I would just like to remind everyone that former military test pilot, astronaut, and commander of the ISS, chris hadfield has a serious fear of heights but still spent over 5 months 370 km above the earth, perpetually falling back to the ground not because he was able to “face his fears” but because he worked to understand how everything he would interact with in the time worked, why it worked, and that it would not fail him. 
you don’t have to conquer your fears to do extraordinary things, but you do need to understand them.
