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.

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.
