In the spirit of New Year's and making resolutions, here are 10 teen celebs who have successfully overcome their most difficult fears and phobias.

Nobody puts Bieber in a corner. Seriously, he'll get really freaked out -- the Biebs is afraid of small spaces! JB admits: "I'm a really claustrophobic person to begin with. I hate elevators, especially crammed elevators. I get really scared. So I think that it's very definitely scary when girls are all around me and I can't go anywhere. At the same time, I guess I got to get used to it, you know what I mean?"
