How to Overcome Your Fear of Starting Up a Business

Are you afraid of starting up a business?

Many people stick to their boring 9-to-5 jobs because they find security in them. Many of them dream of starting their own business, but they don’t. Why? They are AFRAID of losing the security of a job offers – the steady paycheck, the routine, etc.

Well, if FEAR rules your career, you won’t find success. It’s as simple as that.

If you acknowledge that you are living in fear – of anything – then listen to what Brendon Burchard, prolific author, trainer and public speaker, has got to say about fear: Most fear is just bad management of our own mental faculties – get over it!

In this video, Brendon explains what causes fear and how to overcome it. This is powerful – listen carefully:

Lessons learned: To overcome fear, we need to understand it. You need to change your mindset about your pains.

Question to self: “What if I fail?” Answer to self: “Well, what about doing what you need to do to discover whether I will fail or not?” The bottom line: Don’t focus on the outcome. Focus on the positive side of your question: “What happen if I didn’t try at all? What if I succeed?”

When it comes to the pursuit of success/happiness/wealth, it’s often not about the answers. It’s about the questions.

Ask the right questions, and chances are, you will find better answers to deal with your fear of starting up – or anything else in life.

  • If you are married and have business idea you believe in and don’t get support from your wife like when you show her what you are thinking and she doesn’t comment. What do you do just follow your dream or what?

    • Golden,

      I’d say that you need to continue to ‘sell’ your idea to your wife. I truly think that your success depends on how supportive your family is. True, that some family members are often dream killer. But it’s understandable, really. If you are your family’s only bread winner, when you failed, you drag everyone down with you.

      Again, continue to talk about your idea with your family and find a way to minimize the impact of failure – because, believe it or not, there’s a good chance that you will fail. This holds true for every entrepreneur out there.

      I hope this helps.
