Are you afraid of success?
I’m changing my live. I think that if I keep doing what I do, I’ll keep getting what I got. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with what I do have. But that doesn’t mean that I have to settle for that.
I don’t want to worry about paying the bills at the end of the month or if we can go on holiday this year. So I decided to change my live and I’ll make it a success.
If I tell people that I want to make a lot of money, they often react if it is something bad. It is not right.For me success is not only having a lot of money. success for me is that I can do what I want, when I want, with whom I want and as much as I want.
What is keeping people from having success?
A subtle variation of fear for failure is the fear of success. You might think that these are two opposite fears, but they are not, they are in the same line. Why are we afraid of having success? What is keeping us? If you focus, you’ll see that the fear is based on wrong assumptions.
Why are we afraid of success?
From what I red, I came to the conclusion that people are not afraid of success, but for what it means to us. If you have a negative interpretation of success, than you will try to avoid it.
If you have a healthy attitude towards success, the fear will go away! and success will come
So, how do you think about success
Imagion that your were successful, would you think that:
a: Nobody likes you, because you are “different”?
b:people think your arrogant?
c: you have make enemy’s or victims?
d: success is there at the expense of you health, you free time and you relationships?
c:Have success is stressful and tiring?
Who takes responsibility?
If you think all these things above, no wonder you sabotage your own success, don’t you think? I mean, who wants stress, egoism and broken relationships?
Another important thing what stops people from having success is taking responsibility. If your are successful, you have to take responsibility. And that is scary. Fear for success is fear for responsibility
Because, basically, if you don’t do anything, no one an accuse you of anything. Nobody will criticize you and you won’t do anything wrong.
Success means you have to take responsibility for your own live and there for being responsible for the result.
See what I mean, the fair .for failure and success are in one line. Both are fears for a negative result, because of our actions.
Self confidence is the solution!
Do you sabotage yourself?
If people associate success with something negative, the next step will automatically be to prevent themselves from being successful. Who?
Postpone everything, you can find hundreds of reasons to do nothing. This is very affective: Nobody holds you responsible for you success because you’ll never be successful!
So stop being afraid and take action! everybody will benefit.
till next time
