Approach anxiety's one of those things you've just got to steamroll
through, especially when you're very new. You've just got to willpower
up. You've got to be angry at yourself for not approaching. You've got
to be more terrified of failing to approach and NEVER getting good with
women than you are of a girl not being interested in you. You've got to

If you're just not getting anything done consistently, you need to
set everything up you possibly can to get you taking the first step.
Get two of your buddies and give them each a seriously large amount of
money for you and tell them they're coming out with you and you have to
approach at least three (3) girls - doesn't matter what happens, they
can scream at you and tell you to get away for all you care - and if
you don't do it, the money is theirs and they are NOT allowed to give
it back to you under any circumstances.
You've just got to make the circumstances so punishing if you don't
at least go say "hi" that you'll finally grab your balls and go do it.
Once you've done it, and you realized none of the girls you approached
pulled out samurai swords and cut your hands off for talking to them,
it takes progressively less pushing to get yourself to go do it.
I'd also suggest having a look through these articles:
... but ultimately, if you're just unable, get SOMEONE who's going
to come with you and be a true friend and force you to do it no matter
what, and not let you walk out of there until you have.
