But What If We’re Successful?

Fear of failure is one of the most key reasons – if not the most key reason – for why we procrastinate, sell ourselves false promises, quit a project or just simply don’t show up for duty. Continuing to push through the fear can be quite the challenge.

Fear of success though is at least as big a challenge as fear of failure, because vanquishing the fear may mean that our efforts start working – generating tangible results which will change our lives somehow. Ready for that?

I suspect that we prepare ourselves for failure much more so than we do for success.
