Cold feet

 In English, when we say we've got cold feet we mean we lack the confidence or courage to do something.

Examples:

Mary knew Tony had bought her engagement ring and was planning to propose on Valentine's Day. She just hoped he wouldn't get cold feet before then.

The company directors were getting cold feet about a deal which could make or break their business.
