There are several aspects of becoming a successful Entrepreneur that you may be afraid of. Fear of "failure" for example.

And, it's absolutely OK to be afraid. As Susan Jeffers put it: "Feel the fear and do it anyway."

The more fear you have, the greater the courage it takes to overcome it. A courageous person isn't someone without any fear, it's a person that is terrified and feels the fear and does it anyway.

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."-- Christopher Reeve
Be courageous and take action in spite of your fear.

    Taking action in spite of being afraid is one of the greatest feelings you can face.

    When the illusion vanishes, you realize just how pointless being afraid and not doing anything about your fear really is.

    Well said, Jonathan.

    Easier said than done but I try to live by this everyday. I feel myself becoming bolder and braver everyday because I force myself to go outside of my comfort zone daily.

        I like to use fear as a resource, to sharpen my focus and help me be fully prepared to jump in with both feet.
