The fear – phobias are common in many conditions, especially in exams or when we face any critical condition. That is the time to look in and analyze individual. Jeanne Sharbuno, the author of “52 ways to live success”, says that normally we look the life from outside to inside – as “Having – Doing – Being”. The other way really to apply is inside to out side i.e. “Being – Doing – Having”. Be – you’re self what really you are. Know much your capabilities and what can you make unique. This introspection and clarity, you gat makes difference. Do – the way of style you adopt to complete the job, but it should be in meaningful way. In this stage touch the people with your act. Have – the fruit of the action you performed. A perfect oriented life enjoyment is in your hands. Where is the question of fear? Life is with - Just only success and Happiness.
