Fear of Success and How to Get Rid of it
Are you subconsciously afraid of success?
That may sound like an unbelievable question, but let me explain.
Have you ever found yourself on the verge of success, when things seem to start going downhill?
It starts with an inkling of irritation – other people, tasks, technology you relied on so far are no longer as good as they used to be.
What’s wrong with them? You think. Don’t they realise how important this is? Why do they keep making the same stupid mistakes!?
As time passes and you’re that close to reaching a successful benchmark, things start to get agitated. You blurt out something to your partner. Or say something stupid to your team.
What’s going on with me!
Your friends, colleagues and peers give you a piece of their mind.
Stop being so touchy all the time!
But little does that work. Slowly, you start to lose that “spark” that got you to here.
So – is something terribly wrong with you? Have you lost the fire in the belly? Do the same goals no longer excite you?
On the surface, the answer could be a resounding yes. On the subconscious level, however, what’s happening is far from it.
