Everyone is scared. You are not the only one.
The millionaire is scared of losing his millions. The job-holder of losing his job. The businessman of making losses.
The salesman, of not meeting his targets. The H.R. guy of recruiting the wrong people. The production manager, of his machines failing. The speaker, of not connecting with his audience. The fisherman of not catching fish.
The husband of his wife. The wife, of her in-laws. Both, of their kids’ demands, or their behavior, or their future.
So how do you overcome fear?
There are, in my view, three primary ways to do it.
1. Distract Yourself. Watch movies, browse the net, read books, or gossip.
2. Get analytical, analyse each fear and work out a specific antidote for each.
3. Decide not to fear anything. Tough, but effective.
