That isn't Tolle's. It's been said many ways before, like the Serenity Prayer written by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971) [1]:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

courage to change the things I can,

and wisdom to know the difference.

In addition, many people can't wish away anxiety. They have medical conditions that cause it. They need medical help, not platitudes.
