A Powerful Strategy For Reducing Worry
Do you ever worry about doomsday predictions? The latest is the alleged December 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar doomsday prediction.
Astrophysicist Ian O’Neil, in an article at Doomsday Might be Wrong shows that the Mayans never actually predicted the end of the world.
Gathering information is a powerful strategy for overcoming worry. For example, the odds of being struck by lightning in a given year is only 1 in 775,000 according to the National Weather Service. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the odds of being killed in an airplane accident this year (for the average American) is about 1 in 11,000,000. When it comes to preventing worry, knowledge really is power.
