Whether it's quitting your job, kissing a girl, or something else that's making knots in your stomach -- there's no magical technique. You have to free your mind and just go for it.
You will need
- Time limit
- Visualization techniques
- Breathing exercises
- Meditation (optional)
Step 1 Set a limit on worrying Set a time limit on worrying. For five minutes, focus hard on your fears and the worst possible outcomes you can imagine. Then, stop and move on.
Step 2 Visualize Motivate yourself by visualizing completing the desired action and imagining the positive feelings of relief and accomplishment you will have later.
Meditate and chant a positive mantra.
Step 3 Prepare Rehearse your actions in front of a mirror until you feel more confident.
Step 4 Release tension Be aware of the tension in your body. Focus on your breathing as you relax each of your muscles to release it.
Step 5 Take the first step Set things in motion by doing the simplest part first. No matter how big your task, remember that every journey begins with a single step.
