Something I read once really helped me. It described fear as either hurtful or helpful. When you put off doing something because you feel incapable of doing it right, or you think you do not have enough time, or people have told you it is impossible to do…then you are exhibiting hurtful fear. This is fear that prevents you from accomplishing your goals. To remedy this, picture yourself a day, a week, a year, or ten years from now. Will you look back with regret for not accomplishing your goal? Will your life be worse off? This is helpful fear. People are motivated by two things: pain and pleasure. Will you feel pain in the future for not becoming physically active, or buying a house, or completing your senior project? Use this fear of pain to your advantage. Complete your tasks to their fullest. You may regret it later.
