Whether it’s a job interview or a major presentation before potential clients, there are many situations where fear can take the better of us.

Fortunately, there are steps we can take to mentally and emotionally prepare our minds for the various challenges that appear. Because fear can compromise our ability to work efficiently and productively, it’s crucial to understand how we can fight fear and win.

1. Learn to Breathe
