I’m sure some of you are probably looking at the title and thinking, “What…fear of what?

Success, who would be afraid to succeed?

There are many people who are truly afraid of success. I used to be one of those people myself.

There was something deep down holding me back from recognizing the potential I had inside. Others could see it, but it was as if I was blind to it completely.

Many people find they are the only thing holding them back from the life they want to lead.

Now take a look at yourself, not just your outer self, but your inner self. Really examine who you are, where you’ve been and what it is you want out of life.

If you find yourself coming up short of your goals over and over again or worse yet never set goals at all, stop and think about why that is.

Here are a few questions you should be exploring the answers to.

  • What holds you back?
  • Why don’t you go after what you want in life?
  • Do you think you don’t have what it takes to reach your goals or live your dream?
  • Do you feel like you’re not smart enough or talented enough to live your dream?

Believe me when I tell you I’ve been there and still struggle at times with believing I have what it takes to live my dream. But as I get older (which happens a lot faster now for some reason) I am realizing I DO have what it takes to be successful in life.

I AM smart and I AM talented! I am living my dream of working from home, owning my own business and doing something I truly love.

What’s in your heart? Is there a burning passion deep inside that keeps tugging at your heart or recurring in your mind? Do you see yourself doing something like speaking on the big stage at an annual conference or being the top producer in the nation?

Go for it!

Don’t let your fears or anxiety get in your way. Figure out what you are afraid of and the things that are holding you back. Then, learn to overcome them. It is possible to get through when fear tries to stand in your way.

I know – I have done it! I have had an amazing increase in business since I found out what was getting in my way.

I actually will be speaking about this and what steps I have taken to over come this during my talk on Sept 14th during my upcoming free virtual summit – “The Ultimate Client Attraction Summit”
