Fighting Fears with a Spatula

My aunt gave me a spatula and asked if I wanted to keep track of a skillet of pancakes.  Of course I wanted to, but I almost held back.  I was at a young people's pancake feast, and all my friends and peers were around. What if I kept on burning them?  What if I under-cooked them?  Ah, the Fear of Failure is such a common face.  Does it keep me from doing other things a little more important that flipping pancakes?
Sadly, it often has hindered me from stepping out of my comfort zone.  What do I do about it?  How can I change?  Maybe I should just take the spatula and just give it a try--or like I did today, step on the skateboard and let it fly away without me (but that's another story).
