Obstacles to Your Business Dream?

Owning Your Own Business - Complete Controller

Starting their own business is a dream many people wish could come true. Although most people think the lack of resources, a challenging market, or some other significant factor stops them from starting their own business, the truth is that fear of failure is the most common reason most don’t. The only thing that can hinder you from starting your business is YOU!

It is because entrepreneurship begins with taking calculated risks, accepting responsibility, and striving to turn the idea into reality. Until and unless you do not take a smart risk, you cannot initiate a business.

There is no perfect or ideal time for starting your business. Instead, you have to find the time to create it regardless. You don’t need permission from anyone. You are the only obstacle standing between your idea and its fulfillment. You are the only person who can turn your idea into reality and build your desired business.Cubicle to Cloud virtual business

Consequently, there is no reason to wait for someone else to start your business, such as a digital agency, bookkeeping or taxation firm, bookstore, real estate company, or photo studio. Here are the five most common yet biggest fears most people face that they must overcome to effectively land on the road to entrepreneurship.

Fear of Failure

According to psychologists and mind experts, the fear of failure is more bitter and unbearable than the loss of autonomy and the fear of separation. It is one of the leading factors stopping you from starting your business. 

To overcome this fear, you have to redefine the meaning of success. You must realize that a decent job with handsome pay and so-called financial security with employment is not the definition of success. Instead, chasing your dreams and achieving your goals is a real success. Once you realize it, you will begin working towards your dream instantly.


A voice in your head may repeatedly tell you that no one would take your idea seriously. Instead, your idea is a poor thought that can barely produce fruitful results. The voice may also reassure you that your current job is necessary, at least for now.  ADP. Payroll – HR – Benefits

To conquer the fear of inadequacy, spend time with naturally confident entrepreneurs and go through their past and present successful biographies, telling you how they transcended their worries. Successful entrepreneurs think of success, networking, and confidence instead of inadequacy, insecurity, and unworthiness, common with others who only dream of having a business. Once you realize the truth, your fear of inadequacy will diminish; thus, starting your business will become easier.


The fear of ridicule and rejection can be more damaging than the fear of failure. Anxiety about what others will think and how you could be embarrassed is another factor stopping you from starting your business.

Once you start taking steps towards initiating your business, you will be surprised to see that people will incredibly encourage and support you. They will appreciate your ideas and efforts instead of criticizing you for your bold steps. Also, many people will rally to join your venture.


Poverty is another big fear stopping you from starting your business, especially with individuals who have grown up in a low-income family and worry that they will stay poor if they do not have a secure job. For them, compromising on the job is like inviting poverty into their life.LastPass – Family or Org Password Vault

To overcome the fear of poverty, you must realize that you must sacrifice something to ‘gain’ something. A closed fist cannot hold anything. It would be best if you opened your palm to get anything special.


The self-contemplated sense of separation from your resources and even very close relationships for working towards your dreams is another factor stopping you from becoming an entrepreneur. On the contrary, starting your business begins with taking the first step alone, and you will find many others following in your footsteps.

Remember, even if your first
 attempt to fulfill your dream fails, you will know who your real friends are and see the true face of life. Once you know who is always with you, equally in your good times and bad times, it will help you fulfill your dream. With that in mind, take the first step!
