Some useful advice, but I couldn't get past the repetitiveness and casual sexism. ( )
  SarahMac314 | Aug 12, 2022 |
Hmmm, well, my review on this one is going to be mixed -- on the one hand, I found the reader soothing and some of the stories and philosophies were helpful to me; one the other hand, Dale Carnegie was an adult in 1909 and it shows -- dismissive and patronizing comments about women, foul opinions about "melancholics" (depressed people), dated language and an overdependence on prayer/Christian thought.

There's also a whole chapter convincing the reader why worry is a problem that is pretty stressful for those of us who are worried about the medical effects of stress -- just sayin' -- I'm reading the book to reduce my worry, not increase the possible reasons for it. I also appreciate that as indoctrinated Christian writings go, this is relatively neutral -- he's all about the power of prayer no matter what your religion is, but I had to skip at least one chapter completely and when he started praising the founder of Christian Science, it set off a fair few alarm bells for me. Anyway, those are my personal biases, and I have to admit I was charmed and intrigued to hear about what people in earlier America were thinking. I can't tell exactly what decade this book was intended for, but I suspect the 1950s. It's an interesting time capsule.

With regards to the tangible advice portion, I found some of it helpful, and in line with my therapist's suggestions -- break down the problem into manageable chunks, try and redirect your brain when it gets fixated on the problem, find ways to reduce your fear and remove the problem from the influence of overwhelming emotion. I also really respond well to personal anecdotes as a learning tool -- when I have a problem, often I will turn to friends to ask how they have handled things as part of my own process. This book felt very similar -- giving me little road maps to think about and determine whether they are useful to me. ( )

It didn't stop me from worrying, but gave me a couple of techniques to prevent worry from dominating my life. ( )

Carnegie presents interesting methods or avoiding worry but spends too much time proselytizing for Christianity. I did not like all of the religious aspects of his book but appreciate some of the methods he outlines for avoiding worry. It is an easy read full of anecdotes but way too much religion. ( )

Key takeaways
1. Worrying never solves the problem. It only adds onto it
As human beings, we are bound to worry. We worry about countless things. How do I speak in front of 100 people tomorrow!? I haven’t studied for my tomorrow’s exams, what to do now!? I wasn’t aware that I spent 4 hours on social media!! It’s already 4 AM, yet I cannot sleep. Panic! Panic! Panic!!!

These were a few worry traps that you may have experienced. Think about your own situations when you had worried a lot. Has worry ever solved your problem? Worry only expanded your problem, didn’t it?

Carnegie argues that we waste a lot of time thinking about our problems. We think of all the terrible consequences we could face in our problems. We rarely think about the solution part.

When faced with insomnia, we check our clock constantly. We then think all the bad things that could happen the following day due to lack of sleep. At that moment, we all know that forgetting about everything and falling asleep is the most crucial task to do. Yet, we fail to do that.
