Carnegie Counsels

“Do the hard jobs first. The easy ones will take care of themselves.”

Dale Carnegie is widely considered to be the father of positive thinking. He believed that circumstances bow to the strength and focus of a mind unencumbered by negativity. A few words of his wisdom to guide us:

“You can conquer almost any fewer if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember: fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”

“We can endure disaster and tragedy, and triumph over them—if we have to. We may not think we can, but we have surprisingly strong inner resources that will see us through if we will only make us of them. We are stronger than we think.”

The world is full of interesting things to do. Don’t lead a dull life in such a thrilling world.”

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

“Today is life—the only life you are sure of…”

“In action breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

Develop success from failure. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.”

“Take a chance! All life is chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.”

“When dealing with people, remember, you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.”

“Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions. It is governed by our mental attitude.”

“The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.”

“If you want to be enthusiastic, act enthusiastic.”

Simple, but powerful words to ponder and apply as we all write on!

    Congratulations to the cast and creative team you selected for your DUST of EGYPT at the Latea theater on Suffolk street in NYC, Karin. It was quite a theatrical experience. The juxtaposition of the evolution of the main character embodied by two actresses was intriguing. The scene of the washing quite unexpected and thought provoking. The evening of the Premiere promises two more triumphal performances! Way to go! What an accomplishment for a first official play in which each word stands out! BRAVO, BRAVO!
    Best to all.
