For starting out business owners, there is a lot of time, money and sacrifice put into the business. Depending on the business owner, there is one more ingredient that determines success or failure. One business owner could also put in fear. Fear is a natural emotion we put into our business because building a business is a major risk and it takes everything we have. On the chance that the business is successful, the returns and rewards are sweet and better than what we have put in. Unfortunately, however, fear is doubt and doubt has no place in a business.
Think of a business as a farm and the business owner as the farmer. What a farmer puts into his business, he is going to reap. What kind of farmer plants tomatoes and has no faith that it will produce? A stupid farmer; a farmer that is going to starve.
