Outside Your Circle Of Influence

I have found there are actually very few things worth worrying about in times of distress. Focus your entire attention on the things you can influence. Don't worry about things you can not do anything about. The classical serenity prayer, commonly used by AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) comes to mind: "Grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."
