Nefzi, (2018), highlights how fear can be linked to risk aversion in entrepreneurs. Studies have also indicated similar for salespeople.
Creating new powerful habits and taking risks are important so we can evolve with today’s uncertain challenges.

Conclusion – fear and how we perceive our abilities can cause us to procrastinate and miss opportunities
