Some may see this title and think, “Why in the world would anyone be afraid of success?” or “Everyone wants to succeed, so how could they fear that?” Nevertheless there are truly people out there who are afraid of success, myself included in the past.
When you are afraid of success you may not realize it on a conscience level. Something inside can keep one from seeing their true potential, while others may see it as clear as day when they get to know that person.
It is not as uncommon as you may think, to fear success. Their are many who are letting their lack of self confidence and fears hold them back. You could be the biggest thing that is holding you back from living the life that you want. You could be blocking your own success!
How many times have you heard someone tell you that you have so much potential or that you are exceptionally good at something only to have your own nagging thoughts plant the seeds of doubt within your head.
At that moment you are blocking your own success because if you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t try very hard if you even try at all because you already know that you will fail. How you perceive yourself will determine how well you do.
Take steps in the right direction by really examining and scrutinizing yourself the way you would observe someone else if it weren’t you. More likely than not you are more readily to accept and believe in the talents of another than you are to believe in yourself if you are one who has a lot of doubts about yourself.
Figure out what your strengths are. It’s all to easy to figure out where you are weak at. You will want to capitalize on your strong areas while building on your weak areas.
Figure out what is holding you back, change your mindset and dismiss it if you really want to succeed. Throw those nagging doubts right into the proverbial trashcan and dump it … fast.
Do you think you really aren’t smart enough to reach your goal?
Throw that nagging thought away!
Do you feel that you don’t have what it takes to live out your dreams?
Throw that nagging thought away!
Negative thoughts will not help but they will hinder.
Figure out what your dreams are if you have one. If not think about it and develop your dream. It’s okay to not know everything. Some dreams start out as one thing and develop into a whole new dream over time.
Find out what your passion is and what makes you happy. What’s the biggest goal that you have? Is it running your own company, designing your own products or writing a book? It could even be starting a successful website, speaking at a conference or gaining leadership in your MLM company. Passion varies from person to person so only you can figure out what your passion is.
You can do it! Don’t tell yourself any different. Learn, apply and grow if you don’t know something. We all start out as newbies.
Give yourself permission to feel good about yourself. Send those negative thoughts away by replacing them with postive thoughts. Allow yourself to feel that you are worthy of success. No one is better than you because no one can be you like you can.
I’m working on trying to live my dream now even though it can be a struggle at times because I’m not perfect. I’m giving myself permission to feel good about myself and acknowledging my strengths. I want to be successful at what I do and I’m willing to make myself a little uncomfortable to get there.
If you are shy like me than you may at times have a hard time expressing yourself for fear of what others may think. I’m working hard to overcome that. I have thoughts and opinions that people can benefit from and the only way they will is if I open my mouth and speak or write it down to be read.
I’m facing my fears and you can too. Many times it is the build up of thinking about the fear and the “What ifs?” that is scarier than the actual act itself.
It’s not cocky to feel that you are good at something. We all have different talents that are worthy of appreciation. We need to bestow the same compliments on ourselves as we would another and stop being our worst critic, going overboard with self examination.
Take a moment to step back out of your own way and take a step toward success. You’re worth it and so is your dream.
To your success,
They say anything worth doing is worth doing right. Who are they anyway? No seriously, I have been challenging myself to venture into a place I have never been before. The world of PLR writing.
I have dreams and goals that I want to accomplish so this is an absolute necessity if I want to make it happen. Key words, I want. No one else is going to and no one can make this happen for me.
The same applies to you and your dreams. For me it could be setting my PLR writing shop up just the way I want it and having a grand opening and for you it could be something else.
Or it could be losing all of the weight that I am tired of carrying around. I have a long term goal of wanting to be able to purchase clothing without having to go to a plus sized store.
I have more than one dream that I intend to accomplish. Don’t feel that you can only have one dream. It’s not true, it just takes proper planning.
However, no matter what your dream is no matter how small or how big, there is something that it has in common with my dreams.
1. It needs a plan. Without a plan you will be hither and thither running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to figure out what it is you should be doing to make your dream work. Plan your work and work your plan.
A very simple concept that many, including myself at times, overlook.
2. Your plan needs to be implemented by being put to action. Without action, your dream is at a complete standstill and no more important than any other thought that flutters through your brain without a second thought.
3. Persistence is very necessary. Even with a plan and putting that plan to action, there is no guarantee that your dream will come to full achievement within a minute, day, week, month or even a year.
While we have high hopes for our dreams it is only through planning, action and being persistent that we truly make it happen.
When we let frustration take over and eventually let it break us down and stop us, it leads us right into failure.
How many people have you observed that started something only to give it up a month or two later. If you aren’t in it for the long haul you might as well forget it.
Tough times come and we need to be just as tough or strong if we want to keep a firm grasp on what we have or it will blow away from us if we open up our hand wide enough to let it go.
I am determined to make it happen. It may not happen overnight but I will work hard towards my dreams. What are your dreams and what are you doing to make it happen?
