The Power of FEAR

Why is it that so many people SAY they want to operate their own business, but then fail to take any action when required to do so? Fear. Pure and simple. They’re afraid. Afraid of failure. Afraid of losing money.Financial Worries? Lose those worries by adding a second paycheck! Afraid of what others may think. Afraid of having to alter their lifestyle to accommodate their new venture. Afraid of all SORTS of things. Well, here’s a fact that may surprise many of you who find yourself thinking, “That describes me perfectly. Wish I were unafraid, like the people who have already begun a business of their own.” Do you think those of us who own our own businesses AREN’T AFRAID? Don’t kid yourself. Those of us who operate our own businesses go through the same mental anguish that the fence sitters do. We’re afraid of the very same things. So what makes it possible for us to put the FEAR aside and go on to do what needs to be done in order to achieve our dreams of entrepreneurial freedom? Simply this – The PAIN of being tied down to a job that we hated and being unhappy with our present situation was greater than the FEAR of failure. When you get to that point in your life, you will KNOW. You will KNOW that you have no other choice but to take action. To stop finding all sorts of excuses why you can’t think about doing anything until tomorrow. Or until next week. Or next month. Or next year. Have YOU reached that point yet?
