How to Kill the Fears When Starting a Business: Part II

So you read how when one assumes “The Right business means success” is the actual starting point of all those fears. Let’s discuss a few more “false assumptions”.

“Afraid of uncertainty” Another big factor of people staying away from start-ups is the ambiguity that comes with it. But entrepreneurs respond differently. They accept it as something that is only for a short term. And the energy lies in the risk factor – when one sees the light at the end of the tunnel.

“Failure in business is the end of the world.” No one likes failure. Anyone who does? Entrepreneurs don’t like failure, they hate it! But they plan out methods to avoid that at the very least. An experienced entrepreneur sketches out his worst-case scenario, and accordingly makes his work-plan.

“Starting a business now can be ominous” That’s how many would-be entrepreneurs keep on postponing their plunge – until it becomes too late. A textbook entrepreneur says, “Now is the right time”… and sets off. He works out ways to make sure that the business keeps sailing. There are ways. Always.

Try doing this short exercise – Ask yourself that what is it that will take you one step closer to your dreams? You will get an answer! When you reach the next step, again ask yourself that same question – you again will get an answer! Regardless of how large or small that step or action is — just take it.

Here’s the icing on the cake – “Start by doing what’s necessary. Then do what’s possible. And suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

Hope you are already about to begin! Right?
