"Everyone, without exception, knows what fear feels like. We’ve all faced it at some point - in both, our professional and personal journeys. But here's the thing – what if we treated fear like it could be our ticket to something big? In my years in films and business, I've learned a thing or two about those scary moments. With time, I trained myself to treat fear like little signals that I’m standing on the edge of something great. It's almost like my mind telling me, 'Hey pay attention, something important is happening here!'" wrote Suniel Shetty in the post.

Further, he advised people to remind themselves that fear is not a bad thing, and to treat it like an opportunity to do their best.
