Ten years ago, my brother recommended this book to me, together with other books about self-help, self-development. I didn't give a glance but saved it in my computer drive and forgot about it ever since.
When I started the 33books/100days project for my own, I noticed a lot of writers/ authors were inspired by Dale Carnegie. I can understand that there must be some reasons that his books got so popular for these years since last century. I wanted to find out by myself, so I listed it on my to-read list. Still, I didn't realize I had this book in my PC, until I found it by accident. But I feel I meet it at the right time.

Instead of doubting it, why don't we give it a try before putting in any judgement? Taking the initiative to try stop worrying and start living. Don't let the worry become one and the only thing that blocking your way to live your life and exploring yourself of making possibilities. Instead of struggling in the mud of not being able to do anything, change your mind to focus on the things you can do and make a difference, even you think they are small.
Sometimes, we get used to look back when things do not go as we want, or look forward with those heavy expectations/wishes but forget to take actions right on this moment. Are you doing the things you want to live? If not, what are the things holding you back to live the true self? What you can do to change even for a bit? ...(More questions you can ask yourself)
