Fear of Success - Fear of Failure - Both the Same?

Fear of success is not the same as fear of failure, although fear of failure can cause one to have a fear of success. For more information on the topic of the fear of failure, see the post on my blog dated; Jun 9, 2010. It's actually the post before this one.

Both fears share the defeatist attitude!  Both cripple and stagnate expansion in our lives. When people have a fear of success, they sabotage their efforts either consciously or subconsciously. There are different situations that may cause this. What it boils down to is...

...bad thought habits stored in our subconscious minds. These could have been planted there by our parents or guardians, teachers, peers or some negative experience that we may have personally had. We may have been told that our best options were to get an education and a good paying...

...job, because going into business for ourselves was risky and not worth the headaches.  Or, that if we didn't get a good education, we would spend the rest of our lives with low paying, inferior employment.

Were you told that you were worthless? 

This could lead to low self esteem.  Growing up as a troubled teenager,  I remember a school counselor telling others - while my being present,  that when I grew up I wasn't going to amount to anything. That I was trouble! Statements like that can have a lasting negative affect on...

...anyone - but especially on a young mind, particularly when coming from a so called authority figure. Having self esteem issues, some may feel that they can't be successful, that success is beyond their reach. Then there are those who upon finding their comfort zones,  are afraid to venture success because...

...change and challenges are involved. As mentioned in the beginning of this page, some are afraid of success because they are afraid to fail. All of the above mentioned, as well as others reasons not listed can lead to the fear of success. Putting it all into one lump sum, It involves stinkin thinkin! 

The collection of bad thought habits that...

...are stored in our subconscious minds. Before uprooting this fear of success, thought habits have to be changed. If you are a regular visitor to my website you know that the first thing that I am going to recommend is a Paradigm Shift. The shifting of the collection of...

...bad thought habits to a collection of new and positive ones. If you don't do this, and go on to attempt success, you will struggle. The reason that I mention this is because struggling...

...and the "Law of Attraction" does not mix. In order to use the "Law" effectively we must be able to activate it in our favor by using positive thoughts and emotions. We have to dismiss all thoughts and feelings of this fear of success, of failure and of doubt. The "Law" does...

...not struggle and God does not struggle. He did not put us here to struggle or to fail, he gave us everything that we need to succeed, he wants us to  have success in our lives. It is up to us to realize this. It is up to us to take the...

...necessary steps to accomplish this knowing. So like a sponge - soak up knowledge of the Creator and his "Law of Attraction."  Once you begin to understand and realize the power and the force that is behind you...



...your confidence will grow. You were born to succeed - YOU CAN SUCCEED! Now the rest is up to you.
