Fear. I think there’s lots of this stuff floating around lately.
Personally, I feel that most of our current economic woes can be tied directly to “fear of the unknown” and “fear of the different”. When the politicians in Washington want the economy to recover, they’ll delay making changes that will forever alter society as we know it, until we’re all comfortably back in business (but that is an entirely different post for an entirely different blog).
Fear can be paralyzing and debilitating. In the business world, fear is the enemy. Fear is the one thing that stands between you and your most successful future. That’s it… fear.
The most successful organizations in history were created by people who pushed past the fear, stared down the risk and took a running leap of faith in their own ideas. Google. Microsoft. Nike. Walmart. Even the United States of America. All built by fearless leaders.
What are your fears? What is standing between you and your greatest success? (Hint: It’s not the economy stupid.)
