This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Val Charman. You can find her on the web at www.valcharman.co.uk.
Please can you tell me how you get past the fear of success? I know that I'm not afraid of failure as I have done that many times but just as I get close to a breakthrough, or am in danger of achieving my goal, something bad happens and I have to start all over again. I am convinced that I am sabotaging my own success out of some inbuilt fear and I don't know how to overcome it.
Many thanks for your help.
Hi Val and thanks for your question!
The truth is that no one is actually afraid of success.
That's a false lie created by our ego.
If you were afraid of success, you'd never put your pants on the in the morning, because even putting your pants on is a success.
In reality what people ARE afraid of is:
1) The fear of what they believe they will have to sacrifice to be successful. This is mainly true in regard to relationships.
So you are correct, you are sabotaging your success.
Universal truth states that we create everything; all the good and bad, all the successes and all the failures.
So you need to get very clear on how never achieving the success you want keeps you safe.
I know you're thinking, “No David, not having the success keeps me feeling unsafe, why would I not want success?”
And I would answer that you have to consider what fear is renting space in your brain, because if you wanted that success as much as you wanted air to breath, you would have it.
