Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
Fear is necessary for our survival. It keeps us close to our mother when we are young. It makes us run faster when we are chased by a barking dog. Fear triggers the adrenal gland and gives us an edge when our safety depends on it.
However, our body can lie to us. Fear can grip us and tell us that we are in danger when we simply need to talk to someone. Fear can keep us from moving forward in situations that are perfectly safe.
If fear is keeping you from doing the things you need to do to grow your business, I suggest reading The Five Second Rule.
