Depends if it involves life or death. We fear so many things that some live life not doing anything brave or worth wild. I hate using this reference but " You only live once" its true so don't be afraid to try something new.

Fear is a very useful emotion. It's Nature's way of stopping us from doing stupid things that could get us killed.
If it's something you MUST do, you will lessen the fear by learning as much as possible about it and by becoming as skilful as possible.
When I started competing in triathlon in 1982 I had to do a lot of open water swimming. I was a bit concerned about those big grey fish with the dorsal fins and sharp teeth. So I read everything the library had on sharks and filed them away in my mind as "small risk" . You could try something like that.
