Everyone have fears and phobias, and sometimes it is really difficult to overcome these. Fears and phobias are not hereditary; they are acquired throughout life by the association of scary experience with an object or situation particular. Also, they can be purchased to avoid confront a feared object or situation. Happily, there exist some steps to overcome these fears and phobias.
The first step is identified and assumes that you have a fear. It is easier when you define it because you can attack directly the problem, and exposes to phobias or fears gradually. Also the recognition of past incidents as possible causes of the emergence of the phobia or fears can help you to understand that there is nothing to fear.
After that, you have to understand your fear. Clinical psychologists often use a dual focus therapy to treat fears: first, addressing the thoughts and attitudes about what makes you afraid, and, secondly, to combat the physical response to what is feared. The therapy tried to show that if you face what cause panic, there would not be any damage.
The third step is crucial; you must face the fear or phobia face to face. One technique, knowing as “Modelado”, consists of observe and spend time with someone who regularly deal with that we are afraid. With regular practice, you can overcome you fear as soon as you realize that there is not something to be fear, or it is something that you can control.
Last, remember that you need to expose yourself and face the fear gradually, but it can be worst. Never take more that you can hadle.
In resume, fears and phobias are not hereditary, they are acquired throughout life but always we have the possibility to overcome it. There exist steps and therapies that might help you

Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders and is one of the most common specific types of phobias. A phobia is defined as a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it. Phobias are mainly and tend to be caused by a traumatic event or experience that happened prior in a person’s life. No one knows exactly where arachnophobia comes from but there are many different theories on how it has developed based on evolution but with some of those theories come discrepancies.
One of the most common theories was put forth by evolutionary psychologists. The view suggests that arachnophobia was a survival technique for our ancestors. Since most spiders are venomous, even though most do not pose a threat to humans, a fear of spiders could have made humans more likely to survive and reproduce. Other psychologists argue that arachnophobia is likely based on cultural beliefs about the nature of spiders since phobias of larger more dangerous animals are not common. It was once believed that spiders were the cause of the bubonic plague. “In many areas of Europe, the spider appears to have been a suitable target for the displaced anxieties caused by these constant epidemics; in other cases, its proximity to the real causes of the epidemics may have fostered opportunistic associations between spiders and disease. These misplaced cultural...

How to Overcome a Challenging Obstacle in Your Everyday Living.
Overcoming a struggle is normal for everyone. People should not be ashamed of what they are not good at; we have to look at the fact that each individual is not going to become good at anything so easily like we want it to be. It is always good for a person that wants to really learn something they believe they will be become stronger at. It takes take time and patience. I personally believe for the individuals that are the ones that can’t accept the fact when someone makes a mistake they are not understandable. Dealing with difficult people is very common in life, sometimes we have to figure out and understand the ones who tries to criticize others-what makes them behave the way they do. I think being assertive is always the right thing to do. I’m going to discuss what Sedaris’s obstacles in this essay were and also discuss more about my few obstacles that was related to Sedaris, personally.
Reading what David Sedaris was going through in the essay he wrote, called “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” the one thing I can relate to that is that I know how it definitely feels to think that you are so alone in a new environment redundant....
Now, your life will probably never be stress-free — I don’t think that’s even desirable, even if it is possible, because stress is something that challenges us and helps us grow at a reasonable level. But when stress gets too high, it causes us to be unhappy and unhealthy.
It wasn’t that long ago when I was working long hours in a very stressful job, with little time for my family. I had a lot of debt and too many bills. I was unhappy and stressed out all the time.
So I made some drastic changes. I quit my job. I simplified my life. I started exercising and eating healthier. I began to eliminate my debt. And I learned some habits that, when applied on a daily basis, can really transform the way you live, in a positive way.
How did I do all of this? One thing at a time. I didn’t do a major overhaul of my life. I changed one habit a month, and gradually over the course of a year or two changed a lot of things in my life.
I won’t guarantee that all of these will work for you. They worked for me, but each person is different. Pick and choose the ones that will work best for you, and give them a try. One at a time.
1. One thing at a time. This is the simplest and best way to start reducing your stress, and you can start today. Right now. Focus as much as possible on doing one thing at a time. Clear your desk of distractions. Pick something to work on. Need to write a report? Do only that. Remove distractions such as phones and email...
...Nine Strategies Successful People Use to Overcome Stress
Heidi Grant Halvorson
Feeling stressed? Of course you are. You have too much on your plate, deadlines are looming, and people are counting on you. You are under a lot of pressure—so much that at times, you suspect the quality of your work suffers for it. This is life in the modern workplace. The difference between those who are successful and those who aren't is not whether or not you suffer from stress, buthow you deal with it when you do.
In the spirit of Nine Things Successful People Do Differently, here are nine scientifically-proven strategies for defeating stress whenever it strikes.
Self-compassion is, in essence, cutting yourself some slack. It's being willing to look at your mistakes or failures with kindness and understanding—without harsh criticism or defensiveness. Studies show that people who are self-compassionate are happier, more optimistic, and less anxious and depressed. That's probably not surprising. But here's the kicker: they are more successful, too. Most of us believe that we need to be hard on ourselves to perform at our best, but it turns out that's 100 percent wrong. A dose of self-compassion when things are at their most difficult can reduce your stress and improve your performance, by making it easier to learn from your mistakes. So remember that to err is human, and give yourself a break.
