I Need Courage

please help me
I don't have the courage to do anything that I want to do. I cower under the covers for hours, surf the internet for instructional videos on overcoming common fears and stress, and endlessly procrastinate leaving my room. I feel like a prisoner in my own skin. What are some radical ways to overcome fear, obtain courage and do things that I want to do (without involving drinking rum) ?
