Fear: “How do I get rid of the fear?”

Fear-is-a-liar-620x330

More often I get to hear entrepreneurs say: I want to start that business but I’m scared, I have been postponing to start my business but I’m terrified “what if I fail” what “if I don’t get money to feed my family.”

“How do I get rid of the fear?”

Alas, this is the wrong question.

The only way to get rid of the fear is to stop doing things that might not work, to stop putting yourself out there, to stop doing work that matters. Basically do nothing.

No, the right question is, “How do I dance with the fear?”

Fear is not the enemy. Paralysis is the enemy.
