Sweat starts to drip, hands growing cold as you hover over the answer button. Every time the phone rings, it’s as if you’re walking into war. The same way knights wield swords and soldiers carry their guns, nobody should ever go to battle unarmed. Overcome that phone phobia properly equipped.
Practice Makes Confident
Soldiers go into training for target shooting and hand-to-hand combat. Don’t shy away from the next call you get and the one after that and so on and so forth. Treat each one as a learning session and apply your new-found knowledge to the future calls. Soon, you’ll be a pro without even knowing it.
Nobody actually sees you while you’re on the other side of the line, but slapping on a smile actually makes you sound like you’re happy to be of service. Take away the stress of your task by ditching that anxious expression.
Find The Root
How can you defeat something if you don’t have a proper understanding of what it is? Why can’t you pick up that phone? People have varied reasons as to what causes their anxiety. Once you know why only then can you truly start on how to get rid of your fear.
Different people face different phone battles. What’s important is that you acknowledge the problem and that you are willing to improve yourself.
