Hi, Peter.

Few of the biggest fear of employees are getting fired, embarrassment, underperformance, rejection, isolation, communication.

I had a problem with communication when I joined my first company. I would communicate with the manager and a teammate of mine. I had a casual conversation with other teammates if required or when needed help. I overcame the problem by taking the initiative to talk to colleagues whenever I found the time. Similarly, many employees fear a lot more problems in their career. For example - underperformance, when team members performance is evaluated after certain time and being last would feel discouraged and lose confidence at the same time would take it as a challenge to overcome it.

My biggest fear till date is embarrassment due to underperformance. I like to finish chores assigned to me within the deadline and quality of work upto the mark.

Hey Peter, I am an experienced professional and have been working in IT for 10 years now. And trust me this is the most legitimate thing anyone can feel. When I joined my first company, I had a fear of not being able to complete the assigned task in given time or writing code which would throw a lot of bugs. Then many seniors, especially one of my mentor suggested me to keep working and learn every time from my mistakes. He motivated me to finish off my work in given deadlines and tells me what to do or how to avoid doing some mistakes whenever some bugs come out of my code.

I hope you can also take help or guidance from your seniors for the fears you have. All the best.

I started off as a tech support guy. Honestly, that feild doesn't have much growth. I worked there for 2 years and then became a team lead. My work was the same old.

My biggest fear is to become stagnant or not grow. I never want to stop growing. I switched my job profile completely, took up a job as a digital marketer in a startup. It pays comparatively less but that was not my concern. I get to learn a lot and this field has good growth.

My advice - never stop learning and growing.

As Mark Zuckerburg said "The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that is changing so constantly the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks."
