In this video, Jemima considers bariatric surgery because she concedes that she cannot do it on her own. Find out more as she counts the cost of selling out.
Is selling out an option? Of course! But it may not be the best choice as there are unpleasant consequences. In the book, “How to stop worrying and start living (first published in 1948)”, Dale Carnegie advocated the following timeless advice for managing our problems:
- Imagine, what is the worst thing that can happen to you? Get a pen and paper and write it down. Get clarity on exactly what you are afraid of.
- Now, mentally and emotionally accept the worst. Once you accept the worst, anything else is bonus.

- With this plan, go right into action. The magic is in moving swiftly into action. No one climbs a mountain looking at it. Click on the following link for more http://www.westegg.com/unmaintained/carnegie/stop-worry.html
