Entrepreneurship can be an emotional rollercoaster. Some days are filled with joy, happiness, excitement, and enthusiasm. Others can be filled with worry, fear, or a lack of motivation. Sometimes, we can experience all of these feelings and emotions from one hour to the next! Many new entrepreneurs resist getting started or launching their great idea out of fear of failing. This fear can paralyze you – stop you in your tracks and fill your mind with negativity, self-doubt, and limiting beliefs. It can prevent you from stepping out of your comfort zone and achieving the success you desire.
In this episode, I share how I gain inspiration and motivation from Erin Hanson’s poem, “What If I Fall?”. I explain how fear and the “lizard brain” prevent you from growing as an entrepreneur, the importance of facing your fear of failure, and how facing your fears can help build your self-confidence. l also share the steps you can take to make daily progress to overcome your fears and how to use your mistakes and failures as an opportunity to learn and grow professionally and personally.
