How can anyone overcome fear of facing or communicating with Big bosses and CEO’s while marketing or contacting for new business?
From United Arab Emirates, Dubai

This is quite natural but the fear can be overcome::
1. Be prepared with your subject thoroughly
2. Anticipate the type of questions they can ask and prepare accordingly.
3. Don't feel yourself to be inferior to anyone.
4. Be bold and don't be afraid to make mistakes
5. Be polite yet be confident
6. Smile and talk - it indicates confidence and quietens the butterflies in the stomach
Do your best and forget the rest.
All the best

Dear Friend,

If you can understand Tamil, then watch "Kurudhi Punal" a tamil movie by Dr. Padmashree Kamalahasan. He'll deliver the follwong dialogue to the Villain,

"Do you know what courage is? It is a perfect acting like we don't have fear"

Its true. Most of the courageous personalities too possess fear but they overcome it by hiding it behind their success. Forget fear do your business as it is your hobby. Definitely you'll overcome the fear and follow the simple steps as Mr. Riyaz, pointed out. Especially his last point ( Do your best and forget the rest) I do strongly believe in that.

"தெய்வத்தான் ஆகா தெனினும் முயற்சி தான்

மெய் வருத்தக் கூலி தரும்"

திருக்குறள் - 619.

(Though fate-divine should make your labour vain;

Effort its labour's sure reward will gain.

Thirukural - 619

Although it be said that, through fate, it cannot be attained, yet labour, with bodily exertion, will yield

its reward.)

Hope you'll come here back after overcoming your fear and succeed in your business.

"எண்ணித் துணிக கருமம் எண்ணியபின்

எண்ணுவம் எனபது இழுக்கு"

திருக்குறள் - 467.

(Think, and then dare the deed! Who cry,

'Deed dared, we'll think,' disgraced shall be.

Thirukural - 619

Consider, and then undertake a matter; after having undertaken it, to say "We will consider," is folly).

All the best.

Dear Khifah
Fear will always be there even if you are in the business for decades! But Riyaz has provided quality and practical inputs. Thanks.
To Riyaz's list, I would like to add 2 more points:
1. It is perfectly ok to admit that you do not have the answers to their questions BUT promised them that you will get back with the answers soon. Once you promised, MAKE SURE YOU DO JUST THAT! This adds honestly, sincerity and creditability.
2. Smile, talk and LISTEN - you need to listen attentatively in order to understand their needs before you can provide them with suitable solutions.
Personally, I do 1 more thing, i.e. I will say a little pray asking for "Wisdom of thoughts, Wisdom of speech and Wisdom of action to successfully complete the meeting". :)

"If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.
"If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will-
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
"Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!"
"Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve" - ALL THE BEST
