“Fear of success is being involved in risk to get your hopes up – which threatens to lead to disappointment” – Dr. Babbel (psychology, today.com)
In my counseling career and even my passion with blogging, I too have insecurities, second-guessing myself often and nit picking on things. I don’t want them holding me back in knowing that I can succeed. Life is about taking risk.
“Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”
People don’t usually talk about the fear of success and how it can lead to procrastinating or becoming easily frustrated over the simplest things. Additionally, it can create a lack of focus. You may even end up multitasking when you shouldn’t be. You know that you deserve happiness and live a fulfilling life. If you know that you’re on the verge of success, know that you deserve success.
Life is supposed to be about making me mistakes, figuring out a better way to solve each issue and enjoying each milestone in the process. When success does not come easy to us subconsciously; there’s a natural part of us that doesn’t want success. We all want things to come easy but taking the steps to overcome your fear of success can put you in the right direction in taking that step further towards your goals.We have to start believing in ourselves and having faith in our power and abilities.
Overcome Your Fear of Success and Getting Your Power Back
You are who you hang around. You need people around you that have the same vision and mindset as you. If you hang around negative people, it’s challenging to keep focused. It’s okay if not everyone will like you it’s about focusing on your mission/goal.
Power of Inquisitive Thinking
Learn more about your business, product or services where you feel prepared. If you feel unsure about a certain aspect of your business it means it’s time to do some research. Sometimes, we need to educate ourselves to get to that next step. It’s about crawling before you walk. No need to feel afraid when you just got to take one step at a time.
Accepting the Power of Change
When things start becoming successful in your business, community, or project, this sometimes results in change. I know we can get so worried about change even though we’re fully aware that it’s inevitable. Write down your goals for your business and accept that to get where you want to go it’s going to take some changes to get there. Have a positive support system around that supports you. If you don’t have a close support system, try to find an online group, start a meetup group, or read a book that would lead you in the right direction. You have the power in you to make things happen for you. You have every right to be successful might as well take that chance to make it happen.
