Overcoming fear

Fear often causes nervousness and stress, which can develop into more serious symptoms if not confronted. A way to combat fear is to evaluate it as if you are a coach or counselor giving advice. For example, tell yourself, "There is nothing wrong with being scared, but I must transform my fear into energy for my best performance."

Another way to conquer fear is to determine whether it is justified by listing your fear-causing assumptions. Delete those on the list that seem insignificant. Also, discuss your fear with a friend or mentor. Confiding in a compassionate person can help release anxiety so your fear does not become overwhelming.
