Find Out What You're Afraid of
Perhaps Franklin D. Roosevelt said it best: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Wehrenberg concurs: "Some people are afraid of crashing, but more people are afraid of having a panic attack on the plane. So what they're really afraid of is being afraid. 'What is the catastrophe? What do I actually think will happen? What am I making a big deal out of? If I panic, what am I afraid will happen?' Answer these questions before you get on the plane.
"When I'm working with my clients I tend to try to lighten up the catastrophe. Usually what they are afraid of is not going to happen anyway. Making a fool out of yourself is not the worst thing that will happen. It will pass."
