When faced with obstacles (mostly that I’ve placed in the way of my own success), I’ve found solace in David J. Schwartz‘s quote that “action cures fear.”
However, I’m not sure what can cure this hodge-podge of irrational fears that I (with the help of some friends) have amassed to poke fun at our over-reactive, hyper-stimulated pysches. That, and they truly are our completely irrational fears.
One – Being in California when the next earthquake hits. It’s overdue.
Two – Not being able to watch the people who put your luggage on the plane do their jobs because they are more likely doing something far worse. They are just so sketchy looking. What? Don’t judge. Oh, wait.
Three – Being in a pool or jacuzzi by yourself and being pulled under and drowned by an invisible man. Watch the X-Files, much?
Four – If not in my car before I open the garage door then I open myself to an eminent zombie attack. Brain – 0; Zombies – 1.
Five – Catching a deadly disease at the airport and being the one responsible for the demise of the U.S. Hand sanitizer, anyone?
Six – A man falls from the sky and lands on you because he was a stowaway in a plane’s cargo bay and you, poor you, were just walking your dog when he, you know …
Seven – Driving over a still-lit cigarette that the car ahead of you threw out their window will result in your car exploding. Instantaneously.
What about you?
What are some of your irrational fears? Maybe you’ll find others who have the same fear as you! Share in the comments.
