Difficulties - do not enlarge them in advance

When you are faced with a problem or receive unpleasant news, observe your reactions. Right away, an entire internal mechanism is set in motion: you become anxious, you imagine the worst and, as a result, through no-one's fault but your own, what began as a small pebble becomes an enormous block in your mind and obstructs your path. In such circumstances, would it not be wiser for you to say: ‘Wait… maybe this is not so serious… things will work out.' In doing so, instead of blowing this event out of all proportion and being crushed even before things happen, you reinforce yourself. Why do you always expect things to turn out badly, and for the worst?
