About Conquering the Fear Of Success
“It is not the mountain we conquer, but
ourselves.” ~~Sir Edmund Hillary
In order to conquer the fear of success, it is necessary to recognize fear exists. Even the best of us, who believe we have our fears conquered and only go for the best, harbor a fear of some sort.
In order to attain success and achieve goals, inhibiting fear MUST be eliminated from your conscious and subconscious mind. Our conscious mind responds to what we see and feel and want. Our evil twin, the subconscious, has us all prepared with the necessary excuses to often keep us from even trying to attain that which we want so much.
“You must do the thing that you fear until
the fear of that thing becomes no more.”
~~ Brian Tracy
How to do that? Make the reward greater than the pain. In keeping with how to get rid of the fear, what if the reward you create is how many people you could help if you attain the success you seek? Can you make that list, their needs, big enough to help you overcome your fear of being successful?
Be careful here to create ONE big need at a time in order that you do not become a victim of success expectancy.
Each time you are sucked into some program you are not sure is what you need, but something you thought might be the answer to your prayers, you end up feeling discouraged for not doing what they said was ‘so easy.’
Disappointed and thoroughly disillusioned, you quit. Turn your back on all things Internet. You are a failure. You could not do what grandma surely could do.
What you have to think about is, what happened to you when you failed? Nothing! Matter of fact, if anything happened, it was the positive award of learning a valuable life lesson. Hang onto that so-called ‘failure.’ Breathe it, taste it until the life lesson soaks through. Then you can let go of the fear but assuredly hang onto the life lesson.
What if the fear you are feeling is self-perpetuated? The only fear that is stopping you from getting what you want, is the fear you yourself create? Test it first before becoming a victim. Set out the award you feel is so important at the other end of the journey. Then go for it.
With each of life’s lessons building in your subconscious, what you will end up doing is fearing nothing, for you are building your staircase to success.
“Success is active. Action dispels fear. If you sit still, fear has the time to paralyze your abilities and efforts, ultimately causing you to fail. Continue to move toward your goals with great diligence and great courage!” – Myles W. Miller, “The Power of Conquering Fear“
