[...] to the point of confident[ly] tightrope walking [...]
I don't like the general approach though because if we go back to the tightrope analogy with someone afraid of heights, let us say we can somehow make them fake it. We can make them believe they're master acrobats capable of tightrope walking like a pro somehow -- enough to make them temporarily overcome their fears by inflating their ego. Then let's say they try it and there's a wind, the rope starts to wobble, and they fall and have a panic attack while the safety harness catches them. In that case, their confidence might be even worse than ever before. They might be right back to where they started or even worse, more afraid of trying and failing than ever before. So I would prefer to get them accustomed to the general idea of falling with a safety harness, perhaps starting from tightrope walking just a few feet off the ground, and gradually help them overcome that fear of heights.
Nicely put... again!
'guess someone has poisoned me with his pessimism'I wonder who might know who that is.. hmm? But actually you can also fake yourself till you make better outta yourself.. know what I mean?
