Richard Carlson’s ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’ is an amazing book. In the book, Carlson shares amazing advice that will help you live a less stressful life. I once shared the Top 30 Amazing Quotes from the book, and I would love to share more quotes, which I noted down after rereading the book.
- ‘Often we allow ourselves to get all worked up about things that, upon closer examination, aren’t really that a big deal. We focus on little problems and concerns and blow them way out of proportion.’
- ‘So many people spend so much time of their life energy, ‘sweating the small stuff’ that they completely lose touch with the magic and beauty of life.’
- ‘Gently remind yourself that life is okay the way it is, right now. In the absence of judgment, everything would be fine.’
- ‘The need for perfection and the desire for inner tranquillity conflict with each other.’
- ‘When you have inner peace, you are less distracted by your wants, needs, desires, and concerns.’
- ‘The ego is that part of us that wants to be seen, heard, respected, considered special, often at the expense of someone else.’
- ‘Without patience, life is extremely frustrating. You are easily annoyed, bothered, and irritated. Patience adds a dimension of ease and acceptance to your life.’
- ‘Becoming more patient involves opening your heart to the present moment.’
- ‘Whenever we hold on to anger, we turn ‘small stuff’ into really ‘big stuff’ in our minds. We start to believe that our positions are more important than our happiness. They are not.’
- ‘Just sit still, perhaps look out of the window and notice your thoughts and feelings. At first you may get a little anxious, but each day it will get a little bit easier.’
- ‘Repeat to yourself, ‘Life isn’t an emergency.’
- ‘Whether it’s ten minutes of meditation or yoga, spending a little time in nature, or locking the bathroom door and taking a ten-minute bath, quiet time to yourself is a vital part of life. Like spending time alone, it helps to balance the noise and confusion that infiltrate much of our day.’
- ‘A more peaceful way to live is to decide consciously which battles are worth fighting and which are better left alone.’
- ‘Proving yourself is a dangerous trap. It takes an enormous amount of energy to be continually pointing out your accomplishments, bragging, or trying to convince others of your worth as a human being. Bragging actually dilutes the positive feelings you receive from an accomplishment or something you are proud of.’
- ‘Criticism, like swearing, is actually nothing more than a bad habit.’
- ‘When someone acts in a way that seems strange to you, rather than reacting in your usual way, such as, ‘I can’t believe they would do that,’ instead, say something to yourself like “I see, that must be the way she sees things in her world.’
- ‘Life is a process – just one thing after another. When you lose it, just start again.’
- ‘One of the most common mistakes I see when people are attempting to become more inwardly peaceful is that they become frustrated by little setbacks.’
- ‘In terms of personal happiness, you cannot be peaceful while at the same time blaming others. Surely, there are times when other people and/or circumstances contribute to our problems. But it is we who must rise to the occasion and take responsibility for our own happiness.’
- ‘The root of being uptight is our unwillingness to accept life as being different, in any way, from our expectations.’
Hope you enjoyed the quotes from Richard Carlson’s amazing book.
