May Twelfth Success Secret – Dale Carnegie

May 12, 2020 — Leave a comment

Even if you are not a religious person by nature or training-even if you are an out-and-out skeptic—prayer can help you much more than you believe, for it is a practical thing. What do I mean, practical? I mean that prayer fulfills these three very basic psychological needs which all people share, whether they believe in God or not:

  1. Prayer helps us to put into words exactly what is troubling us.
  2. Prayer gives us a sense of sharing our burdens, of not being alone.
  3. Prayer puts into force an active principle of doing. It’s a first step toward action.

~ Dale Carnegie, How To Stop Worrying And Start Living (1944)
