Fear of Failure

Do you have great, even world changing, ideas that are silenced by doubt?

Do you find yourself avoiding key steps in growing your business because you’re afraid to fail?

Ask most entrepreneurs, and they’ll tell you that the #1 fear that they have is the fear of failure.

For entrepreneurs, the fear of failure can play out in different ways:

  • You have a brilliant idea for a product or for the direction of your business. But you get too scared to make the leap to make it a reality.
  • You give a half hearted effort on a project because you think, “Hey..if it doesn’t work out..I can always tell myself that I didn’t work all that hard on it.”
  • Maybe you’ve read that stat: “90% of all small businesses fail within the first three years.” So now you act to avoid risk rather than plan for success.

The fear of failure stops many talented entrepreneurs from making a big impact in the world.

It wrecks havoc on sleep and does a number on our emotions and relationships.

On the other hand, imagine taking bold action despite fear.

Imagine that your self worth doesn’t swing up and down based on how your business is doing.

Imagine being “okay” if things don’t work out.

The purpose of counseling is to help you learn practical skills to stop the fear of failure from guiding your business and life decisions.
