More about simplyfying life

How very fortunate I am!

In 1968 I was very unhappy and considering suicide. Then I saw an ad in the newspaper that said among other things…”This ad can change your life! – Only $325!” I happened way back then to have only $330 in my savings account, so I withdrew the money and took what I perceived as “my last chance” and enrolled in the Dale Carnegie Course. It remains today the finest investment I ever made in myself. I was ripe for what they teach and it most definitely changed my life.

One of the course textbooks written by Dale Carnegie that had a real impact on me was…”How to stop worrying and start living!” In that book Carnegie teaches many techniques on how to stop worrying. He further advises to…”use the one(s) that make sense to you and forget about the others”.

In my case it worked wonderfully! Since that time I’ve worried about NOTHING! The material presented is as valid today as it was when it was written. The peace of mind that I’ve had for more than 40 years is priceless! I highly recommend this book (and the course) if you need to stop worrying and start living! You should be able to find a copy in most used book stores.
