Suppose a person has a strong negative belief that whatever happens to his life is going to cause him a big turmoil.

Then this person interprets all events from the view of this belief. The result is a person who's constantly panic-stricken.

The next time some life event occurs in this person's life, and he/she automatically jumps to negative conclusions due to this belief, then what questions could I ask him so as to help him see that an event isn't as critical as he thinks it is?
