<p>
People often ask me how they can get over their fears.
For example, they are scared to quit their job and start a business.
</p><p>
I think they want me to say something to make their fears go away.
So my advice is pretty disappointing.
</p><p>
We should pay attention to our fears.
They often have good reason.
</p><p>
<strong>
Instead of ignoring them, we need to address them.
</strong>
Break it down, and look deeper into what’s inside them.
<strong>
Address and mitigate the specifics.
</strong>
It usually means you need to learn a little more.
Look before you leap.
</p><p>
Always ask, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
Because sometimes the only problem was not realizing that the worst case scenario isn’t bad at all.
</p><p>
But don’t just tell yourself to get over it or ignore it.
