How overcoming fear can lead to success? Exposure therapy is one method for overcoming anxieties. In a safe setting, you gradually expose yourself to the things you are afraid of.

For example, you might be terrified of speaking in public and question, “Can I talk about what I like with some excellent friends in my own living room?” You’d be more eager to do this activity because it’s safe. Every step of the way, the exercise improves your confidence. “Can I do it even if there is one stranger in that group?” you can then question yourself.

The objective is to expand the comfort zone rather than remove it. Start with anything that makes you feel a bit uneasy and gradually increase your comfort level as your confidence rises.
