How do you overcome your fears? By making them familiar. I am no longer afraid of sewing but I am frustrated at the time it takes to get good.
I have been taking night classes, sewing at the factory on my lunch break, reading books at night and watching instructional videos on the weekends.
I wish I could wake up with the skill and understanding, but that is not the way the world works. We earn our talent through our commitments to cultivate with hours.
