Let's Try To Overcome The "Fear of Failure"

Oct 17, 2023

Being a business owner can automatically trigger uncertainty, regardless of your excitement for new ideas, services, expansion or processes. Natural wariness of risk can overshadow potential gains. Embrace this discomfort; it harbors lessons, skills, connections and new avenues. How can you reduce risk and gain confidence?

Reducing the Risk

I could’ve been terrified when 3km into the bush (no vehicle or place to hide) we came upon the Cheetah we were looking for. I was with an expert “Cheetah whisperer” who guided me on how to react and got this once-in-a-lifetime picture.

In this same way, instead of paralysis, identify ways YOU can mitigate risks by seeking solutions to minimize potential obstacles. Look for an expert in the field. It saves you time and expense in the long run. They have the skills you lack, which is why they are the experts! Consulting seasoned individuals can provide insights, strategies and a more precise roadmap ahead. 

Learning from Nature: Flight vs. Fight


Nature's "flight vs. fight" response teaches a valuable lesson. Just as I once encountered a group of elephants in Africa while descending my daughter's office steps, unexpected challenges can emerge. Navigating risky animal encounters through training highlights adaptability and preparedness, traits that define success. Similarly, the business world's unforeseen hurdles can be overcome with determination, readiness and knowledge.
