AFRAID OF SUCCESS? HERE IS HOW TO AWARE OF THIS FEAR AND HOW TO CONQUER IT!
All crave success, and virtually everyone wants to succeed. However, there is a major obstacle many faces when pursuing success — FEAR!
Fear can be described as a two-edged sword that can propel one for success at the same time it can be an instrument for one’s downfall or failure. Today we will be looking at a few things that might be responsible for your fears and active steps to be taken to conquer them all.
Have you experienced the feeling that you get when you see a successful person, that feeling of wanting to be like them? where you judgmental on how they achieved their success?
That feeling is normal but one thing I realized from years of analyzing success is that many tell their success stories as a journey of being relentless, countless hours of unseen hard work, and consistency. Successful people take the bull by the horn and work towards achieving success. Success is usually never given on a platter of gold; it is something you work towards every single day.
REASONS WHY YOU ARE AFRAID
Fear of judgments: Most of the times our opinions about how others achieved their success become the root of our fears. The negativity in your judgments of others success has been what in one way or another affecting us. This simple key means that the thought of being judged the same way we judge others forms the basis of our fear of success. Therefore it is advised we jubilate and celebrate with others in success because surely one good turn deserves another. This is the key to conquering this particular fear.
Fear of pressure: Sometimes we are faced with the pressure from family and friends of having to impress every time they come around. The fear and pressure can be intense that happiness leaves you, increased anxiety, and low esteem which is one of the major factors that contributes to failure. Hardly do you achieve success in a hurry or under pressure. To conquer this fear simply do yourself the favor of appreciating your little efforts and little success as this boosts your chances of achieving great things. Tell yourself there is no good in rushing, after all, the popular saying goes thus: anything worth doing is worth doing well.
Fear of failure: No one likes to fail. Failure has no friends. Nobody identifies with failure, Due to this, the fear of failure remains deep in everyone’s heart even in the so-called successful ones. The fear that they might one day be pushed out of the top, therefore they do everything in their power to see that they maintain the number one spot. Statistics has it that the chances of failure are greater than chances of success but that notwithstanding success is still possible if only you can work towards it. Conquering this particular fear is straightforward, all you have to do is channel your positive energy towards what you have in mind to achieve rather than having thoughts you will fail. You are not a failure you are a conqueror.
