Thanks for pointing this out. While I can still act in spite of significant odds, I am known to be very self-conscious and it's troublesome in my day-to-day life.

What I've found over the years that works best in beating your shortcomings is to come to terms with them. Simply recognizing the symptoms like you've listed a above helps.

What techniques do you use to overcome fear?

Cheers,
Anh
