“Our life is what our thoughts make it” are the magic eight words to battle worry and solve our problems as summed up by the great Roman Ruler and Philosopher, Marcus Aurelius. The magic eight words are taken from the personal diary of Marcus Aurelius published as one of the best books on personal development and philosophy Meditations.

Dale Carnegie has described these eight words to transform the life of every individual while solving problems no matter personal or professional in his book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living? Dale Carnegie has listed a self-development program as a comprehensive framework to apply the eight-word magic entitled Just for Today. Dale Carnegie has emphasized that every individual who is being the victim of worry must paste the following 10 points on the bathroom mirror to overcome the problems and live a life applying the golden rule; “Our life is what our thoughts make it”

  1. Just for Today, I will be happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true, that most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be. Happiness is from within; it is not a matter of externals.
  2. Just for Today, I will try to adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will make family, my business, and my luck as they come and fit to myself t, o them.
  3. Just for Today, I will take care of my body. I will exercise it, care for it, nourish it, not abuse it nor neglect it, so that it will be a perfect machine for my bidding.
  4. Just for Today, I will try to strengthen my mind. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought, and concentration.
  5. Just for Today, I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn and not get found it. I will do at least two things I don’t want to do just for exercise.
  6. Just for Today, I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress as becomingly as possible, talk low, act courteously, be liberal with praise, criticize not at all, not find fault with anything and not try to regulate nor improve anyone.
  7. Just for Today, I will try to live through this day only, not to tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them for a lifetime.
  8. Just for Today, I will have a program. I will write down what I expect to do every hour. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. It will eliminate two pests, hurry and indecision.
  9. Just for Today, I will have a quiet half-hour all by myself and relax. In this half-hour sometimes I will think of God, so as to get a little more perspective into my life.
  10. Just for Today, I will be unafraid, especially I will not be afraid to be happy, to enjoy what is beautiful, to love, and to believe that those I love, love me.

The above-mentioned points can be referred to as the blueprint to apply the eight words formula wisely recommended by Marcus Aurelius it would allow individuals to overcome worry, indecision, hurry, and fear.
