Duke Ellington

It is reported that more than 90% of what we worry about never happens. That means that our negative worries have less than a 10% chance of being correct. If this is so, isnít being positive more realistic than being negative? Think about your own life. Iíll wager that most of what you worry about never happens. So are you being realistic when you worry all the time? No!
