First of all you need to know you won’t die, even if you mess up. You may think you will but you won’t LOL.
Sometimes it helps to break down a task into a series of baby steps and do one at a time.
I think you already know this because you speak of picking up the phone and calling the lawyer as a task in itself.
Remember, they can’t jump through the phone and pull out your whistle. If you get too flustered you can always hang up. Say OH! The cat fell in the fish tank! I will have to call you back! and hang up.
Yes I am being a little bit silly but for a reason. I know how you feel. I feel the same way every time I try something new and I have been doing real estate for 30 years. The point is don’t take everything so serious, you won’t die, nothing bad will happen and if it does you can always come here and ask what to do.
I hope this helps you feel better.
Now go dial the phone. You can hang up as soon as they answer if you have to but go dial the phone NOW.
