‘I’m scared” the Zebra told the Owl in their weekly business consultation. “Well, fear is natural but don’t all it to affect you and your business. Remember, we worked together on a thorough business plan for 6 months and we continually study the industry so have done our homework now we just have to be patient and have faith that it will work out.
Lesson: This tip is from “18 Reasons Why Businesses Fail” by Nick Psaila. It was featured on Rescue a CEO. “Fear is eliminated through high levels of certainty. This is achieved through a combination of diligent research and faith. You need to tell yourself that rather than being a hostage to the outcome you can either: (1) Prosper from it or (2) Learn from it. There is nothing written in stone that will guarantee success.”
