Commonplace: Dale Carnegie

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."
--Dale Carnegie

(Too many people these days view the world of Dale Carnegie ironically, as though How to Win Friends and Influence People were the irrelevant product of a bygone world. Very little in that book will surprise you, but it is all just as true today as when he wrote it decades ago.)
