Are you afraid? ..of spiders, commitment, death or Nicholas Cage? Does the picture above make you tingle? You can become fearless and that is a superpower plus it ups your cool factor an insane amount.
Pretending you´re someone else relieves the pressure. Bring out your acting skills to seperate yourself from the situation, like Beyonce in the elevator. We wonder if that was her or Shasha Fierce. If it all goes bad blame that person but not out loud, then you might seem scitzofrenic. Making up the name is half the fun.

Think Of What You Have Achieved
Replay all the cool things you´ve already done like a trailer in your mind. You walking away from explosions or jumping out of planes. Pepp talking is one of the best ways to stay positive in the face of fear and works as an awesome confidence boost.
What Is The Best That Could Happen
You don´t want to be thinking about what can go wrong when doing what you fear. Think of what could go right and how you will celebrate when it does. Also imagine how proud you will be having overcome the monster of an obstacle that is fear.
You can´t win the game if you don´t enter the race. Take deep breaths and grab the bull by the horns. You really cannot overcome it unless you actually do it. It is as simple as that.
Figuring out what meaning you have in this world exhilarates you and gives you confidence. Putting your focus on a cause or those you´re helping means removing yourself from the situation. Clear your mind and see the bigger picture. You do what you do because of a reason and that reason will take away any insecurity.
What would you do if you knew you could not fail, now go out and do it!
