32. The Second Ten Commandments

The Second Ten Commandments

Something to think about...

1.) You shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

2.) You shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

3.) You shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

4.) You shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.

5.) You shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.

6.) You shall not borrow other peoples problems. They can better care for them than you can.

7.) You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in you life and be happy now!

8.) You shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn something new when you are talking, and some people do know more than you do.

9.) You shall not become "bogged down" by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.

10.) You shall count your blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.
