If you want to make the most of love, you need to do your homework! Try Dr. Laura Berman's weekly homework assignment, designed to help you improve your relationships—both in and out of bed.
What role is fear playing in your life right now? How is it holding you back? Is it directing your actions or inactions? Is it affecting your emotions? It's time to diffuse fear's power over your life, your relationships, your success and your happiness. When you feel anxiety, ask yourself, "Why am I afraid?" or "What belief do I have that created this fear?"
Once you identity the true root of your panic, smile at your fearful thoughts directly and stop allowing them to control you. By giving light to the circumstance and understanding that the source of your pain is based on a false idea in your mind rather than an actual event, you can take the power out of the fear and become the master of your life.
