Push Through the Fear
LIMOR FRIED: We all have doubts and fears. I mean, we're human and it's normal and natural to be afraid, to be scared. You're building something, you're afraid of losing it. You're sometimes afraid of success. Sometimes that's even more terrifying. But sometimes you just have to get up and just do it every day anyways.
Failure is inevitable. One thing that helps me from taking the little disappointments or difficulties that come along the way of starting a business is just think, in six months from now am I going to care about this or not? And taking your brain and saying, OK put myself in the future and then look back, it sometimes helps give you that distance.
Because in the moment, you know, your skin is heating up and you're like freaking out, and eyes are boggling. Do you think in six months, you know, am I going to think about this or am I going to forget about it? And that kind of helps wash that emotional overload away.
