As humans, we naturally have fears. Whether it’s a fear of spiders or of snakes or any number of things. However, people can also have a fear of success.
How? You may ask. Simple:
1. People are afraid of change. As much as people may complain about their lives or their daily routine, they’re also comfortable with it. There’s a certain level of certainty that they have. And although there may be bumps in the road or obstacles ahead, they’re fairly certain that they can overcome them and continue on with their routine.
When you enter success into the equation, suddenly their life is on a different path. There’s an unknown variable and people aren’t exactly sure what to do, considering what they see is new and different. They’re putting themselves out there to new pressures and demands. The good news though, is if you can handle the tough times, you’ll be that much happier and more thankful for the good times.
2. Criticism. For those who finally decide to make the change in their life, whether it’s starting a blog, a new job, or a new hobby, there’s going to be criticism. When you’ve done the same thing as everyone else for any length of time, people begin to expect it from you. So when you change that routine, naturally, there’s going to be some backlash.
People don’t expect you to change. But their expectations do not need to be your reality. Here’s a tip: Misery loves company. Those who are miserable with their routine find comfort in knowing that they’re not the only ones who are miserable.
When you decide to go after your dream, nothing can stop you! All the criticism in the world won’t mean a thing if you can look yourself in the mirror and be proud of who you see!
3. Unworthy. Whether it’s a Steve Jobs, Zig Ziglar, Anthony Robbins or any other successful person, we tend to put these people up on pedestals. We may not feel worthy of their level of success. We see them as tremendous human beings. Which, for what they’ve done, they are! They’ve found a way to maximize their potential. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t as well!
Do you think that every successful person started out with the mindset that they were going to be who they became? No! Everyone has had doubts in their life. Whether it’s the direction they’re going or perhaps, their own feelings of self-worth. However, you have the power to change that. The only person who has control over your life and how you feel is you. Believe me, each and every one of you are worthy!
4. I’m good where I’m at. Are you? I mean, seriously? If you’re truly happy with where you are in your life, then why are you reading this right now? Why settle for good, when you can be GREAT!
I want to challenge you to be the absolute best YOU that you can be, because there’s no one else like you! You truly are a one and only. Don’t let the fear of success stop you from becoming who you want to be!
Wishing you Great Success!
