Are You Afraid of Success?

Did you know that some people are actually afraid of success? That may sound silly, or even impossible at first. But the fact is that many of us struggle to achieve the things we desire because of subconscious fears.

Consciously, you plan and work and strive to succeed in the areas which are important to you. But for whatever reason, your hard work and success is thwarted.

Why is this the fate of so many people? In many cases, it is because past experiences in your life have subconsciously made you afraid of success.

Perhaps the environment you grew up in was repeatedly and silently telling you each and every day that "people like you" never get ahead.

And if you grew up in a loving and positive environment, but your parents and your family scraped to get by, your brain could be hard-wired to believe that financial success will create a loveless and unhappy life for you.

It is very difficult to overcome years of negative subconscious success beliefs. But that is exactly what is required if you want to achieve success in any area.

The powerfully positive news is that once you actually, totally believe you deserve success in any particular aspect of your life, your achievement of that success usually comes rather quickly.

Thomas Alva Edison is known as one of the greatest inventors in history. He once said that, "I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work." Consistently tell yourself that you deserve success. You will fail.

You will have speed bumps and problems which arise between you and whatever level of success you desire. Just pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start again.

Here is where you need to follow the lessons of other successful people. First, make it a habit of practicing daily affirmations of success. Tell yourself you are worthy of success.

Tell yourself out loud that you are not afraid of failure, or the rewards that success brings.

Write these mantras on a small card and keep it in your wallet or purse where you can constantly review it throughout the day. It is possible to reprogram your brain with positive repetitious statements concerning your success beliefs, and daily affirmations help.

It is very natural to fear the unknown. And in many cases, success is unknown to many of us. Just remember that with a relentless tenacity and a true self-belief that you deserve the successful achievement of your goals, you can and will learn to embrace success rather than fear it.
