Overcoming Fears

Peter McCWilliams, author of "You Can't Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought,"
agrees we should fear some things---drinking poisons, leaping off tall buildings, and situations in which our pyhsical body is in danger of extinction."All other fears--the ones we face every day--are illusions. They should be given no more credence than television commercials, election-year promises, or people who try to sell us flowers at airports."
Ninety five percent of the things we worry about never happen. "Worry is like a rocking chair...it gives us something to do but it doesn't get us anywhere.

How often in our lives do we make a bird in the bush out to be a bear? How we talk to ourselves determines how we feel.
