Is fear of the telephone common and is it possible to overcome it?
It is actually pretty common. All fears can be overcome, it just may take a while. I'm guessing by being afraid of the telephone you mean calling people for services or answering the phone. If this is the case, start off slow, talk to friends, order a pizza. Eventually you will get used to the idea. If your fear is of the telephone itself, get someone to put a telephone in the same room as you but keep it unplugged. Get used to seeing it everyday for a few weeks, then plug it in with the ringer off, after another few weeks try with the ringer on low and move up from there. Answer Think of it this way ... it's no different than using IM or email .. the person on the other end can't see you and most of the time doesn't know you. If someone calls and you start to feel uncomfortable just say someone is at the door or you have to call them back. As the above poster said it just takes time and practice. ANSWER It depends if you scared of the actual telephone or speaking ont the telephone. the speaking is eaiser to overcome but fear of the actuall phone can be overcome

Answer . Often fear can be overcome by learning more about the object that frightens you. For instance, I went to a class on snakes (film strips) and learned about poisonou…s vs. non poisonous snakes and information about their habitats. I went and saw them at the zoo. I have yet to handle one, but at least I can identify the ones that I should walk waaay around when I see them. Finally, the statistic that the people who get the most rattlesnake bites are male, young, and have been drinking was reassuring, since I do not fall into that group of people. Mostly snakes are shy and if you keep your distance, so will they.
if you are say scared of a spiders then buy a spider if you are scared of monsters then watch a scary movie or you can say to youself monsters are not real You overcome fear b…y at least tying to do the thing you are afraid of once to see if you like doing it. Then you can keep on trying to do it so you can get better at it if you liked it the first time. . \n. \nA fear is when you are scared of something. A phobia is when you are irrationnally scared of something (when you cannot explain why). \n \nFor that reason, a PHOBIA is harder to overcome.\nThe best way to overcome your fear is to confront what you are afraid of. To overcome a fear just slowly introduce yourself to the thing you're afraid of like I'm a textophobic I hate the feel of velvet but I'm now slowly reintroducing myself to it and I've devised a therapy plan and the final step is to wear something velvet and if I can do that then I'll no longer be textophobic Dont just face it my sis was once scared of mirrors because of "bloody mary" and the "candy man" and she needed someone with her to even step NEAR a mirror. so what i did was i would step right outside of the door to say the bathroom so that if "anything bad happened" i would come in quickly. eventually i just kind of made her go in by herself. all you need to do is do it a couple times. like if you are afraid of the dark or something in the dark then go up to the thing that is making you scared and touch it. that is what i made my sister do. i made her touch the mirror. and it worked!! hope this helped
Well that is kind of a confusing question since fear is an emotion too. Emotions are very important and actually, the more you have emotions the fuller your life will be. You… can feel happiness for little things such as watching birds and other clichÃ© things, the same thing is accurate for anger, love, fear and other emotions. To overcome the fear of it, you need to learn more about them, to observe them perhaps. The more you know about your emotions, the less you will fear them and the more you will get interested in them. Always remember that you can't control your emotions, but you can chose not to show them. Fun fact: You can't hate someone that you have never loved.
Use Australian Bush Flower Essences Emergency Essence put 7 drops in 16 oz of water and shake, then sip and wait a few minutes and get a little closer to the escalators, take …another sip and wait till you are calmer and keep advancing only if you feel comfortable. Best thing I found for fear problems. My dog was fearful for 6 years about children, running and making noise and tried lots of different things, training, homeopathy and other flower essences, but did nothing to help. But WOW the change in the dog I sprayed the Emergency Essence mist and within 15 minutes it was like turning off a switch and for the rest of the day she was find and was like my older dog and wandered around having NO fear.
Well sometimes just being around a sweet dog makes you love all dogs. Having a fear of dogs is ok but you shouldn't be afraid of dogs that have good owners
Seems to be a hard question to answer, sense It is personal. To overcome your fear, Just go for it. Think how awesome it would be to do tricks like the pro's. Do beginner tric…ks first, Like ollies and kickflips. They you can progress to better,and better tricks
Find a way to face your fear without facing the object of your fear. At first, that is. Unlike jumping into a pool of water to begin swimming, you must "familiarize" yourself …and "condition" yourself. Reference "Pavlov's dogs".
Realize that it is only a doll, and that it is a movie which has been intended to do so, and that there have never been any accounts upon which dolls have been known to be pos…sessed by serial killers.
You realise nothing could go wrong, everyone likes confidence. And if you ask them for their number, they might say no. But if you don't ask, it's a definant no, me, myself al…l though not that into talking or anything, asked a girl for her number as confidently as I could despite me being me and I got a yes. The whole thing turned out terribly and now we're not talking, but atleast I get a yes. Unfortunately that's all the advice I could give. I've only really gotten that one yes, I usually get a lot of no's
If you are healthy, then you have to trust your body and know the steps in doing a back spring. You should train your back to be flexible so then you probably don't have to j…ump too high to land on your hands.
Everyone becomes nervous before a performance, or even a speech. It helps you be animated. You overcome it, by walking on stage and doing just what you practiced. After a few …moments, you will be okay. As long as you know how to carry out the function you are supposed to carry out, you shouldn't have a problem.

To stop you being scared of something is to do it something with the thing that you are scared of. For example, you are scared of spiders. You have to go near the spider, or m…aybe take it in your hands. Be always close to the thing that you are scared of. One day you will be used to the thing that you are scared of, you won't be scared of it any more. You will understand and know all the things about it and you will know, why was you scared of it and why you shouldn't be scared any more. So, maybe you should go somewhere where is blood, just look at it and calm yourself down. Don't go and look somewhere, where is lots of blood, maybe just look at a finger your friend had cut? There are different ways that you can stop yourself being scared of blood, but I think that this is the best way, but probably not the easiest, because you have to look closely, or maybe even touch it, the thing that you are scared of, but this method helps! (I didn't copy and paste).
I would have to say just don't look and eat it like its anyother food. Also, you can look at the related question and extrapolate.

discuss delegation with staff first, point out each of their strengths and weaknesses and explain why you have chosen to delegate the specific tasks to the individual. don't w…orry about their reaction, they are paid to do what the manager tells them (within reason, of course) ;)
