Interesting Post from Seth Godin’s Blog
“How do I get rid of the fear?”
Alas, this is the wrong question.
The only way to get rid of the fear is to stop doing things that might not work, to stop putting yourself out there, to stop doing work that matters.
No, the right question is, “How do I dance with the fear?”
Fear is not the enemy. Paralysis is the enemy.
This is interesting as many years ago, before I started my own business, I attended a start-up business event.
At this event there was a panel of business experts performing a Q&A.
As I had not yet started my business my question was “How do you manage the fear of failure?” to which the general response was “Just ignore it”.
However, Seth’s answer would have been slightly more helpful and inspiring. 🙂
