If you are really scared of something and you really want toface your fears take my advice. For example if you are scared ofthe dentist, don't be afraid and go in to the dentist room on yourown. If your parent or guardian keeps coming in with you it will bea habit that you will have for a long time.… If you arescared of heights, there has been something that has scared you anddisabled you from going to a height. It is 90% not likely that itwill happen again. Go onto a balcony and see there is nothing to bescared of. Gradually get higher everyday and it will certainlyhelp! ( Full Answer )
I don't think courage is "to win against fear", because sometimes the courageous don't win. I'd say it's more like "to stand against fear".
Many women never climax. Whether it's an actual inability or something else is another matter. Some male partners may not 'know their stuff' and/or some women may have been brought to believe that for a woman to enjoy sex is 'unladylike'.
Franklin D Roosevelt at his first inaugural speech. "The only thingwe have to fear, is fear itself!" Speaking of the depression andthe prospect of turning the U.S. economy around.

Sorry to say there is no specific fear for "a fear of lack of control." Loss of control is a symptom - that is to say - it describes what most phobics fear - a loss of control when confronted with whatever it is that scares them the most. Agoraphobia is most known as a fear of "leaving the home" …or being out in public. Agoraphobia, however, is one of the closest phobias associated with a fear of losing control. The home is seen as ultimate protection, while leaving the home is the fear of not having control of the outside environment. Of course the fear of lacking control can come at different times and in different ways for anyone that suffers from that particular type of anxiety. I, personally, don't have a problem leaving the confines of my house, but I would be lying if I said it was not more comfortable to stay at home because I have more control over what will happen to me - including limiting the embarrassment of having a panic attack in public.

First, I think that we should rewrite this quote with better punctuations to make it easier to understand: "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear." (Mark Twain) I think that "Courage is resistance to fear" means that it is sort of an antagonist to fear. That's …pretty straight forward... Then, "mastery of fear - not absence of fear" probably means that someone with courage will still have fear; it doesn't mean that he won't have or feel any fear, however he will use his courage to "master", control, and/or manage the fear and get passed it.

In dream, one idealizes love and romance so much that it is too good to be true. When a dreamer really gets a chance to love, his intelligent sub-conscious knows it is not going to be as good as it was in the dreams and hence wait for a "better person" or "better opportunity" . But one would find su…ch people would thoroughly enjoy one-night-stands as there is no need for continued emotional attachments. ( Full Answer )

The fear of Dogs is cynophobia.It is an ailment in people who feel insecure in presence of a dog as they may have experienced some earlier harm or attack .The only way to overcome this fear is to gradually come close to the to tame innocent creatures. Most are domesticated and when taken care of and… trained, they will not hurt or harm. If that's not convincing enough, here are some steps one can take to be more comfortable: 1.Google different types of dogs and their behaviors. Read and categorize the most to the least friendly. This way, one can know which ones one may want to avoid until ones courage builds up. 2.Take weekly walks around neighborhood, and if one sees any people walking their dogs, stay on the other side of the street. As one begins to feel more comfortable, slowly work ones way to where they are and see if one can make conversation with the owner while the dog is in the vicinity. 3.Ask a dog walker what kind of dog he/she is walking and if it's good around kids and any other essential questions one wants to know. Don't be afraid to tell the person about ones fear of dogs and one may want to keep a bit of a distance. Usually, a dog that's being walked is trained and will not bite. They may give a couple sniffs by ones feet and a bark or two, but it is not alarming as this is a typical greeting for a dog just as we say hello and shake hands. 4.Go to a pet store and look around for dogs. One can choose to talk to the pet store owner about the same things one did with the dog owner if it'll reassure about what dogs are very friendly towards people. (Remember these dogs are in glass kennels and couldn't get out on their own, so there's no need to be afraid.) 5.Start to ask the owner if one can pet the dog and do as directed. Keep repeating these weekly walks until ones fears are gone. ( Full Answer )
The only thing that could take down the United States was the United States itself. After suffering a major blow to the United States naval fleet and possibly compromising the Pacific front Roosevelt was trying to rally the States to join the war that had finally come knocking on their door. He knew… the U.S. could not be taken down from outside forces, only from the lack of faith or fear of "greater powers/threats" could the U.S. be beat. It was his way of saying "the only way we lose is if we beat ourselves." I disagree with the above answer. What war? Roosevelt made this famous speech in 1933, Germany didn't even invade Poland until 1939. Roosevelt is refering to the Great Depression when he said "the only thing to fear is fear itself", suggesting that the American People need confidence and optimism in those troubled times.

This is a pretty hard one. All people have courage of some kind and all of us lack courage at some time. I'm retired military and I have seen people do some pretty courageous things and then run like crazy at other times. Courage is more than standing up to a bully or running headling into a fight. …Some people are born with physical disabilities and manage to overcome them and even flourish. That is one type of courage. Others show their courage by just going to work day after day to provide for their families. Courage doesn't necessarily mean you are not afraid. Sometimes you can be very afraid and you will still do what you need to do to protect yourself or a loved one. Don't worry, when it really matters, you will have the courage you need. ( Full Answer )

Fear is a defense mechanism designed by our subconscious minds to optimize our safely.The things we fear most are death and pain; in order to keep our selves from experiencing death and pain our subconscious associate things that are potentially harm and dangerous as fearful. a commin example is fea…r of heights. most people that fear heights aren't scared of begin in the air, their afraid of falling and hurting (possibly killing) themselves. in order to over come your fears you must be able to rationalize the irrational fealling and justify its safety potential. another example is fear of the dark. there is nothing harmful or dangerous about being in the dark but so many people fear it. this is mainly because of some implemented idea from different movies and tales framing darkness as a place for bad things (like monsters, killers, rapists), its no wonder people are scared of it. but if you can rationalize the situation and realize that there are no rapist, monster, or mysterious killers in the room you shouldn't fear a thing.

Keep in mind you are giving people information. Think about how you accept information from others. If you enjoyed learning your subject, imagine how others would enjoy learning from you, almost like returning a favor. Know your subject well with facts, don't over prepare with intricate details.
