Many wish to build online business, but many hold themselves to get started. Alternatively, if they do get started, they are no longer doing anything to build their business. They are not holding themselves accountable for the dream that they have. What they have is fear in business. Here are 5 signs that you have fear in business.
1. You wait to get started
Many wait to get started because of the following reasons:
I don’t want to lose my money. You need to make sacrifices in order to build your business. We spend money every day. However, you invest your money to build your business; this is the difference, and you must be accountable that you will work in your business.
I don’t know anything. Every skill can be learned. You are free to choose what skills you want to learn. You will become the Master once you learn and practice the skill until it becomes habit.
What inflicts business fear for newbie solo entrepreneurs? The wrong perceptions about business and the thought of working solo can cause insecurity for some people.

Hate Selling? You are not alone. I encountered with people who wish to make money online, but they don’t like selling. If you have this kind of feeling, it means that you have symptoms of fear in business. It isn’t your fault. We love buying, but we don’t want to be persuaded into buying.

How do you feel when you see successful people on the spotlight? You think that you will follow that path too. When you are actually trying to duplicate their success, it is pretty tough. You may start complaining that you don’t have enough skills, no knowledge, etc. The first thing that you need to do when you set your heart to be a solo entrepreneur is to develop emotional maturity, managing your business fear. Ask yourself if you have any fear of starting a business. Have you seen the iceberg? The 90% of iceberg part is invisible, submerged beneath the water. Your subconscious mind is like 90% of iceberg part. You accumulate past experiences in your subconscious mind, and it controls your actions and behaviors today. How can you change your old benefit or your mindset? You can’t change it overnight, but it will change gradually as you set to acquire a new belief. Here are my tips for solo entrepreneurs, how to deal with fear of starting a business:
Many don’t realize what is holding them back comes from their fear in the past. I did have an old belief that I was not good in selling, or I hate selling. I made a point that I wouldn’t involve myself into selling and marketing. I had rejections in the past. Would I give up selling and marketing?
If you see the iceberg in the picture, you will see that our subconscious mind (the iceberg part below the surface of the water) is bigger than our conscious mind. Subconscious mind is controlling our habits.
Address and heal our past experience first. Heal our hurt and break the habits in the past. Once you let go of old belief, start replacing with a new belief. Adopt positive affirmation to become your new belief so you will start to acquire new habits.
