Fear vs. Reality

The fear of people is most times having no connection to reality.  According to Houston Chronicle May 2 1996,

People fear flying, yet they are more likely to choke to death than die on a commercial aircraft. 
They fear being stabbed by a total stranger but yet are twice as likely to be killed playing sport. 
They fear being killed by a shark, yet barnyard pigs kill more people than sharks do. 
They fear dying in a medical procedure but are sixteen times likely to die in a car accident than a medical procedure 
There is a scientific field of study called Psychoneuroimmunology, it is the Study of the mind and its effects on sickness and disease. Psychologists have now developed a profile of what they call the “hardy personality.” 
This is the man or woman who seems to respond positively and effectively to adversity and setbacks. He or she is optimistic and forward thinking. It seems that the more optimistic you are, the stronger and more resilient is your mind and body. As a result, you will have higher levels of energy and a quicker recovery rate from fatigue. You will seldom be ill for any reason. If you catch a cold or flu, which will be rare, you will bounce back quickly as the fortified t-cells in your body quickly counter attack and eradicate the infection that is causing it
Also in the Bible we see the story of David and Goliath, but while people saw Goliath as too big to kill David say him as too big too miss
Ralph Waldo Emerson said ‘Make a habit throughout your life of doing the things you fear. If you do the thing you fear, the death of fear is certain’
What are you afraid of…get rid of it!
