5 Common Fears Entrepreneurs Must Conquer
Fears should never be a barrier between you and your dreams! There are many fears that can emerge when deciding to begin your business. Many entrepreneurs face the same if not very similar fears when it comes to putting their dreams to action. Check out the top 5 fears entrepreneurs have and how to conquer them!
Fear of Takings Risks
Taking the leap to begin your dreams can be a scary thought when you think of all the risks you could be taking. There can be a risk in not being ready, a risk of success when something’s already been done! However, contemplating your dreams and not taking action for fear of taking risks calls for a dream to remain only that, a dream. Instead of focusing on the risks that can come about, think of the solution for each risk and how to overcome them. If you have found something you truly care for, a passion, then a risk is nothing compared to the amazing life and adventure your new business will bring you.
Fear of being Mediocre
When you come up with your business plan or have stormed up a dream, in comes the questioning of your own ability to pull this concept through. It’s normal to doubt yourself especially when you know you don’t have all the necessary knowledge before getting to work. Remember, you will never be fully knowledgeable in anything because there is always more to learn. That’s where the beauty is and that’s what you should focus on. Regardless of whether or not you are ready to make this business or product, you must start somewhere. Fear of being mediocre will keep you from ever advancing! Start the race against yourself now and put one foot forward towards success, that’s all it takes.
Fear Of Acceptance
In a world filled with criticism everywhere it can be a bit intimidating to share yourself and your business to the world. If your business or product is something that has already been done, remember that every single person has a unique touch. Not one mind or body is the same and that is where your power lies. People will always judge especially those things that are different. It is no reason however, to not conquer your dreams and tackle them head on. Do not let the fear of acceptance keep you from reaching your full and best potential.
Fear of the Unknown
Creating something and not having the “correct” result is fine. Making mistakes is fine, it’s normal and it is expected from every start-up company. Even companies with years of experience make mistakes! The great part of mistakes is that you can learn from them and fix them! With mistakes comes progress and progress brings profit! Your fear of not knowing whether your business or product will be 100% amazing the first time around stands no chance against those who are taking the leap, making mistakes and evolving their products.
Fear of Failing
The most common fear within the entrepreneurship community is the fear of failing. This is what keeps you at the edge of your seat and from even starting the game. Overthinking is a huge cause of fearing failure. We often make up crazy scenarios in which we could go wrong and we let it manifest into something so huge, it overshadows what we’ve been meant to do from the start: conquer our dreams. Conquer your fear of failing and watch as the process leads you to where you’ve always been meant to be.
