1. Take baby steps toward your fear. You don't need to go on a parachute or to the edge of The grand Canyon the first day--just go on top of a small hill (or a glass elevator) and look down. You don't need to write the entire book this weekend--just take some time to make an outline.
2. Learn tools or processes that can help you dissolve your fear. There are many "shortcuts" out there-techniques that are effective at dissipating the fear on a deep level. One of my favorites is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also known as Tapping-see how to do that here:
Here's a global fears top ten:
1. Fear of public speaking (Glossophobia)
2. Fear of death (Necrophobia)
3. Fear of spiders (Arachnophobia)
4. Fear of darkness (Achluophobia)
5. Fear of heights (Acrophobia)
6. Fear of people or social situations (Sociophobia)
7. Fear of flying (Aerophobia)
8. Fear of open spaces (Agoraphobia)
9. Fear of thunder and lightning (Brontophobia)
10. Fear of confined spaces (Claustrophobia
Typically, EFT is facilitated with a practitioner for several sessions, while the individual is tapping on their own every day. EFT is especially effective when integrated with peak performance success coaching.
Clients are successfully guided to release fear and completely reverse phobias after only few sessions!

3. Make a commitment to yourself to keep moving toward that fear until you're on the other side. Find a buddy and/or a coach to help support you. Tell your buddy what your commitment is and ask him or her to stick by you through your process.

EFT is always blowing my mind. 'Cause it
I was skeptical before I learned it- and am amazed at how powerfully effective it is with each personal or client application to release negative energy and create new positive emotions that result in action around issues that have been "stuck". I can do "surrogate tapping" with you on the phone - or without you at all- like "long distance Reiki", etc. Just ask :) EFT is like yoga for the emotions! It involves you gently tapping on stress relief points of the body while I implement powerful language. It provides relief from physical and emotional pain, and any trauma or beliefs that have been blocking your truth. Do you feel the weight of all the 'shoulds' on your shoulders? Do you sometimes wish, 'If only I could be who I really am?' If you would like to access your own guidance and wisdom instead of seeking truth about yourself from other people or sources, you can learn to use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to help dissolve whatever is in the way.
When you are ready for
action and a
circumstance occurs so that you experience confusion or fear what
do you do? Freeze..nothing probably, that's human nature.
Even though it may be the polarity of what you want to do when
you are ready for action, this is prime time to take stock and do
inner work in order to move past blocks and make fabulous, free
Writer's block, for instance, is often a matter of too much distraction. Perhaps it's about needing fresh ideas, or being "sure of yourself", confident that what you write will resonate with your readers. Procrastination is always fear based. Before you can move forward, it's important to know which kind(s) of fear you're facing- that's the intitial inner work- is it fear of failure, being judged, fear of success (yes, success can take you to new scary places..) or of being controlled.
Once you've gotten the "fear factor" figured out, sometimes with assistance of a coach, then it's time to have a few guided EFT sessions. My facilitation of The EFT Technique has been 100% effective in my four years as an EFT-ADV practitioner combining the EFT Technique with Peak Performance Success Coaching. This includes conquering fear of public speaking, which is the number one fear in our society. phobias and procrastination. Immediately following an EFT session using Gary Craig's short EFT Technique form, I facilitate a deep guided relaxation-visualization session to reinforce the tapping, intuitive coach-like language and positive emotional transitions that have occurred.

EFT HAS ACHIEVED AN "EVIDENCE BASED" STATUS, BUT IS YET TO BE APPROVED BY THE APA
What I learned from colleagues is that while the APA does recognize that EFT is evidence based (after their review of 50 research studies)they are still looking at it before rendering any definitive decision on whether they will actually accept it. In the meanwhile, they do not give credit to any psychologists who seek continuing education credits for taking courses in it. I actually believe this is a good thing for now, since they might otherwise try to regulate it and retain it just for psychologists, when it was intended to be a lay technique used by everyone.
