Our fear response is largely unconscious, so the first thing you need to do is bring awareness to what the hell is happening. You have to question the basis for your fear.

What am I afraid of?

What triggered this fear?

What is the worst that can happen?

You may think these questions seem silly or obvious, but it's not about the complexity of the question, it's about unravelling the fear. It's about untangling it from our minds so that we can get control of it. The thing about fear is that it often makes us believe things that just aren't true.

For instance: I quit that job, therefore I am a quitter.

What am I actually afraid of? I'm afraid of not being good enough. I'm afraid of letting people down and not living up to my potential. Now that I understand this, I can use evidence to contradict my fear. It's also extremely beneficial to talk to others about your fears. Research indicates that just admitting what fears you have can help you get over them faster.

Dispute and reframe your fear into something that isn't a scary abstract beast. Break it apart into pieces that you can control by questioning and understanding it.
