Home Business And The "Fight or Flight" Response

By Douglas Arias
Posted Tuesday, December 21, 2004

So, you have an idea for a home-based business. The road to success lies before you like an open highway waiting to carry you and your idea to the horizon and beyond. The light is green and the competition is taking off so why are you still sitting there with your foot on the brake, a white-knuckled grip on the wheel and, sweat rolling down your brow? Your only getting older, but you tell yourself “I’ll wait until I have more money” or “I should wait until I have more time”. The fact is, you’re scared! That’s right! You’re scared!

I know because I went through the same thing. You’ve told everyone your big plan and your afraid of looking like a fool if you fail. I’m right aren’t I? That’s why your still sitting there dreaming of working at home instead of making it happen.

Don’t feel bad. Fear is a natural response when failure is a real possibility. And it is.

You might fail! There! I said it and I have done it! I failed several times before finally finding something that I enjoy doing while making a small part-time income at the same time.

I currently operate an affiliate web site and I am happy with the progress I have made.

Was it easy?

No, it wasn’t. My wife was critical of the whole idea and I can’t blame her since all of my previous endeavors were doomed for failure from the start. Why?

Because they were scams!

Unfortunately, scams out number honest ideas and they don’t care if you’re a work at home mom or a work at home dad. They are “equal opportunity” employers.

However, because I failed several times, I learned how to recognize schemes before it was to late.

My point is, trial and error is just a part of the learning process. Without it, we would still be living in caves making funny noises and marveling at the concept of fire. Things will NOT always go according to plan. There will be times when you must stop, evaluate, and retrace your steps so that you get it right the next time around. Don’t set your goals in “concrete” allow for flexibility and you will get past them.

So, don’t let fear get in the way of your dreams. If you have critics, think of them as one more reason to succeed. Failure is always a possibility. Accept it and move on. If you dwell on it, you will never get started and ultimately, you will never know if you would have failed or succeeded.

There will never be a better time than RIGHT NOW. The light is still green so relax your grip, take your foot off the brake, and put the pedal to the floor. The competition has a small lead but don’t worry. With a little courage and determination, you’ll get where you want to go.
