Well, you can kind of see where I'm coming from there. (I hope.) If not, this is how this fear can also be summarised:
"Success fear is real! And it makes achieving
any real success difficult and unlikely"
This page (with YouTube video) explains more, and I also give some success fear examples too... It also provides you with recommended resources as to how to deal with this fear.
Oh boy, I've been looking forward to talking about this fear almost since I had the idea for this website in February 2008. I mean, how can anyone fear 'success'? It just sounds crazy, doesn't it, and yet... success fear is very real.
Let me give you some 'success fear' examples:
The odd thing about these examples is that, quite often, it looks like there is no fear of being successful, just success (i.e. the dating man convinces himself that he has successfully weeded out yet another 'unsuitable')
Okay, let's get a few things straight! Fear of success...
I didn't coin that piece of wisdom (alas) - I read it somewhere (and I'll remember where, soon), but it's true nevertheless.
So what's the answer?
Well, as always the solution to any problem comes from recognising that you have the problem in the first place. Then it's a matter of taking the necessary action (see recommended resources below, for one such action you could take). Simple, really!
(NOTE: Whist this page is part of a series of pages on success, it could also be part of a series of pages on fear, too!)
Anyway, more of my thoughts follow (on YouTube)...
Overcoming so-called success fear is probably one of the things that separates 'winners' (success-types) from 'losers'. And there are many ways to challenge what limits us, for sure, but one recommended way is for us to quite literally reprogram ourselves - and self-hypnosis is a great way of doing just that!
So, yes, the following 'hypnotic' resource (from HypnosisDownloads.com - staffed by qualified professionals, and online since 1995) provides you with a way to reprogram your own mind to overcome this fear: overcome success fear self-hypnosis script.
