I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

(Nelson Mandela, Anti-Apartheid Activist, Former President of South Africa and Nobel Peace Prize Winner)

One of the first things an individual has to do when he/she leaves the job to become an entrepreneur is to overcome and manage fear. The second thing that has to be done is to manage and control ones emotions. Remember, everyone's not the same and will react differently during adverse situations.
