How To Address Your Fear Of Success – One Step At A Time
Hey Guys! I thought I`d write a blog post today about confronting fears in one particular area of our lives. It`s called How to Address Your Fear Of Success – One Step At a Time. So following on from that let me ask you this question..
Do you feel you are as successful as you want to be in life?
I`m guessing that in general most people would answer that the pinnacle of success has eluded them or has not yet been attained.
I understand that being successful can mean many things, and one aspect of being successful to a person can mean something completely different to another.
However, it can be quite common as a general view that many of the people who deem themselves as not successful, also may not know why they haven’t reached this point in their lives yet.
Failures In The Past
You see, they appear to be working hard to make this happen but often the underlying answer to the question really involves fear.
Are you perhaps afraid of the success you desire and this fear is holding you back. Maybe if you really look into yourself on a deeper level, you might be thinking you don’t feel like you deserve success or doubt your ability to achieve what you truly want.
Throughout your life you may have failed in certain things you’ve tried, became disheartened and gave up. This is common with us all so its nothing to be ashamed of.
Also, instead of learning from the mistakes you made, those failures have been allowed to curb your enthusiasm and desire for success. All of which has subsequently been holding you back.
Another common trait amongst people who don`t see themselves as successful is they tend to focus on the negative aspects of their lives, they are full of fear and self-doubt.
Other negative people in your life may be compounding the situation by reminding you of how many times you’ve tried to succeed in things, yet failed.
Strategies For Success
So let`s take a look at a few strategies you can start introducing from today to get some positivity back into your life…
- Making a plan is key and you can employ any means necessary that works for you. I highly recommend getting it all down in writing with my FREE Personal Development Plan. This way it helps give you a clear and defined vision. You may also want to surround yourself with more positive thinkers and spending much less time if any with negative personalities. This may also include friends and dare I say it, some family members who you feel are holding you back.
- Keep a gratitude journal, vision board or being more mindful in everything you attempt.
- Be true and honest and tune in to your authentic self. Everyone has stress in today`s fast paced world, this is a fact of life, however to face your fear of success and overcome it, you really need to know who are, know your passions and identify what truly makes you happy.
- Be aware that if you don`t take time out to enjoy life, take a rest and recharge, getting too caught up in responsibilities and chasing goals could actually work against you. Make sure you allow time for yourself and get to know yourself.
Take ten minutes a day to meditate perhaps, listen to music or do whatever you feel will help you get in touch with yourself.
Inspiration For Success
Find the inspiration you need to spur you on to much better things. Inspiration can be found all around us and some good resources include books, music, people and even animals.
People can often find the necessary inspiration by seeking courage to try new things, many a success story has come from this avenue if you are willing to try.
Read their stories to get your creative juices flowing and write your own life success story so to speak. I recognise that a great many of us are going through life experiencing great distress or trauma and your path to success is hindered in that respect, you may even want to avoid it.
However, unless you identify and acknowledge it for what it is and use it to your advantage, its likely that these disadvantages will continue to consume you.
I myself have personal experience of this when my I lost a close family member. I lost focus, motivation and it proved really hard to get back on track.
I had to really work hard on myself and its one of the reasons I decided to start this blog. I have every confidence you too can get back on track aswell if you are currently in a place where life seems against you and your heart is filled with sadness.
Fear can often haunt you if the future is uncertain, you are confused about what to do next or feel out of control. It can paralyse you and keep you out of touch with reality.
With a little inspiration and conviction I know you can banish these fears, which are only temporary and obtain the success you seek.
The Journey To Success
Be sure of this, try to remember that success isn’t really a destination. Success is a journey that’s filled with learning and ensuring the education you have acquired is put into action.
Endeavour to enjoy yourself whilst on this journey, learn about your passions and how to fulfill them, create the success you desire and live the life you deserve. Discover how to address your fear of success, one step at a time.
