What is worry? It is simply an unhealthy and destructive mental habit. If you have it, you were not born with it: you acquire it. And since you can change any habit, you can cast worry from your mind.

In order to help you stop worrying, here are eight points, techniques that have proved helpful to other young people.

1. Say to yourself: "Worry is just very bad habit. I can change any habit with God's help.

2. You become a worrier by practising worry. You can become free of worry by practising the opposite and stronger habit of faith. With all the strength and perseverance you can command, start practising faith.

3. How do you practise faith? Every morning say out loud, "I believe." Say it three times.

4. Pray, using this formula: "I place this day in the God's hands. Whatever happens, if Iam in the God's hands is the God's will and it is good."

5. Practise saying something positive concerning everything. Do not talk negatively. Don't say, "This day's going to be tough." Say, "I am going to enjoy this day." Don't say, "I will never be able to do what I have to do today." Say, "With God's help I can do it."

6. Never take part in a worry conversation. A group of people talking pessimistically can infect person in the group. By talking things up rather than down you can drive away that depressing atmosphere and make everybody else feel hopeful and happy.

7. Cultivate friendships with hopeful people.

8. Every day conceive of yourself as living in partnership and companionship with God. Imagine Him walking by your side and saying, "I am with you always." Believe that you will never worry or be afraid.

To your success,
