“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” ~Bill Cosby

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. Bill Cosby

The fear of failure is a sticking point of any business undertaking. So many great projects have not been implemented because of doubts of their authors. Do I have sufficient knowledge and experience? How to cope with all financial and organizational issues? Will my business be able to generate sustainable profits? How to build a professional website with my limited budget? What if customers don’t like my product? How can I get over the competitors? The questions and hesitations are countless!

Confidence, courage and an insatiable desire to succeed are needed to bring to life your business initiative. There are so many challenges on the way to success and plenty of entrepreneurs fail each year. The fear of failure sometimes become so overwhelming that we miss opportunities that could bring us success and prosperity. There are lots of dangers in the business world but there are also many unfounded fears based on lack of self-faith. There is a good portion of ventures that survive and thrive! All successful business of today were once small startups. Whether it is a Fortune 500 company, a popular online store or a trendy clothes shop, one day they were at the same starting point as you and had similar concerns. The founders of these companies did not let fears get in the way of their success. 

The people who succeed in business are the people who can manage their fear. If you are dreaming of starting your own business and have a good idea don’t let your fears hold you back. Believe in yourself, rationally evaluate your chances and go forward to reach your goals!


  1. It's very inspiring! Bill Cosby was a remarkable man and knew what he was talking about. Actually, there are many psychological techniques to overcome the fear of failure. One of them is embracing your mistakes. The way we think in great extent defines our success and motivation. Successful people do not consider that failure is the end of the world, on the contrary they see it as a lesson and a starting point for their next attempts.

    1. Yes! It is very inspiring. I like susses quotes. They make us more capable to overcome the failure.
