9 Super Techniques to Overcome Your Performance Fear

1. Identify the Trigger

Firstly, it’s very important to learn about which situation or event occurrence triggers your emotion. For example, you become very nervous when your superior calls you for your performance review or when asked to make presentation in front of client. Be mindful about the various situations that you go through at work or personal life and observe in which situation your emotion of fear gets triggered. The more you practice the more you will learn about your internal fears and would be able to combat with it.

2. Perception v/s Reality

In majority of the cases, the problem with not performing or doing something is about the story which we have built in our minds. For example, if I will make mistake while speaking my mind in the meeting, people will laugh at me or if I ask some questions, they will consider me to be not so intelligent. In reality, nothing as such has happened with you personally, but you still do not attempt doing it based on the mind story you have created for yourself.

Thus, whenever you fear in attempting any task, ask yourself what story are you telling yourself for not attempting what you wish to do? Locate the facts from your whole story. Target only facts. Place your facts over your feelings.

3. Know Where Fear Lives in Your Body

Lot of times our body takes a physical toll due to fear. It affects different people in different ways. Identify how it is affecting in your body and take care of it. For example, if you hold stress in your back, you can learn stretches, foam rolling, etc. to avoid the pain.

4. Practice Gratitude

Practicing gratitude is the food for you soul. Expressing gratitude helps shift the mind into positive thinking which helps to overcome fear over the period of time. Everyday list out 3 to 4 things that happened very nice with you, viz-e-viz also write 3 to 4 things that you did good for other. No matter, how big or small they may be, just start journaling it. Once, in a week/month, pull out those two sheets and read about those wonderful things that happened to you and and what you did to others, you will learn practicing gratitude on frequently.

5. Listen to Your Inner Voice

Monitor your inner conversations Listen to your inner dialogue. Start your day with positive affirmation to yourself. If you wouldn’t say it to your best friend, don’t say it to yourself. Speak positively to yourself and remind yourself of your strengths.

6. Create New Association

Remind yourself that the feeling and the moment will pass. Focus on the positive outcome of the situation, rather than the scary in-between.

7. Look at the Glass Half Full

Perception is a very powerful thing, and how you feel about your situation dictates how you respond. So, think positively and you’ll give yourself a much better chance of success. This won’t happen overnight; practice with just one thought. What is one recurring negative/fearful thought you have? Work on reversing this one thought. Overtime, this will become a habit.

8. Practice Breathing Exercises

Breathing helps centre your body. You can do a grounding exercise, or even just take 5 deep, long breaths at any point to calm and center yourself. It is best to start your day with this, but feel free to practice all day long.

9. Create a Safe Space

When you feel safe and secure, there is no room for fear. Find somewhere safe you can retreat to when ill feelings begin- whether this is a real place such as playing with a child, listening to your favourite music piece, walking with confidence, or just going for a long drive. This sense of comfort will soothe you and allow you to face your fear.
