How Highly Effective People Cope with Modern Fears

You need only turn on the television or read the headlines to see that fear and insecurity are plaguing our world. And who can blame us? Economic downturns, rising unemployment, disease, and the prospect of ‘losing it all’ have millions of people in a virtual panic. Yet, instead of pulling together in such a crisis, there is a rise in the ‘look out for #1’ mentality. Some call it selfishness. Others call it survival.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People helps us understand the reality of our situation: we’re not in this alone. To meet our goals and get where we want to go, we have to depend on others and we have to earn their trust so that they will depend on us in return. Many people don’t like to hear this at first, but once they delve into this book, they realize that there is real value in an interdependent mindset – especially in the trying times we’re now facing.stephen-covey-7-habits-of-highly-effective-people
