1 Begin with the fact that worry is a habit. Just like any other habit, it can be faced, dealt with, and overcome. Often we do not worry about specific trouble; rather we worry because we have acquired a bad habit.10 Stop worrying about whether or not you have been duly rewarded. Do your work, be patient, keep a cheerful disposition, and you can be certain that eventually you will receive the respect due you. Don't worry about it; you will be recognized. Believing that, you are under less strain.13 At night when you come in from a day's work, before you sit down to dinner, you go and wash your hands. It is also a marvelous experience to practice washing out of our minds the unhappy thoughts and experiences of that day. It is marvelous to empty your minds of any insecurity you may feel.
