Getting Rid of the Fear of Success
So what do we do about this? The Daily Om advises: Replaces negative thoughts with encouraging facts. “Tell yourself that the inevitability of your success is based not on luck or a universal mistake but on your already established talents, drive, imagination, and inner strength. Each time you overcome your fear of the future, you chip away at its very foundations. Eventually, you will clear a gap through which you can gaze upon the future with unhindered optimism.”
I’ve never felt I had any fear of success. But I know that I can get agitated when more than one suitor, personal or professional, is competing for my attention. I also think that this kind of fear hides in the basement and sends obstacles up to the first floor. So I do think it’s important to pay attention to whether such a fear might be getting in the way.
