Your Fear Of Success
by: Selena Richardson
The fear of success is more
common than some might realize. Just the thought of 'What it would be like
to...' is enough to set some people off.
One might start talking about
how he could never be successful. Well if he keeps saying things like that
he'll end up proving himself right.
Or if one's a dreamer she'll
keep dreaming about what she wants to achieve. But will she ever take action? I
Not until she gets over her
And there are those people who
don't even realize that the fear of being successful is the key to what's
holding them back. It's like they're in a holding pattern. They make progress
