Taking risks is like a great opportunity to present yourself and stand out as a leader. You will get lots of good opportunities by taking a risk. But you have to take it in a positive way. If you view risk-taking in a negative way, then you will miss some great opportunities coming towards you.

Everyone wants to let their people up and to impress their loved once. We always expect from ourselves to meet everyone's request but if we talk about an entrepreneur. He has to choose his path. Raya Khashab said "Entrepreneurs have to focus on the things that matter to them. If they don't get passionate about their goals and dreams. It means they are letting themselves down".

5 – Fear that we are not good enough

Jean Case says ,Self-doubt can be a big challenge to overcome. One knows their flows better than anyone. "What if I am not good enough" becomes a deep fear. Such people believe that no matter how hard they work; they will always be doubtful for themselves. This behavior can lead to an unattainable level of perfection. An entrepreneur should not hold back their internal fears. They should use this feeling to pursue their goals.
