I used to question what it meant to be afraid of success. I’m still confused by the thought! How can someone be afraid of success???!!
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think I’ve come to understand that fear of success comes from the fear of failure. The fear that you won’t be able to achieve. You are so afraid of achieving that you allow your fears of challenge and failure to overcome you.
Let me speak for myself.
Plenty of times, I have been so afraid of achieving a small or big accomplishment because fear has overcome me. I knew deep inside I was capable but I did not allow that small bit of courage to grow with action when the opportunity was there!
But I have been so fortunate to learn such wise words at a seminar a few years ago:
“Fear is learned”
I have learned that there are only two natural fears. Fear of falling and fear of loud sounds. Those are the two fears we natural have as a infant. (But maybe fear of strangers is a natural fear as well?…in reference to fear of the unknown..that must be natural as well…..just as natural as fear of the dark but then again the fear of the dark can be learned as well when are encouraged to watch scary movies, yes?…….)
But moving on……
I will teach myself to erase all fears of failure. If failure comes, I understand that failure is only feedback.
Failure is just like constructive criticism. Constructive criticism is meant to encourage improvement not discourage one to stop what one is doing!
So I will learn from the experience, practice prevention and try again.
How long should you try? Until….. – Jim Rohn
And I will try again and again and again…….. Until.
Thank you Jim Rohn <3 <3 <3
Fear of failure is no longer allowed in my mental space. I welcome failure as constructive criticism. #inspiredaction
What could go wrong if I established a small business?
Anything and Everything.
What could go right?
~~~ Everything I imagined and more. ~~~
Problems are inevitable. Challenge is inevitable. There is one thing that I have come to realize. All the problems that I will face in life have been solved before I was even born.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for. – Socrates
