Time spent positively on developing a new interest or cultivating a wider social circle would be well spent instead of time spent negatively worrying?

May I suggest picking up a book called "Think & Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill. Saw it at Lamcy book shop I think. Should be available at Magrudy or elsewhere. Like other authors on the importance of right attitude - namely Norman Vincent Peale and Dale Carnegie -Success according to Hill is a state of mind. Attitude is everything.
Very very good reply.......Anthony Robbins, David Scwartz and most notably Donald Trump have taught during bad times it is always good for some talented ppl to prove thier worth. Companies tell me "it is bad time now could you give us good price for your machine?" I tell them every company has a choice- either stay in the dark or head towards the light outside the tunnel. Either become mediocre/history or be progressive."

My boss told me it's very bad time , I told him "fire me and save money" He smiled and said "That's impossible!"

Even if he had fired me I would have given one damn about it and would have learned form experience and moved on.

Remember security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
