What Every Business Owner Needs To Know About Fear

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Fear is a major stumbling block for many business owners. It causes them to make decisions, which seriously sabotage their chances of success.

The business implications of fear

Here are just some of the ways that fear changes the decisions and actions of small business owners:
  • It causes them to do what's safe, rather than do what's right.
  • It causes them to stay predictable, rather than express their unique worth.
  • It causes them to join a group, rather than lead a group.
  • It causes them to watch, rather than 'do'.
  • It causes them to look for excuses, rather than look for answers.
  • It causes them to set puny goals, rather than goals that inspire them.
  • It causes them to wonder 'what if it fails?', rather than 'what if it works?'
  • It causes them to blame others, rather than accept responsibility.
  • It causes them to prepare for failure, rather than plan for success.
Overcoming fear

Thankfully, the fears that stand between where we are and what we want to achieve, can be overcome. Once our fears are acknowledged, we can find and apply strategies to remove them.

NOTE: I give some tips and suggestions, in this article on overcoming fear, which I wrote on another site a few days ago.
