The fear of success can be a paralyzing force.
You might not even realize it's there. You might think you're just being humble, or trying to do the right thing by not looking too far ahead or earning too much money.
But it's not that—it's actually a fear of success. And it can really hold you back from experiencing all the good things life has in store for you.
What is success? We're not talking about some kind of external metric—we're talking about you feeling genuinely happy with what you've accomplished in life, from getting your first job to raising a family to starting your own business. But when we have this fear of success, we tend to measure ourselves by external factors like money and fame instead of by internal factors like feeling good about ourselves and our ability to make choices that help us grow as people (and yes even help us achieve financial independence).
Thoughts to ponder.
