Feeling Fear

by lyn christian on November 30, 2010

Fear is a part of owning your own business. It may never go away, not if you are growing and changing. Fear is a fact of life.

Some of the most common times we encounter fear as an entrepreneur is whenever you are facing something new, a.k.a. the unknown.

Knowing how to manage yourself well while facing fear is one of the most powerful skills you can have as a business owner and as a human being.

Some helpful hints would be to:

  • Realize that everyone feels fear when facing the unknown
  • Working your way through the fear by going through the unknown
  • Adopt the wisdom that dealing with a scary situation is far better than feeling scared and helpless.

Should you like more useful hints and an entire book on how to deal with fear, I recommend reading Feeling the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.
