Sharon Canfield Dorsey – The Other Ten Commandments

Spread the love
Sharon Canfield Dorsey
  1. Thou shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
  2. Thou shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
  3. Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one has yet succeeded in accomplishing this.
  4. Thou shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.
  5. Thou shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.
  6. Thou shall not borrow other people’s problems. They can better care for them.
  7. Thou shall not try to relive yesterday, for, good or ill, it is gone forever.
  8. Thou shall be a good listener, for only when you listen, do you hear ideas different from your own and grow in knowledge and acceptance.
  9. Thou shall not become “bogged down” by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.
  10. Thou shall count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.


BONUS COMMANDMENT…Thou shall love unconditionally.
