5. Get Support
When you do something alone, it's easy to get stuck inside your own head. The uncertainty, questions and fear of failure can be overwhelming when you don't have a support system to join you on your journey. Your support system could be a business partner, spouse, mentor, coach, friend or local networking group. As long as your support system boosts your confidence, helps you think objectively and cheers you on, you can often reduce the fear of failure because you know you are not alone.
Fear is not a bad thing. It can make you work harder, prepare more and enjoy your success fully. If you're starting a business and feel overcome by a fear of failure, trying letting go and embracing the challenge, and you may be surprised where it takes you.
