Whenever you start a new venture, you might feel fear. It’s normal.

Millions of years ago, fear alerted us to physical danger and triggered a burst of adrenaline that helped us fight or run. Today, most dangers aren’t life-threatening, so fear signals us to stay alert and cautious.

We can feel fear but we move forward, anyway.

Think of fear as a 2-year-old who doesn’t want to go grocery shopping with you. You wouldn’t let a toddler run your life. You have to buy food, so you take the 2-year-old along. Likewise, you’ll just have to drag your fear along into your next venture.

Acknowledge that it exists, but don’t let it tie you down.

— Adapted from The Success Principles, Jack Canfield, HarperResource.
