Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.

I have found a book of Richard Carlson ” Don’t Sweat the small Stuff “.  We are often being worried for the tiny problems of our life. But we should think, that actually it is tiny and it will not harm us as much we think of that. This is the book which shows how to tackle this kind of problems, and author has also gave some examples to make us believe that, we should not sweat the small stuff and all the small stuff. Below are the sample and introduction of the book which I think can generate the interest to read the whole book.

 

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.

                                                                                                                                                        -WILLIAM JAMES

 

Whenever we’re dealing with bad news, a difficult person, or a disappointment of some kind, most of us get into certain habits, ways of reacting to life – particularly adversity – that don’t serve us very well. We overreact, blow things out of proportion, hold on too tightly, and focus on the negative aspects of life. When we are immobilized by
little things – when we are irritated, annoyed, and easily bothered – our (over-) reactions not only make us frustrated but actually get in the way of getting what we want. We lose sight of the bigger picture, focus on the negative, and annoy other people who might otherwise help us. In short, we live our lives as if they were one great big emergency! We often rush around looking busy, trying to solve problems, but in reality, we are often compounding them. Because everything seems like such a big deal, we end up spending our lives dealing with one drama after another.
After a while, we begin to believe that everything really is a big deal. We fail to recognize that the way we relate to our problems has a lot to do with how quickly and efficiently we solve them. As I hope you will soon discover, when you learn the habit of responding to life with more ease, problems that seemed “insurmountable” will begin to seem more manageable. And even the “biggies,” things that are truly stressful, won’t throw you off track as much as they once did. Happily, there is another way to relate to life – a softer, more graceful path that makes life seem easier and the people in it more compatible. This “other way” of living involves replacing old habits of “reaction” with new habits of perspective. These new habits enable us to have richer, more satisfying lives. I’d like to share a personal story that touched my heart and reinforced an important lesson – a story that demonstrates the essential message of
this book. As you will see, the events of this story planted the seed for the title of the book you are about to read.

About a year ago a foreign publisher contacted me and requested that I attempt to get an endorsement from best-selling author Dr. Wayne Dyer for a foreign edition of my book You Can Feel Good Again. I told them that while      Dr. Dyer had given me an endorsement for an earlier book, I had no idea whether or not he would consider doing so again. I told them, however, that I would try. As is often the case in the publishing world, I sent out my request, but
did not hear back. After some time had gone by, I came to the conclusion that Dr. Dyer was either too busy or unwilling to write an endorsement. I honored this decision and let the publisher know that we wouldn’t be able to use his name to promote the book. I considered the case closed. About six months later, however, I received a copy of the foreign edition and to my surprise, right on the cover was the old endorsement for the earlier book from            Dr. Dyer! Despite my specific instructions to the contrary, the foreign publisher had used his earlier quote and
transferred it to the new book. I was extremely upset, and worried about the implications as well as the possible consequences. I called my literary agent, who immediately contacted the publisher and demanded that the books be taken off the shelves. In the meantime, I decided to write Dr. Dyer an apology, explaining the situation and all that was being done to rectify the problem. After a few weeks of wondering about what his response might be, I received a
letter in the mail that said the following: “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.”
