This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Pamela.
Can you please tell me how to get over the fear of success? I believe it’s what’s continually stopping me from hitting my goals!
Thank you so much!
Hi Pamela, and thanks for your question!
The truth is that no one is actually afraid of success.
That’s a false belief 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. Are you afraid someone will leave?
2) The fear of what people will think if they were successful or wealthy. How would your family respond if you stood up and told them you decided to be insanely wealthy?
3) The fear of what people will think if they fail.
These are the top 3, but of course there are many other beliefs that keep us bound in chains and constantly striving for success, yet never achieving it.
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 belief is renting space in your brain, because if you wanted success as much as you wanted air to breath, you would have it.
