

A truly empty mind would be a Zen mind! However until we can just be, we need something to do! Let’s stay busy. Later through stillness, we’ll be able to truly empty our minds. Then ‘peace beyond understanding’ descends to possess us!
