There are two words people, especially entrepreneurs, don’t say enough.
Instead, we use convenient cover stories to hide our fear. We say words like “I feel overwhelmed”, or “I’m too busy”, or “I’m not sure if I need this”.
Acknowledging their fear and dealing with it directly is a vital skill for anyone… but it’s especially valuable, and especially relevant if you are a business owner.
Developing that skill is a lifelong pursuit. But it starts with one simple realization…
Your fear loves you.
That’s right. Fear is a tool, and it’s meant to keep us safe. In the past, it helped our ancestors to survive countless dangers that a modern person doesn’t have to deal with on a daily basis.
Instead, we face non-lethal, but numerous dangers. Rude and uncooperative people. Depressing and scary news. Stereotypical Thanksgiving dinners where extended family reminds you why exactly you don’t talk to them for the rest of the year… All that good stuff.
As far as those “modern” threats go, uncertainty is one of the worst. Which is bad news for entrepreneurs – after all, it defines much of our environment!
Markets change. Companies spring up and vanish. Technology moves forward faster than you care to keep up. You are forced to make life-changing choices about yourself, your business and the people who work in it on a regular basis.
If you don’t master fear, you can’t be an effective entrepreneur.
