Feel fear/anxiety before.

Hello doctor. I am a guy with current age 20. I always feel fearful/anxious BEFORE doing anything. But when I face it, I handle situation much good & it also feels good and cheerful. This was happenning from my childhood and so I was always on back side or inactive in most case though I have good personality and knowledge. Now I understood this condition. But still I feel fear and sometimes it wins too. Most of the time I face the situation, when there is no option to face it. What should I do?? Is it fear or anxiety?? I feel fear when - When I hear that I want to do something, asking sir about anything, before social party or event, sometimes when my mom says go out and buy anything etc. When not - Exams, doing things (new too) I like, when I am in a confortable zone. My problem is with the intensity and always feeling it when there is no need to be.
