"Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee, ye I will help thee, ye I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
Fear is a crutch that handicaps our full potential to be or to do; it stems from a lack of knowledge - whether that be of repricussion, outcome, ability, or confidence. An acronym for FEAR that has always stuck with me and makes a lot of sense:
Basically, a preconcieved notion of everything negative that could result from a situation. To overcome fear we can train, better developing our fitness level, we can learn skills and increase our knowledge both which increase our overall ability. We can face things we are uncertain of repeatedly, putting ourselves in uncomfortable situations where we are unfamiliar, and work our way through - this increases confidence. And we can study the experiences and results of others who have undergone events that we fear and learn from their coping methods and outcomes. This week attack something you fear; be careful, learn what you can first, train and practice any skill required, build up your confidence by doing similar things and go committed.
