Elon Musk: Overcoming Anxiety / Fear

 Lesson from Elon Musk this morning on Twitter in reply to this question:

Q. (from @flcnhvy)If you’ve dealt with anxiety in your life (especially the physical symptoms of it like shaking, dizziness, feeling lightheaded etc) — what helped you the most in overcoming that?

A. (from @elonmusk)Accept worst case outcome & assign it a probability, which is usually very low. Now think of good things in life & assign them probabilities – many are certain!

Bringing anxiety/fear to the conscious mind saps it of limbic emotional strength. Cheery fatalism is very effective.
