THE (second) TEN COMMANDMENTS

Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shalt not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shalt not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one has yet succeeded in accomplishing this.

Thou shalt face each problem as it comes, for you can only handle them one at a time anyway.

Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you, for they make poor bedfellows.

Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems.

Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill; it is gone for ever. Give the past to God and concentrate on the present.

Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own.

Thou shalt not be bogged down by frustration, for 90% is rooted in self-pity and will interfere with positive action.

Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking smaller ones, as many small blessings make a big blessing.
