What kind of fear is it facing a wild animal out of cage, a madman with a knife or a gun or seeing a ghost sitting in your living room in the middle of the night..people pay to watch horror movies so they can get scared. If your are talking about facing or addressing a crowd, attending interviews those things can solved. I have never seen a ghost but i get spooked out through my own imagination especially after seeing a scary movie and i like reading ghost stories.
Guess we have to visualize the good that can happen instead of the bad! It always helps turn the negative into positive. Think of the best and it happens!
Boo! We like scary movies the same way we like scary roller coasters - give us a rush of dangers - yet still feel safe.
I keep repeating to myself in such stupid situations "screw it, lets do it !"
Learn everything you can possibly learn to gain knowledge that can help you to overcome it. With knowledge, comes power! Use it to your benefit.
Stop acknowleging the fear!
The more you accept it, the greater the foe it will become. Instead, minimize it and find where its limits are less than yours.
Take baby steps, but always make sure the steps are made. The better you get at this preparation, the greater the self confidence and readiness you need will become.
Fear can control you or you can control fear. Make your abilities superior to the fear and what it can do. Take control and do it!

I think the greatest or most significant deterrent to overcome fear is to truly convince yourself that death is not the end-all. Now if you have a fear of public speaking or something similar; then indeed face it after you have prepared and you will indeed quickly realize that the fear was an over-reaction or illogical issue...
Facing your own fear to overcome it.
I always believe that if someone else can do it, why not me? So, eventually I will overcome it with several attempts.

My biggest looming fear at the moment is playing the piano for church in two weeks. The only way I'm going to get over that is to practice, which I've been doing. I've come to the conclusion that all I can do is practice and do my best. Being prepared helps lesson the fear.
Hi, Midget38, I used to be a coward. Afraid of almost everything. Spiders, worms, leeches, thunder, under a night sky, ghosts, criminals, authority, judgments, failures, rejections, abandonment bla..bla..
It took much courage to overcome these things, since it wasn't only the squirmy, slimy, or apparitions but i was afraid about many things. As I grow older, I became braver. There was no one and there's only the fear and me. I had to help myself to overcome it. Face it upfront, refuse to budge even when my heart was doing a crazy beat and my legs were shaky.
And you guys better believe this, i stopped being afraid of ghosts through rage.I just got angry of the constant fear and my little one was affected. And many times act fearlessly in the midst of danger whenever a relative or friend is at risk. Love compels you to be. Perfect Love Casts away All Fears.
One technique that works for me is to rationalize or face the fear and ask yourself, "What is the worst that can happen?" I find that when you actually face the fear and actually work through the worst that can possibly happen, the fear loses its power over you.
Acknowldege your fear; and then activate your faith to conquer it.
Fear is the opposite of faith. I once heard this to describe F.A.I.T.H.:
Forsaking All I Trust Him.
Using that as a foundation , the answer would be to trust God to help you overcome any fear you encounter.
According to 2 Timothy 1:7 "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
When confronted by fear that lurks as an unknown enemy behind the door you are facing, the only option is to take a deep breath, brace yourself , grab God's hand and kick the door in with all your might!
